Jeffrey & Victoria

So I actually posted these images a few days ago from Victoria and Jeff’s wedding at the amazing Chateau Yering, Varra Yalley. I was just trying to think of what I could write to accompany the photos, Just so you could have a better glimps into the type of kind and genuine people Vic and Jeff are. But I’m really bad with words, I just take pretty pictures, so I thought I might share a little story from their day that I thought was really special.

The day was obviously amazing, but it was the family and friends who had flown from all over the globe to be there for Victoria and Jeff that made the day really special and meaningful to the couple.

Unfortunately Victoria had found out the day before the wedding that one of her brothers wouldn’t be able to make it to the venue until midnight the night of the wedding! The helicopter that was supposed to fly him in had some issues and wasn’t able to pick him up when it was originally scheduled to.

It obviously meant a lot to Victoria to have all her family there, and she was pretty upset that her brother wouldn’t be there on her special day. It also meant that he wouldn’t be in any of the family photos.

SO I suggested that I could do some family photos early the following morning before I caught my flight back home… Vicotria said yes and in all honesty I expected to get there the next morning and find that everyone still in bed hungover from the night before. BUT was completely shocked to see them all sitting there redressed in there wedding outfits waiting for me to take their family photos!! Now thats some serious family love right there!

We had an amazing time on the weekend celebrating a friend’s 40th birthday. It was such a great time spent with the kids and exploring Broken River, searching for platypus and turtles as well as going for bush walks (or actually sitting with other mums while the husbands took the kids on a bushwalk)

There was no phone reception and it turned out to be one of the best things! It was so refreshing not getting caught up in what was happening elsewhere, and just really enjoying the time with the other families.

Can’t wait to do it again!

moments after the below photo was taken Cameron had her first bike accident! and ended up with a grazed chin and upper lip. She had a little cry but was straight back up on her bike again like a trooper!
