There aren’t enough words in the world to describe how amazing this day was. Nothing was over the top, overdone, and everything was perfect; the vibes, the people, the styling, THE VENDORS. It was a dream. But before I get too much into Maygen & Mitch’s wedding, I’ve got a little story for you…
Let’s rewind back to 2007. I had just moved from a little town in country Queensland called Dalby, to Dubbo when I was in Year 9. Maygen was among some of the first friend I made, and if you had of told me back then that I would one day photograph her wedding I would have laughed in your face! Photography wasn’t even on my radar then, nor was the thought of us all being grown up one day, getting married and starting families of our own. But fast forward to 2022, that’s exactly what we’re all doing. And out of all the photographers these guys could have chosen, they chose me. And it’s one of the highlights of my career so far!
Maygen & Mitch decided to host their wedding by the river on Maygen’s parents property just on the outskirts of Dubbo. Surrounded by beautiful big trees, perfectly kept green grass and a very full river, their married in front of their closest family and friends on a stunning Autumn afternoon. The Petal Project waved her magic flowers throughout the day to create the beautiful floral designs, the bridal party were dolled up by Bronwyn Davis Makeup and Ashleigh Clare’s Hair Studio and Maygen wore a stunning silk gown with sheer overlay by Jane Hill Bridal.
The reception area was under a marquee in the backyard, with the canapés area scattered around the lawn under the stars. Cara from The Event Maison did a fantastic job setting up and coordinating the day from the ceremony right through to dinner and dessert, with a little help from Taylormade Weddings & Events and Adors who supplied some hire items. There was also something unique at their reception, this custom made bar made out of an old tank, featuring this epic custom neon sign by Little Neon Pineapple.
The Webers partied hard into the night with heartfelt speeches, lots of bubbles and a visit from The Hot Potato who was a special surprise for Mitch and Maygen’s guest (if you haven’t heard of these guys, I strongly consider looking them up!). Imagine a group of guys appearing from the darkness, playing party tunes with their marching band instruments, immersing themselves right in the middle of the party just after the speeches! They really got the party started and helped set the vibes for the rest of the reception.
It was such an honour to see an old friend marry her best friend, even more so to be the one to capture it. I’m so excited to share some of my favourites from the day – keep scrolling for all the best bits!
