Julia and Ged’s Emu Bottom Homestead Wedding

Julia and Ged’s Emu Bottom Wedding

It’s not every day we get to shoot a wedding where the groomsmen rock bright blue suits and the bride willingly sports a set of Groucho glasses. But that’s exactly what happened at Julia and Ged’s adorable wedding at the Emu Bottom Homestead in Sunbury. The vintage-inspired affair was relaxed and rustic — not to mention pure fun.

Julia was nervous when she arrived at Emu Bottom, but as soon as she saw her sister and four bridesmaids — all decked out in fashionable pink frocks — the fear seemed to melt away. Ged’s aunty Mary Anne Egan officiated, and the ceremony was full of sweet stories about how the couple met.

Julia scoured wedding blogs like Polka Dot Bride and Style Me Pretty for wedding-planning inspiration, and there were DIY touches and a subtle book theme throughout (Julia’s a bit of a bookworm). “I worked really hard and stressed a lot coming up to the wedding but it all came together in the most amazing way,” she told us after the big day. “We had some really great family and friends helping us and everyone seemed to have had a great time. Ged and I have talked about nothing else since! I think everything we feel for each other came out in the wedding, making it just a huge celebration with a great feeling.” We couldn’t agree more.

We had a blast working with Julia and Ged, and we’re so happy they felt the same way. Julia had this to say: “They made everything so easy for everyone. They were super-organised (especially with the family photos — this helped immensely!) and just genuinely excited and enthused about the day. I never felt like any of the shots were staged and from the little I have already seen, they’ve captured exactly what I wanted: relaxed, candid, and beautiful photos. I would be so thrilled to recommend Lizzy to everyone I know because I know that they would always be in great hands!”

    Lizzy,

    Once again, thank you so much to you and Clara for your hard work on the day. I can’t explain how happy these photos make me feel! They are a prefect representation of the day, and just so beautiful. My heart really is full looking at them. To think we had such little time to take these and they turned out perfectly – well done!

    Amazing. Really looking forward to our next meeting Lizzy 🙂
