When I first met Courtney she had popped in for an afternoon trial. She was greeted with a big welcome hug (a standard upon any greeting of mine - i just can't help it!) where she sat down and sunk back into her chair with a sense of calm, 'alright, lets do this'. We chatted about the style of her wedding, the location and how she wanted to feel for her long awaited day - while we talked about everything from beauty to life and everything in between, it seemingly became evident that she was making me feel even more at home in my own home! This notion of ease transcended to the morning of her wedding day where we instantly felt like part of the family as we babbled with cups of tea in one hand and hairspray in the other on the beautiful grounds of Wonganella Estate Winery; it was a morning of pure delight. 

Nothing could have been more beautiful. Teresa from Muse Photography arrived just as we were finishing the girls final hair and makeup touchups and they carried on their morning with tears and giggles over gifts of treasured love and beautiful friendships. 

This gallery truly captures the essence of Courtney and James, a sweet, soft and gentle nature that oozes with beauty and honesty on all levels. Being able to be a part of this magical day was just the greatest, thank you.
