Michelle and Russell are two of our best friends so it seemed natural that they would hire us to take their wedding photos. It was double duty for me as I was also a bridesmaid!
Singlefile winery in Denmark was the perfect setting for the vintage inspired wedding theme that Michelle had painstakingly put together. The weather also played its part well; it was sunny and beautiful with just an occasional gusty wind (we almost lost the veil to the pond/lake but I managed to save it!). The marquee ‘vintage country style’ reception was breath-taking, with Singlefile giving it a spectacular backdrop.
Michelle looked stunning in a gorgeous lace gown from Aubrey Rose, which featured a full train; the look was completed with a simple cathedral veil. The bridesmaids wore wonderful pink and cream floral dresses from Review (which we all agreed were very cute and definitely re-wearable) complemented with beaded belts. The bouquets were a delightful mixture of greens, pinks, cream and white which complemented the theme of the wedding beautifully.
Singlefile has a deck that extends over a pond that is surrounded by huge eucalyptus trees providing a lovely setting for the wedding ceremony. The couple looked amazing together with Russell clearly besotted by his beautiful bride. Michelle couldn’t stop smiling at her beau; Russell proved so much a distraction for our bride that she valiantly tried to put his ring on the wrong finger (which resulted in much cute giggling) but eventually she realised her error and the ceremony continued as expected. After the ceremony the bridal party remained at Singlefile for their shots, before the couple departed for some more photos of just them two at various Denmark locations, including Greens pool.
Returning in the evening to their chic wedding reception, they partied the night away, dancing and mingling with friends and family. At 11:00 a sparkler farewell was prepared and the couple departed; a perfect end to a perfect day.
Congratulations Michelle and Russell, we may be biased but you guys were awesome, may you have many happy years ahead of you!
