Maryanne + Scott – Cruden Farm, elegance and beauty
Wedding days offer many shooting opportunities and Maryanne + Scott’s was no different. The weather during the week leading up to the wedding was wet and at times sunny. It was hard to get a handle on what weather we would experience on the wedding day and in typical Melbourne style the morning was rain soaked whilst the afternoon was filled with the most glorious sun light. I kept thinking to myself how lucky are we?! After many discussions about locations and scouting locations with Maryanne + Scott, Maryanne, had the inspired idea to look at Cruden Farm in Langwarrin and the ground work was set for a wedding full of elegance and beauty.
Cruden Farm – Elegance personified
Cruden Farm is the former residence of the late Dame Elisabeth Murdoch and the grounds were an absolute gift and delight. In fact a photographers dream location. Can I just say, I wanted to spend the whole day at Cruden Farm and keep shooting. It was simply marvellous! The photo’s produced with Maryanne + Scott are the result of having a great couple who were easy to work with. As I always say, the more I understand what is important to you about your photo’s the better the end result will be, good communication is so important.
So, what else makes for a special day? We already has the palatial grounds, the lake, the stables and who can forget the driveway with the most incredible row of trees I have seen. Well for me the other element that makes a wedding day is the styling and flowers. I feel this was a day where teamwork really came into play. The flowers by Shelly at Melbourne Bridal Rose and Hair & Make-up by Megan at Coastal Hair & Make-up really meant that everything came together beautifully.
Cruden Farm and then the reception at the International In Brighton continued the theme of restrained elegance that was present through out the day. So far this wedding season the bar has been set pretty high. I truly am looking forward to sharing more wonderful weddings like this year.
