Darlington Estate Winery Wedding
8th September 2018 - Darlington Estate Winery WeddingJade & David
It was so lovely to be chosen by Bride Jade and Groom David for their Darlington Estate Winery Wedding. This wedding venue is a cute charmer filled with romantic fairy lights in a stunning hills setting.
I first meet these two love birds at the Swan Valley Open Day in 2017 where I was alongside my favourite DJ/MC, Gavin, from Groovy Entertainment. Jade and David opted for a package deal I have with Groovy Entertainment for wedding photography and DJ/MC. I trust my couples are in great experienced hands when I work alongside Gavin. Keep reading and you will find out why.
Something about my photography caught David’s eye. He liked the sharp filterless colourful wedding photographs he saw in my portfolio. According to new wife Jade “David has been in love with your photos since we met you last year.”
As a wedding photographer to have a groom as invested in choosing me for his wedding day tells me both the bride and groom will treasure their wedding photographs and memories and be a breeze to work with on their wedding day. How true this is!
In the lead up to the wedding I got to know these two quite well. At one stage we thought David might be sporting a moonboot on the wedding day! In the end a brace and some normal snazzy shoes was all that was needed.
Rumour has it that these two were high school sweethearts without even knowing it. Jade’s High school friends started to hang out with Anthony, the Bestman at their wedding who had this friend named David! Jade and David attended their year 12 ball together, they tell me it was as friends, it was here and at leavers that Jade was feeling a little bit smitten with David.
As life happens, these two headed separate directions when Jade moved to Perth to study. David took a gap year working alongside his dad in his home town of Geraldton for a year. David decided to head to Perth in 2012 to study and it was here the stars, universes and everything else aligned for Jade and David to start their happily ever after.
Once Again Celebrant Andrew Murfin delivered a great ceremony! This is one celebrant who goes the extra mile. I once read that gentleman carries a handkerchief not for his own use but for the tears of a lady. Needless to say there were happy tears from Bride Jade as she arrived at Darlington and realised she was about to marry the love of her life. Furthermore, right there was reliable celebrant Andrew saving the day and the brides makeup with a Handkerchief. Look closely you can see an “A” initialled on the handkerchief.
By reading about this couple you can probably see that family and friends mean the world to them.
A few months out from the wedding I got a surprise email from Jade’s sister Sophie. Jade,s niece, Jazzy, who is all of 7 years old had been practising her dance moves to surprise her Aunty Jade on her wedding day.
It’s moments like these that require wedding vendors like photographers and DJ/Mc’s to work exceptionally well together to make this all fit into a couple’s timeline, keep the secret and deliver a little nieces dream to dance for her aunty at her wedding. Check the photos out! To Little Jazzy, you are a super star!
To My Beautiful Bride Jade and her Dapper Husband David and all of their “bridal party crew” I think the photographs captured show how easy you all are to be around and how much you all love life and being present in the moment. Thanks for being wonderful!
