Tell me about the location of the wedding – why did you choose it and what does it mean to you?
Dalmore Farm is a beautiful rural location that resonates with both Steven and I. I grew up on our family farm in Kojonup which is a rural town not far from Dalmore Farm, and have a great love for the land and nature. Steven grew up in Leschenault on a large bush block. We both love the countryside, travelling to remote locations and enjoying the simple things in life, which is why when we walked into Dalmore Farm we knew we had the perfect location for both our ceremony and reception space for our special day. The 360 degree views from the hill in which the ceremony will take place are breathtaking, and the old repurposed shearing shed brings a great deal of character to the day.
How did you find me? Why did you pick me to capture your wedding day?
Instagram. I instantly enjoyed watching a number of your short films on your Instagram and then went to the longer films on your website and couldn’t find one in which I didn’t link how you had structured the film and really showed the emotions of the day.
Tell me about yourselves … How did you meet? What do you do?..How do you spend your days?..What’s important in life?
Steven and I met through a mutual best friend (Denise) back in 2016 and started speaking from there. A few anonymous bunches of flowers were delivered to my work, and was followed up with another to my house which was when the penny finally dropped for me as to whom they were from. We went to the cricket together as an official first date and haven’t looked back since. We both love to travel and go camping. We enjoy the outdoors, are passionate our various sporting teams and spending time with our family & friends.
The proposal? …Tell me a little bit about it…
We went on a 5 week driving trip up to the Kimberley. The start of the trip we traveled with friends, and after 2 weeks we set out on our own to tackle the Gibb River Road before meeting up with friends again in Kununurra. We arrived at Windjana Gorge (Tunnel Creek) on the Gibb River, set up camp, walked the Gorge before calling it a night ready for an early morning wake up to see the sights of Tunnel Creek. We arrived at Tunnel Creek the next morning bright and early to try and beat the tourist buses, and walked into the opening of Tunnel creek (a tunnel that is full of fresh water crocodiles). I was terrified of finding a crocodile and probably more terrified of not finding one as that means they are under water which we needed to wade through. I thought Steven was terrified of this too, however it soon became known that he was more terrified of what he was about to do. We conquered our first crocodile, and walked onto a nice sandbar just in front of the opening of the tunnel, and Steven placed the gopro on a rock and called me other to him. I doubted him straight away as I thought he was 100% setting me up, by making me walk towards a croc. I slowly made my way over doubting each step, then before I knew it Steven was down on one knee asking me to marry him. Tears followed, joy followed and a definite yes followed. We walked the entire tunnel and had the moment all to ourselves.
