Brown Brothers Winery Wedding

brides crown – Viktoria Novak

I’m not quite sure where to start with this wedding…it was just so darn gorgeous! Lovely people, beautiful day, amazing locations, seriously sooooo much fun. Lauren and Travis were prepared to take a bit of a risk, trusted me a little too much and the results were pretty spectacular. I also had a car full of glitter for weeks and weeks after – but hey, the price we photographers pay.
And one thing you may notice as you scroll through the photos…no bridal party! They kept things simple, uncomplicated and celebrated just the two of them in beautiful style. It also made adventuring just that wee bit easier.

Lauren and Travis were married under the iconic elm trees at Brown Brothers in Milawa and then celebrated the night away across the road in Brown Brothers historic barn. Laurens bouquet and all of the flowers featured at the ceremony and reception were provided by Alice at Floral Harvest in Yarrawonga. So much talent and such gorgeous natives!

That dress, those shoes and THE crown! ENJOY!


Completely in love with the end result… THE ALBUM!
The perfect way to present such a beautiful wedding collection.
You cant hide your images away on a USB – lost in the bottom of the drawer or worse yet…lost forever.
Remember to print your photos!

The cover they choose for their album was such a PERFECT match. Aptly named ‘champagne’…of course!


Isn’t that nicer than ‘just’ a USB?


albury wedding photography – abi and zack

ceremony venue – private property, Jindera
flowers – One day in March, ODIM, Albury
video – Ben Christie
reception – CANVAS, Albury
hair: Uzuri Beauty & Hair
makeup: Glow Holistic Beauty Studio
bridal top: Jillian Franklin Designs, Albury
bridal skirt: The Bridal Atelier

Abigail and Zack were surrounded by their friends and family for an amazing…and a wee bit wet…wedding celebration. Their heartfelt ceremony was held on the property where Abigail grew up, the perfect backdrop for their wedding vows.ย  As Zack and their guests waited for the bride to arrive the heavens opened and we were all treated to a massive thunderstorm. I’m guessing I wasn’t the only one busily checking the radar for a break in the weather. Luckily the rain cleared and held off for the rest of a rather perfect afternoon!
After the ceremony we explored the gorgeous family farm and were spoilt by the choice of locations – shearing sheds, endless paddocks and of course goats. There really should be more goats at weddings – just saying.
The celebrations continued into the evening at Canvas Eatery in the heart of Albury.
Gorgeous native flowers were the perfect compliment to this wedding celebration –ย  the woman responsible for all of the floral awesomness was Kate at ODIM.

Sit back, relax and enjoy this little peek into this joyous and fun filled day…

I’ve known the gorgeous Alice and her family for as long as I’ve been a Hardinge ๐Ÿ˜‰ and she’s been a bridesmaid twice before on weddings I’ve photographed. To say I was excited about being invited to be a part of their day was something of an understatement! And it was so lovely to see so many familiar faces.
Alice and Haydn celebrated their colourful and fun filled wedding at the Splitters Creek Winery, surrounded by their amazing family and friends. The gorgeous florals were provided by Katie at Botanical Muse and were the perfect hit of colour. And that gorgeous sparkly sequined dress! LOVE!
