Chateau Wyuna | Elissa & Nick’s Wedding
Wedding Photography at Chateau Wyuna
Elissa & Nick were wed in the lovely outdoor gardens at Chateau Wyuna in Mt Evelyn, Melbourne. And I was fortunate enough to be chosen as their wedding photographer.
The morning of, had finally arrived and Elissa and Nick could hardly contain their excitement. I began my day meeting with Elissa at her house where I was greeted by not only her but also her family and closest girlfriends. With stunning, natural light coming through the windows and lighting up Elissa’s wedding gown, and other details for the day, my job was easy. After a very relaxed morning, the calmness of the day quickly turned into a go-go-go mode where we headed over to the ceremony location and the real fun began!
The ceremony was set up outside at the stunning Chateau Wyuna where Elissa’s husband-to-be was waiting for her at the end of the aisle. But before they were reunited hand-in-hand, the ‘ring security’ had to make his way down the aisle too. The way Nick’s face lit up when he saw his soon-to-be-wife was heartwarming. Bianca Paliaga wrote and gave a fantastic ceremony for the two.
Locations & Reception
Once the two were able to walk hand-in-hand back down the aisle now as husband and wife, they were finally able to relax and really take in each other’s company. We shot a group photo of everyone at the ceremony – and Chateau Wyuna’s chapel makes a fantastic backdrop for this. We then photographed the family photos and bridal party photos, a had a few laughs along the way.
The reception was an afternoon formality, which isn’t seen as often however personally I quite liked it. All the usual formalities were done – speeches, cake cut, first dance etc
Elissa & Nick’s wedding at Chateau Wyuna was perfect, and I had a blast being their Melbourne wedding photographer.
