BRIDGETOWN WEDDING AND ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER VIDEOGRAPHER
Natasha + Monique booked a beautiful farm-stay holiday house in Bridgetown for their accommodation and elopement ceremony venue. Having only seeing it for the first time the day before, they found a beautiful spot by the river to hold their ceremony. To keep it just a simple intimate elopement without the massive wedding celebration, they just had their two gorgeous border collie fur babies and a few of their closest friends to witness. It turned out to be a beautiful winters day in Bridgetown with the sun out and just a few clouds in the sky (so lucky!). Monique put together her own bouquet of flowers and Tash organised most of the catering herself. Instead of traditionally seeing each other for the first time during the wedding ceremony or a “first look”, the girls helped each other get ready and shared their personal vows without anyone around – it was pretty special. After the ceremony we explored the beautiful part of the rivers edge on the same property and then ventured off to the Bridgetown bridge, railway and snuck into a few very picturesque paddocks down the road whilst the sun was setting. There wasn’t any part of the adventure photos that was too much trouble for Natasha + Monique – they were amazing and so much fun! If you’re looking for a photographer in Bridgetown I would love to be your bridgetown wedding photographer or videographer.
Tell me about the location of the wedding – why did you choose it and what does it mean to you?
We chose The Apple (holiday house) in Bridgetown for our elopement because it looked like it was the right vibe with trees whilst still keeping it intimate with only having our witnesses and puppies with us
Tell me about yourselves … How did you meet? What do you do?..How do you spend your days?..What’s important in life?
We met on online and I was hooked on Monique straight away, we met after a few days of talking and I asked Monique to move over to Western Australia within three weeks of being together. and we’ve been inseparable ever since. I am a chef and Monique works in admin. We spend our days together enjoying each others company and laughing so often at each other and taking our dogs to the beach every chance we get. The most important thing in life for us is to be happy, and full of joy and be surrounded by love and our pets.
The proposal? …Tell me a little bit about it…
We had started our trip over to Western Australia and we were in Mount Gambier and we had a day out looking at all the different sinkholes around. after visiting the first one we went to I knew that today would be the day I asked Monique to marry me. we drove to the next sinkhole and I got the ring out of the back of the car and had it in my pocket, the next sinkhole wasn’t as pretty so I kept onto the ring and held off, we drove through a few pine forests and I told Monique we should take a video and some pictures in amongst the trees. we set up our tripod and we spun and hugged and then I dropped one knee and before I could finish asking if she would marry me, she had already said yes.
