Vanessa & Sam | Meribee | South Coast Wedding
Vanessa and Sam were married at Meribee on the beautiful South Coast of NSW. Meribee is a little gem on the south coast that features a historic 1850s farmhouse, accommodation and curated gardens. There is no need to go offsite as the venue is amazing and provided everything you would want and need.
Vanessa and Sam were happy to go with the flow which gave the wedding a nice relaxing feel. Vanessa looked stunning in her Karen Willis Holmes dress and both were very easy to photograph.
As with most weddings I met up with the groom and groomsmen for photos before meeting up with Vanessa in the farmhouse.
With everything being in the one place it made life a lot easier to get around and organise. So much work has gone into Meribee and each time I go back there something has been added and improved.
The ceremony was held outside in a beautiful garden setting and thankfully the rain stayed away. With the family photos taken, the wedding party and I ventured around the property for some location photos. I always photograph the wedding party first and then the bride and groom alone.
The reception had a nice rustic feel with views of the gardens. Dusk is always my favourite time of the day and Meribee has a special feel about it at dusk. The outdoor dance floor was lit up, providing a nice country ambience.
A lot of people were dancing and Vanessa’s dad sang and entertained the guests with his amazing voice.
We ended the night with some night photographs making use of the beautiful outdoor lighting and trees. It was a great way to finish what was a great wedding.
