Ashleigh + Jarryd | River Lakes Wedding





Back in the days before Tinder but after the days of MySpace and MSN (anyone?) there was Facebook messenger which believe it or not was used for something other than massively annoying group conversations! This is where our Romeo (Jarryd) reached out to his Juliet (Ashleigh).. The slight stalkerish tone of his message however was completely forgotten once they locked eyes over their very first and romantic date at Cold Rock.. And after years of dating, Jarryd did what every girl dreams of and booked in a photographer - telling Ash they had won a competition - for the proposal! *Well done Sir!*

Hanging out with these guys and gals all day was the most comfortable I think I have ever been with a bridal party.. Not only was I greeted by the sweetest maids in the morning AND Ashleigh + Jarryd's fur babies.. Jade and Winston.. but there was a mound of confetti ready and waiting for me to photograph! And BOY DID WE USE IT! You'll never see a happier wedding photographer than when he or she has confetti - or food. We even managed to have a five minute dance party and not completely ruin the beaaautiful work done by Megan and Millie.. Ash, I think I speak for everyone when I say guuuuuurllll, you shone bright like a diamond! (I hope you feel as beautiful as you look in all of these photos!)

The girls and I spent the morning trying to distract Ash from the fact that outside storm clouds were threatening to ruin the beautiful outdoor ceremony they had planned but for all our worry, as soon as we pulled into River Lakes Golf Course, the sun came out and we were ready to get this party started!! I've never seen a 8 month pregnant bridesmaid dance quite like Caitlin did.. not to mention the fascinating discovery of the "Aroo Cha Cha" dance Ashleigh's Dad introduced everyone to.. google it now if you haven't already..

A quick thanks to all the fellow vendors, especially the legendary crew at River Lakes for making the whole day so stress free and easy, Jake for the awesome ceremony and Carmen for second shooting! To the ever so fashionable and charming groomsmen, you rocked my socks off and ladies.. we did good.

Ashleigh and Jarryd, all the best for the future and Jarryd, if you look after Ash as well as you do your lawn, there will never be a problem!
