Wedding

Kate + Dave's Kimo Estate Wedding, Gundagai NSW by Lachlan Jordan

Lachlan-Jordan-Photography-7488.jpg

I have known Dave for almost 20 years now (were does the time go!). We met in High School and I’m glad that we have still been in contact after all these years. When he asked me if I would be keen to photograph his Wedding I was pretty excited and honoured that not only would I get to see one of my oldest friends get married, but also that I was given the opportunity to capture moments of such a beautiful day that will be forever preserved through my photos. I had met Kate a few times previously to the Wedding and not only is she super lovely but she is also very talented florist and created all the amazing florals herself.

The Wedding took place at the Kimo Estate in Gundagai NSW; a spectacular country Wedding Venue that has featured in numerous Wedding and Travel Blogs and Magazines. The homestead where the ceremony took place has a magnificently kept lawn and in the distance is rolling hills and beautiful country scenery. The reception was held inside The Grain Shed which is over 110 years old. It’s a rustic old shed that transforms into one of the most amazing looking venues I’ve ever been in.

The day was filled with plenty of laughter, tears of joy, beautiful speeches and much dancing. It’s always great to see two people in love, and it was especially great to see one of my oldest friends find such happiness. Both Dave and Kate had such huge smiles the whole day.

Back in January I photographed Courtney and Dans Wedding in the country town of Armidale. It was an intimate celebration that took place in the beautiful Central Park of Armidale, which was surrounded by beautiful hedges and trees.

The ceremony took place in the morning under the rotunda at Central Park, followed by a chilled backyard lunch. Here are a few photos from the day;

2018 Retrospective by Lachlan Jordan

Lachlan-Jordan-Photography-best-of-2018.jpg

I don’t know what it was about 2018 but for me it somehow simultaneously seemed to go by really quick, whilst also feeling like a long year. Maybe that’s because it was very busy year. Lots of changes happened for me throughout 2018. Some more planned than others. I guess the biggest change was leaving Newcastle towards the end of the year and moving to Crescent Head on the Mid-North Coast.

This year I captured more portraits than previous years and I personally feel there has been a lot of growth in that side of my photography. I am thankful for those who have hired me to capture their portrait, or cover their event or wedding throughout 2018. I've met some really wonderful people throughout the year which makes pursuing this career even greater. I hope in 2019 I get to continue meeting wonderful people and grow my business even further.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you enjoy this post looking back on my photography for the year of 2018.

Rhiannon + Ben's Hawks Nest Wedding by Lachlan Jordan

I first met Rhiannon and Ben after Rhiannon got in contact with me via Instagram to a post I had made offering a free Engagement Shoot to the first five people who contacted me. The weather the day of the shoot was horrible, but we had a fun time regardless of the weather. You can see the photos from that shoot on a previous blog post here.

Fast forward four months and the weather could not be better, it was a fucking beautiful day for Rhiannon and Ben’s Wedding! People will say you are crazy to try and organise a Wedding in 10 weeks but these guys pulled it off! I had an absolute blast photographing their Wedding and being a part of their special day.

Here are a few photos of how the day unfolded;

Joey + Daniel Hunter Valley Wedding by Lachlan Jordan

I first met Joey at a Cafe I used to work at. She was a regular customer of the Cafe and I always made sure to look after the regulars. One day I noticed her Engagement ring and enquired about Wedding plans. I told her I also do Photography and gave her one of my cards. About eight months pass and I get a Facebook message from Joey telling me that her and her partner had set a date and wanted to talk wedding photos.

Joey and Daniels Wedding was an intimate day at the Millfield Homestead out in the Hunter Valley. There were lots of personalised touches including her Wedding Dress which was made by both her Mum and Nanna. With about 30 guests of close friends and family it was an emotional but wonderfully happy day and I was glad that I was asked to be a part of it.

Here are a few photos from this wonderful celebration of love.

Wedding Album Investment by Lachlan Jordan

I love print. In this digital age where we seem to store all our images on hard drives or online I feel like the printed image is all the more special. There's nothing like having something tangible which can be held, touched and passed on.

I cannot recommend getting yourself a Wedding Album for your Wedding enough. All albums are custom designed, and unique to each couple.

Beautifully presented, the lay flat Wedding Album is a great way to relive, and share with others your special day.

Sam + Mikey Newcastle Wedding by Lachlan Jordan

If you saw the engagement shoot for these two you will know they have been together for 9 years! Virtually High School sweethearts (Mikey having just finished High School and Sam being in year 12) both are now Registered Nurses and studied together at The University of Newcastle.

They said 'I do' at The Newcastle Club in front of close friends and family and later had their reception at FogHorn Brewhouse in Newcastle. I love the contrast of the old world look of The Newcastle Club against the industrial look of FogHorn. FogHorn being Sam and Mikey's number one choice of venue due to their love of Beer.

I had such a blast photographing their Wedding! A day with lots of love and laughter, amazing venues and lovely people who made me feel like more than just the event photographer, but part of the celebration.

Daena + Jess' Hunter Valley Wedding by Lachlan Jordan

I'm not going to waste time here on the politics of Gay Marriage in Australia, because it will turn into a rant and I would rather focus on the positives in this blog post. Let me just say I think love is love and everyone should have the right to marry whoever they want.

Everything about Daena and Jess' special day was the same as any other wedding, apart from the legal documentation. It was two families coming together to celebrate the love of two human beings. It was an emotional day full of love, smiles, laughter and tears of joy.

Daena and Jess declared their love in front of friends and family reading vows they had both prepared themselves. You could see the happiness and feel the love these two share for each other.

Jeramae + Stacy's Newcastle Wedding by Lachlan Jordan

Jeremae and Stacy had a an intimate wedding at Noahs on the Beach in Newcastle with only a guest list of 25. I had so much fun documenting their Wedding Day filled with romantic and intimate moments evenly matched with fun and spontaneously silly moments. Lots of smiles, and lots of laughs made my job even easier capturing this couple and their family celebrate such a joyous occasion.
