As I sit down to finally blog about this beautiful wedding and I can still smell the lavender from Eynesbury Homestead in my mind. Documenting the wedding of Olga and Aaron was incredible! I feel like I say that all the time, and I do and its always the truth. Every wedding is always special and beautiful, for different reasons! I feel like I am apart of something wonderful and powerful, and can't believe that I am invited to do it!
Love is a tremendous thing, to capture behind the lens!
The day started with storm clouds that floated away to reveal bright blue sky's. Olga and Aaron opted to get ready at Tabcorp Park in Melton. It was a great idea, being so close together. With less traveling, Reuben and I were able to take a record number of getting ready shots. The light was gorgeous too, coming from big wall to wall windows.
Olga's mum was unable to attend the wedding, even though she was in Belarus she was very much a big part of her daughter and son in laws day through face-time and Skype. Olga's mother made the bride a delicate shawl, to compliment her lace wedding dress. It stars in so many of the bridal portraits and goes perfectly with the old world homestead feel of the venue.
It was a small intimate wedding with 20 of the couples closest friends and family gathered around them to celebrate their love. The grooms mother, Anne walked Olga down the aisle. It was a emotional moment, I had to stop myself from tearing up so that I could get the photos in focus!
The couple had a unique wedding cake that represented Olga and Aaron's love for traveling with flags from both Australia and Belarus. Some of my favourite moments from the wedding were when the newlyweds danced the night away.
