So let me just tell you how fabulous Australia is. The weather is great, towns are charming, everything is in English (which is convenient while in a foreign country, I admit), there are surfers everywhere, the landscape amazing, and crazy-unusual wildlife was kept to a minimum. But what really makes Australia amazing are the people. Some of the most beautiful and genuine (inside and out!) people live in this amazing country… and I think I met all of them at Nichole and Giles’ wedding. I met Nichole about two years ago at her sister’s wedding that took place in Paris. From the first e-mails we exchanged, I knew she was planning an exquisite wedding and I was so very thrilled to be a part of it!

Their wedding was held in the Hunter Valley. For those of you who don’t know, the Hunter Valley is one of the oldest wine regions in Australia. Vineyards. Everywhere. Their wine is delicious and the scenery is to die for. Truly beautiful, especially in Australia’s Autumn time. The ceremony took place at Lovedale Chapel, a charming little wedding chapel on a hill. Their closest friends and family were there to help them celebrate, when they headed over to Wandin Valley Estate & Winery, which was formerly an old Cricket pavilion! Lawn games were played during cocktail hour on the Cricket court and the party began inside just at sunset.

There was truly not one detail that was left out. Everything from the food, the guests, the decorations, the setting, the COUPLE! It was such an amazing day. Spending several days with Nichole and Giles and their families made me see how loved they are by everyone. I was so happy and honored to be celebrating with them – two incredible souls – from behind my camera 🙂 Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Caldersmith!
