Catherine + Luke met at the Bay Hotel in Mornington – it was the end of term for Catherine (a teacher), whilst Luke was enjoying a night out with the boys. Their first encounter saw Catherine picking on Luke and his friend for wearing the same shirt (looking like twins). Lots of laughs were shared, and after arranging a dinner out the following week, they have been together ever since.
For luke, it was Catherine’s fringe, sparkly eyes and red lipstick which got his attention. Catherine had a caring nature and love for family and friends which sat well with Luke, of whom was an ease to chat with had a great sense of humor (although Catherine firstly couldn’t remember what Luke looked like the morning after).
Their wedding day was nothing short of amazingness. With clear blue skies and warm temperatures, we travelled to the middle of nowhere to capture the story of these two sweethearts. Arriving firstly in Baxter, Catherine and her bridesmaids were getting pampered by the lovely ladies at Guava Hair and Body – such a gorgeous property for hair and makeup and to kick start the wedding day with some flutes of champaign and bubbly. After exchanging some heartfelt letters, Catherine got dressed in her stunning gown by Justin Alexander, complimented with Flowers by Julie Kiehn. There was plenty of happy tears as Catherine and her dad had their first exchange all dressed up to the nines.
Travelling around Western Port Bay, we made our way to a private property in Baxter, Victoria where the wedfest of Catherine + Luke would be hosted. Such a gorgeous property full of scenic country views, animals and ambience. The sun was strong as Catherine arrived, and made her way towards Luke in a lovely outdoor ceremony officiated by Jude Hilberts.
Strolling around the country setting alongside Verity from Miss Pickle Photography – it was a joy to capture the candidness of Luke + Catherine. These two are both naturals on camera as you can really feel the love and fondness they share with each other. They both have warm and caring souls which shines bright when you are in their company.
As the sun soon set on a lovely day, Catherine + Luke continued to celebrate long into the night with their closest family and friends, all styled together by Worthy Events.
What a wonderful day. Thank you so much Catherine + Luke for allowing us to be apart of it.
