I met Brooke and Leon only two weeks ago when we got together to capture some beautiful shots for their pre wedding shoot. They had decided on a small wedding with only the closest of family and friends attending. The lush green garden of the Mercure Resort in the Hunter Valley was the backdrop for the ceremony and was also their reception spot too. The ceremony was made more special by the fact that Leon’s mother was the celebrant. After some family shots we stayed at the Mercure Resort for Brooke and Leon’s photos. We covered a lot of ground in a short space of time because there was only the two of them in the bridal party. Apparently there is also another member in this love story and you will see below she was included in the photos in her bright blue outfit. One request that Brooke had was a “Friends” photo. You know the one with all of them in front of the fountain with a couch? Well after finding some willing muscle we managed to get a couch outside to the fountain for some “Friends” inspired photos.
