Danielle + Joe | Colhurst House Wedding

Bridal party walking with barn in background

Danielle and Joe contacted me almost two years before their wedding at Colhurst House. Spending almost two years planning your dream day is no easy feat but also packed into those years was studying and nursing placement for Danielle. It was such a pleasure getting to know them at our initial meeting and hearing all their plans for their intimate wedding. I adore when couples plan their day to be unique to them and in this instance Dani and Joe wanted a small affair with a first look.

If you know me, you know I love a cute pup! While the guys were getting ready in the morning I made fast friends with little Ralph, their fluffy doggo. Ralph happily donned his doggy bowtie and put his best paw forward! The girls got ready at Colhurst House which made getting ready photos a breeze.

Having their ceremony at the historic Colhurst House in Mount Gambier was perfect for the small gathering and provided a private backdrop.  The gardens and building proved to be perfect for their first look photos and after the ceremony we headed off for photos before their reception in the Oak Tree Room at The Barn.

Before the wedding ceremony, they had a first look. Having the first look before their ceremony allowed them to have photos together before the ceremony and dissipated any nerves before the guests arrived! After their gorgeous wedding they jetted off on a honeymoon of a lifetime, spending a few months in Europe! Of course I followed along on their adventures with envy!

Danielle and Joe, thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of your story.
