Eynesbury Homestead and Forrest Bridal Inspiration...

The first time I went to Eynesbury Homestead, I was in love. Grey Box Forrest that you drive through is just so beautifully raw and has so much beauty waiting to seen in images. Then to see this century old homestead was just soothing to me, its all the old beautiful textures I just adore. The blue stone, the vines, big white wooden doors, lavender, fireplaces, old books... All I could feel was - I have to photograph here! 

So some amazing and wonderful local wedding business' came together and created this beautiful scene, its everything I dreamed of for Eynesbury Homestead and Grey Box Forrest and more... Shehzarin Batha Couture's gowns were breathtaking and we knew instantly after visiting her shop front which gowns were perfect for this shoot, although I must admit I was taken by all of them! Shehz is so lovely to just speak to, let alone her beautiful handmade gowns. Stephanie and Belinda saw the vision and delivered so beautifully in hair and make-up, as did Bacchus Marsh Florist and Another Sweet Slice - oh the natives!

I had a teary and hugged everyone at the end because well thats just what I do! I feel honoured when I get to work with beautiful creatives and like minded professionals like these ones before your eyes!

Me and my loves day in front of the camera...

So whilst my portraiture style is completely different from documentary style photography, I really adore the way documentary photographers tell a story. I wanted my little love story captured and told, so the gorgeous Cybelle from Cybelle Jones Photography met (and surprised) myself and my love at a little cafe inner city Melbourne. I kind of knew what to expect but at the same time I'm used to giving a lot of direction to my clients when photographing and well - this was different. It was fun though, nearly felt a little rock star like getting your photos taken while your sitting eating at a cafe! Tammy struggled a little in front of the camera, and whilst knowing she loves photos of us, she found it a little hard to be normal - which is normal! I think next time, no surprise shoots and that would eliminate that pressure. Nonetheless we had a fabulous morning full of laughs, so much so we stayed too long and missed our tattoo appointment - oops! Cybelle is so easy going and lovely to be around it was a really relaxed morning.

I friggin love the images, they are so us! Just like I wondered if they would be and I'm happy to share them here with you. Thanks Cybelle xx
