Winter in Bowral can be cold but on a clear day it’s a stunning time of year to get married – you just need to rug up! Thankfully Danielle & Luke had great weather for their beautiful Southern Highlands winter wedding 🙂
Luke and the boys got ready at Peppers Craigieburn and looked very sharp in their blue suits. Danielle & the girls were also at Peppers and had the balcony room on the second floor.
There were lots of laughs from Danielle and her sisters, and some tears from Mum and especially Dad seeing Danielle in her wedding dress for the first time. The tie Danielle gave him with such a sweet message embroidered on it was a guaranteed tear jerker.
The ceremony was held at St Michael’s Catholic Church in Mittagong – an old and beautiful looking church with plenty of space and a bright light interior. There were definitely a few nerves before the start of the ceremony but Danielle & Luke were soon married and pretty stoked when walking back down the aisle as husband & wife.
We had ample time for mingling outside the church and this is a great chance to get some candid photos with your guests so I highly recommend allowing time in the schedule for this and not rushing off too soon.
For the bridal party photos we headed to nearby Lake Alexandra and also an open grass field before arriving at Peppers Craigieburn. Peppers is one my favourite wedding venues in the Southern Highlands – it has lovely formal gardens, the golf course, and several old buildings including the main manor house entrance, which all make for lots of different photo locations.
Check out the photo highlights below – I love how the bridal party had such a fun time during the photos and this always makes it easy for me to capture plenty of smiles and some great candid shots. The grass field photos are fantastic and we used the soft winter light to perfection 🙂
The reception room at Peppers looked amazing – long tables with seating for around 150 guests and beautiful details & flowers. Check out the awesome chairs for Danielle & Luke too.
It was a great night with touching speeches and lots of fun dancing. We even had time for some night shots too, so all in all an awesome day!
