On Sunday last week we were back up at beautiful Port Stephens for an Anchorage wedding. A meeting of chance brought these two together as Joel & Maddi met at a Pirate party in Canberra while he was on his travels from Canada. Their love was instant and he knew she was the girl for him from the moment they first met.
Kerryn Tippett held a beautiful early ceremony on the lush green lawns of the Anchorage in front of family & friends that travelled from near and far. Instead of photos straight after the ceremony it was straight into a lunch reception. Joel & Maddi had a fabulous idea that I’ve never seen before at their reception. There was seating for Joel & Maddi at each table so they could move around for each course and chat to everyone on the day. What a perfect idea for a smaller wedding! Towards the end of reception we had some time to sneak out for some photos, along with Corey & Sam from Hunter Valley Video we captured some beautiful moments in the soft afternoon sunlight.
Joel & Maddi what can I say it was a wonderful day and I’m so happy that we were included in your beautiful celebrations. Enjoy your sneak peek and I can’t wait to share the rest with you. Bella x
