Ominous storm clouds threatened Warialda all day on the Saturday of the long weekend, but the weather gods were shining down on Bill and Hannah, ensuring their wedding stayed dry and trouble free from the elements.
The setting for the ceremony and reception was on Bill’s sister’s property, just out of Warialda. The ceremony was set before two huge gum trees, standing side by side – fitting - as it looked like they were an old married couple, just standing together in time.
The bridesmaids and Hannah arrived in some fine looking utes, and I’m sure many hours of hard work and love had been put into making them look so amazing. As Hannah arrived, her father helped her out, both shedding a tear as the moment caught up with them.
The old brick kiln and a very cool looking derelict house served as the photography location for the bridal party shots, before whisking Bill and Hannah off to their block of land, where we did some shots just of the newlyweds. The rock cliff provided an amazing, dramatic backdrop for the couple.
Just as we arrived back at the reception location, the skies opened to give us an amazing sunset, with beautiful pinks and oranges.
Back at the reception, the marquee was decorated (all done by family) with beautiful old bottles, lavender plants, lanterns, birdcages and baskets. All with a white and navy theme. Guests were given their own beer cooler, “To have and to hold, and to keep your beer cold.”
The whole day was relaxed and beautifully put together – just like Hannah and Bill.
