The Springs at Peats Ridge was the backdrop for Alicia & Ryan’s big day. Bride & Groom prepared at home with their closest and exchanged letters of love which I had the pleasure of photographing. Having experienced enormous amounts of rain the day before, the venue was a little saturated, so the ceremony was moved indoors. Kate Tyler-Webber officiated a beautiful ceremony that included some very cute bridal party members and ultimately lots of tears and smiles. Immediately on becoming husband and wife, Alicia & Ryan each grabbed their mums to join them at the signing table and to witness their commitment officially – a reflection of what I came to know as ‘them’ – inclusive, generous, appreciative and devoted to family. Also it made me burst into tears, sorry guys.
After the ceremony we grabbed our umbrellas and hit the course for some photos. Alicia and Ryan were just naturals in front of the camera which was so much fun to photograph. We madly worked until the weather turned really bad, then hit the reception for a night of speeches, dancing great food and laughter. I watched for night rain all evening but the magic rain shots we were hoping for weren’t to be – Alicia and Ryan still ventured out for some pretty cool night shots which was a lot of fun.
It’s a little hard to describe how special Alicia & Ryan are, proof of which was just how many photos I took of both of them that day. They are both so lovely and so wonderful to be around. Alicia has a smile that truly brightens any space she is in, and Ryan just can’t stop watching her. Thank you so much for including me in a day I won’t soon forget guys x
