O’Reilly’s Vineyard Wedding

Once again trying to blog a few weddings for the start of the year. This one was shot at O’Reilly’s Vineyard nestled it the Canungra Valley. There’s always such a special feel to these country weddings and even the drive out there had me feeling excited about the day. There was a few storm clouds coming over from Lamington National Park that threatened to ruin the ceremony but  Lauren and Ivan went ahead with their outdoor ceremony anyway. After a few quick portraits the storm rolled in and the hail and rain begun . Yes, it was pretty crazy for a while but these guys just rolled with it. We were able to head back out to grab some more shots around the grounds of the winery before the reception which was decked out with some sweet rustic styling.

One of my favourite parts of a wedding is listening to and shooting the speeches especially when they are heartfelt and genuine, Ivan’s speech was up there with the best of them.

Looking forward to shooting out here again sometime, hopefully without the hail storm. Hope you like the pics!
