When Kasey contacted us to capture her wedding, we realised that this was going to be a very special event for us. Kasey was essentially family and she just happened to be marrying Sharne’s childhood next door neighbour, Tom. So straight away there was a connection and a desire to do our absolute best to deliver what Kasey had envisioned for capturing her wedding day.
Kasey was very organised and as we sat down to talk to her about what she wanted it became apparent that what she was planning was very much an all family affair. With the majority of vendors including the celebrant and videographer being either a family connection or well known to the couple.
They were planning their wedding to take place at Marybrooke Manor. A vast estate set in the hills around the Dandenong ranges with a heritage listed manor that is steeped in history dating back to the 1900’s.
There was even stories of ghost encounters in some of the rooms with unexplained occurrences and chills that make the hair on the back of your neck stand on end.
Despite this Marybrooke Manor is a lovely estate set amongst the hilly forest that made for some great autumn wedding scenery.
The ceremony was absolutely lovely with personalised declarations that were unique to both Kasey and Tom. Being childhood sweethearts, it was evident that they had grown together as a couple and supported each other throughout the years. Even their beloved dog was present to witness the two declare the love for each other and tie the not.
After getting some gorgeous autumn shots of the couple utilising the unique grounds of Marybrooke Manor. It was time for the reception. And it was evident that Kasey and Tom had a close knit relationship with their friends and family where they could really let their hair down and have a good time, especially on the dance floor.
It was a wonderful privilege to be invited to capture Kasey and Tom’s wedding. Seeing how much they value family and friendship it felt like an honour to be apart of, and we had such a good time capturing their special day.
