Whitney & Rohan married in the historic town of Berrima, nestled in the lovely Southern Highlands, NSW.  Their romantic garden themed wedding had a palette of whites and neutrals – with accents in blush and muted caramels that played off the sandstone at Saint Francis Xavier, Berrima, and the warm wooden ceilings of Bendooley Estate’s Book Barn.

Whitney looked like royalty with her lace sleeve Abbey Bridal and Rohan channelling James Bond feel, with his black ensemble from Suit Supply.

The bridal party enjoyed their espresso martinis while their guests were greeted by delicious canapés of oysters & rosé as they looked over the lake of Bendooley.

Photos of the bridal party were taken against the many rolling hills, vineyards, pine trees and vine-draped walls of this phenomenal property. As the sun set the guests made their way back to the book barn reception, eagerly waiting for the bridal partys arrival while they finished up sunset photos by the lake.

The Book Barn which has vintage books along the walls was transformed by the team at Visually Creative into a lush garden hide-away. Elevated centre-pieces of rambling flowers caught your eye as you entered the room with candles scattered amongst vases overflowing with flowers. Roses were also used, in loving memory of Whitney’s Nanna Rose.

Guests were treated with Bendooley’s signature share-plates (this is the option we recommend), music by XYDJ and spoiled by a late-night dessert station in-between dancing. What a day!

Hilary & Nicola were so much fun to work with! They made taking wedding photos easy and natural. We loved how organised they were: the whole process right from the first meeting to the big day was smooth and stress-free. They listened to what we wanted and were able to capture the most amazing photos! They also provided advice about accommodation options for our wedding and other vendors, which we were very thankful for. We had so many guests comment on how friendly and fun they were. We love looking at our wedding photos and we couldn’t recommend them more!
