After 30 years of photographing weddings, it is very rare for me to come across a wedding venue that I haven’t photographed before especially when it is situated up here in our stunning Blue Mountains and surrounds. So how excited I was to be capturing a wedding at Collits’ Inn for the very first time. This place is such a rustic charmer and surrounded by absolute gorgeous countryside being situated in the historic town of Hartley.
Krystal and Kane were married at St Peter’s Anglican Church, Mt Victoria. Before heading back to Collits’ Inn for the reception, we stopped at Pulpit Rock which is a very fitting name for the lookout. One of the great pleasures of living in The Blue Mountains and being a local wedding photographer up here is the spectacular lookouts we can use at our leisure for a jaw dropping backdrops. During the shoot there, a very tame currawong came and perched itself close by on the ‘rock pulpit’ and made for a wonderful ‘spectator’ in the photo.
I had a total ball capturing Krystal and Kane’s wedding. Adding to the excitement was an amazing storm cell that surrounded us later in the afternoon. Fortunately it didn’t downpour on us but wow, what an amazing sunset we had. The dappled sunset colours on the storm clouds was just phenomenal. I had never seen anything like it before.
I hope you enjoy viewing the selection of images shown below from the day as much as I enjoyed capturing them. Thank you Krystal and Kane for giving me the honour of photographing your very special day.
