Sarah and Benn’s Chateau Dore Wedding – Bendigo
I’ll never forget when we first met Sarah and she said “Can I hug you? I feel like I know you I’ve followed your work for so long!”
By the end of the meeting the feelings were mutual, we knew these guys were going to be special, so special of course there was no hesitation in travelling to Bendigo for their wedding. WORTH IT!
Sean and I headed to a motel in Bendigo to photograph the both of them getting ready, Benn in a room at one side of the motel and Sarah at the other. For me, hanging out with the girls in the morning of the wedding is one of my favourite parts and this day that was definitely true. Sarah had a beautiful group of girls as her bridesmaids, we are lucky to be photographing one of their weddings next year too!
We headed to the stunning Chateau Dore Wedding venue. Benn looking particularly handsome waiting for his wife-to-be amongst the beautiful Autumn colours of the venue and all their family and friends. A beautiful ceremony was had and things became official between Mr and Mrs Fraser.
Quickly after the ceremony the sunlight was dwindling, the four of us headed off to the lake on the property where the sweetest little boat was, we weren’t entirely sure they weren’t going to fall in the lake… They did it anyway… Troopers!
As for the reception I think the pictures tell the story better than I can. There were tears, laughter and plenty of dancing. We snuck off to the barrel room, ate an amazing meal and finished the night with a spectacular sparkler send off. All in all it was a sensational day and a fabulous celebration of a beautiful couple. Thank you guys xx
