On a perfect spring day in April, I had the pleasure of capturing Claire and Grant’s wedding day at the picturesque Saint Leonards Vineyard in Wahgunyah. Situated in Rutherglen, North-East Victoria’s wine region and right on the banks of the Murray River, Saints Leonards was the perfect fit for Claire and Grants day surrounded by their closest family & friends. It was evident how much family and friends mean to Claire and Grant, from mingling with their guests in the vineyard to cutting the cheese wheel cake straight after the ceremony in the vines so that all were involved. Thank you for allowing me to capture your beautiful day.
Thank you to Claire and Grant for sharing some words about their day:
Grant and I fell in love with the surroundings of the Murray River and the greater Corowa/Rutherglen area. Having visited a number of family members over the years, it seemed to be the perfect location for our special day.
We always liked the idea of having a wedding at a vineyard as it allows for convenience of ceremony, reception and beautiful photos all in the one location. The food and wine is a definite plus too. St Leonards Vineyard ticked all the boxes, however we just needed the perfect photographer to capture our day.
As we live in Melbourne, initially word of mouth was how we stumbled across Jason’s website. We were taken aback by the beauty of his photos, however it was when we inquired further that we knew he would be the perfect photographer for us on the day. His easy going nature and professionalism over the phone made us feel comfortable and we instantly felt we were making the right decision.
Jason helped to guided us through our day from the first brush of makeup to our first dance. He helped us build a structure that ran smoothly and gave us more than enough time to capture our special moments. Even a beautiful sunset shoot that we didn’t think would be possible.
Leading up the big day, Jason insisted he wanted to attend the rehearsal. His professionalism shone through as he helped guide the venue move the ceremony location so slightly to ensure perfect lighting and a natural backdrop.
On the day, Jason made us feel so comfortable and relaxed we really didn’t feel like we were being photographed at all. He took the time to show us the photos as he was working which gave us an insight into the talent he had.
Upon receiving the photos on the week he promised, we were blown away by what he had captured. A number of our family and friends commented on how beautiful the photography was and the manner in which Jason conducted himself at our wedding.
Thank you Jason for all your hard work, we could not be any happier with the end result.
