Mary and Dan’s epic Jewish wedding in Gundagai rained from the moment we arrived on the property until the moment we left. But it was so much fun!
Mary and Daniel got married the day before New Year’s Eve at their parents’ rural property in Gundagai.
They had their ceremony in the back garden, which was great having everything all in one venue. They chose the family property because Mary had always dreamed of getting married on the family farm. And they could have the place for the whole weekend.
It was a beautiful country wedding despite the rain. I love shooting farm weddings because the surroundings are always completely stunning. Mary and Dan had a marquee set up next to the main house for dinner. And another clear marquis for the dancing.
The wedding itself was going to be on the lawn but due to the rain. It took place under the marquee next to the house. The lighting for the ceremony was great because the roof was a clear plastic.
The most fun part of the day was when it bucketed down and everyone got soaked. Because it gave the day a lighthearted mood. It was so hot and humid. Especially during the Jewish dancing and as a result the rain was such a relief.
Mary and Daniel met at work. And have been together for about five years. They got in touch with us through friends, so word of mouth is best advertising right!
They said they wanted fun photographers and we thought it was awesome that they were so relaxed.
The best piece of advice they could give clearly is to have a plan B for rain but if it does rain trust your photographer!
The best compliment we received. Was when Mary said she felt her wedding was ruined by the rain. But when she saw our pictures her impression of the day totally changed from a negative to a positive one.
So it was great to shoot a Jewish wedding in Gundagai!
