So what’s it like to shoot a wedding at the venue where you were married? When Amanda and Darrell asked me to document their wedding at High Bullen Hotel Golf and Country Club just over a year after my own wedding there they gave me the opportunity to find out!
That said, if I’m honest the venue is always a secondary consideration for me when preparing for a wedding. I’ve always felt weddings are about people, their relationships and the celebration of them in all their uniqueness, but I was curious to see how it felt going back to High Bullen which obviously held such emotional significance to me personally.
It was wonderful to be back there but I didn’t dwell on it for long as this was Amanda and Darrell’s day and they’d put their faith in me to tell their story and I don’t believe you can do that authentically unless you give all of yourself to the task in hand. There were so many highlights and beautiful moments but photographing the intimate bond between Amanda and Darrell and the relationships between them and their family and friends became the story I chased throughout the day. We did also make some time to shoot some portraits which highlighted what a beautiful venue High Bullen is to get married at.
Thank you so much to Amanda and Darrell for being such incredible clients and trusting me to tell your story. Below is the lovely thank you note they left for me when they collected their album from the studio.
We just wanted to say a massive thank you for all of our amazing wedding photos. We can’t tell you how many compliments we’ve had on how well you captured every moment of our day. Thank you so much for all your hard work. We are both so excited to see our album and show it off to our friends and family. Thank you once again
Amanda and Darrell
