Fully involved in all aspects of their wedding, Jay & Brooke ensured all their dreams came together seamlessly before joining their respective families to pamper and prepare themselves. Loving the style and location of their chosen accommodation (with room for family & friends to also stay), Jay & Brooke chose to have "First Look" photos taken at the beautiful Emerald Lodge prior to their ceremony.
Before "Getting Hitched", both Jay & Brooke made their respective entrances upon our "Big Red Truck", each with their parents aboard with them. This gave them each a moment with their parents to embrace the moment of arriving at their wedding and seeing their guests awaiting their marriage, not to mention making a distinctive arrival.
An intimate ceremony was conducted by Amanda Loftus, before the new Mr & Mrs were cheered and embraced by their congregation and pretty rice paper hearts fluttered all over them.
As the sun set, photos were captured out in our back paddock, beneath the gorgeous sky and amongst the horses too. Jay & Brooke enjoyed this time together before returning to their celebrations beneath the rustic roof of the Ringers Rest barn.
It was an honour to be an integral part of Jay & Brooke's celebrations and to work in with them and their family & friends to help bring their dream to reality.
Thank you Jay & Brooke, for choosing to host your wedding with us!
