Vines Resort Wedding | Winter

Jessica and Jamie planned a Vines Resort wedding for 2020! We all know what happened next.

These lovers couldn’t wait a second longer and decided not to put their life on hold because of Covid-19, so in a small intimate ceremony obeying the 5 person rule in place at the time, Robert Cross Marriage Celebrant legally wed these young lovers in the midst of the pandemic.

Jessica and Jamie still wanted the wedding of their dreams with their loved ones and set a date in July 2021, to declare their love once more in front of family and friends.

Between the 2 dates they welcomed a beautiful baby boy into their loved-up life and he joined them on the day they declared love again in front of family and friends. Well, he may have slept through that part. 

Grooms Preparations

Arriving to Jamie’s Preparations to was quiet inside for lads. These aren’t any lads most of them are dads. There were little babies everywhere and they later told me before my arrival it was very noisy with upset little ones.

I photographed some memories for this young family, and you will notice in the images a photograph of Jamie and Jessica’s 5 person Covid Wedding.

So much love! And a baby to prove it.

It is wonderful to see couples getting on with their life plans, not rocked at all by this pandemic. 

Jessica’s Preparations

The Vines Resort is perfect for winter wedding day preparations.

Bride Jessica and her tribe were super organised and running on time and might I add so calm!

Jessica’s smile was beaming!

As mother of the bride helped her beautiful daughter into her wedding dress, father of the bride arrives eating a meat pie. His two daughters tell me this is a typical dad moment, and I sneakily caught the moment for them forever.

It’s the typically you, and your family moments that make photographing your weddings super special.

Jessica’s beautiful blooms from Little Blossom Co are divine! Check them out in the photos. 

The Wedding Ceremony

Robert Cross Marriage Celebrant has an amazing presence. If you ever meet him, you will be greeted by the hugest Smile.

Robert legally hitched these 2 lovers in 2020 during the pandemic when weddings were restricted to a 5-person limit.

He delivered a perfect ceremony for Jessica and Jamie in front of all their loved ones to give this bride and groom the wedding day of their dreams.

It was wonderful to see the couple’s son standing beside them, look out for the moment he falls asleep.

The smile on your guests faces as they congratulate you and say hello are moments we know you will cherish forever. The love and laughter can be felt through the photographs taken in these moments and we know when you look back over your wedding day’s it will take you right back to that second in time.

With a huge group photo taken it was time to head off for some fun with the bridal party.

Wedding Photographs at The Vines Resort

Jessica and Jamie’s day didn’t go without some rain. They say its good luck if it rains on your wedding day.

Between the light showers this Bride and her tribe and Groom and his lads took it all in their stride.

From some lakeside moments to an epic champagne shower shot (which might also include some light rain) to bride Jessica really wanting some pics with all of the Kangaroos at the Vines Resort we made these lovers wishes come true.

In the darkness these lovers decided golf buggy photos were a must to feature and Jessica showed us some of her dance moves. Hehe Hehe.

Jessica, Jamie and their gang were so wonderful to be around and photograph, the laughter flowed all day. 

The Wedding Celebrations

It was long overdue! The evening was here. Jessica and Jamie got to celebrate their love and marriage.

From the moment they entered their wedding reception, through the dances and speeches, it was love, laughter, proud parents, and relatives. Proud families that these two beautiful people had cemented their love, started a family and were well on the way to their happily ever after.

Jessica and Jamie – I hope the day you had planned and longed for brings you so much joy when you look over the photographs captured of your day and families and loved ones.  What an honour it was to meet you ALL and share your journey!
