Lizzy C Photography, Melbourne Photographer

Kate + Ben’s Werribee Mansion & Shadowfax Winery Wedding

When I first stepped into Kate and Ben’s home on the day of their wedding, I understood exactly why they’d chosen to have their wedding ceremony on the staircase at the Werribee Mansion. It was of a style and period they obviously enjoyed. Their home, a gorgeous little cottage (midst renovations), was decorated lovingly with gorgeous antique furniture and bits and pieces from an bygone era. In contrast to the formal splendour that the mansion provided, Kate and Ben also wanted a relaxed wedding to fit with their personalities. Hence, post-ceremony, the celebrations kicked on, beginning with drinks at Shadowfax Winery. The couple arrived and leapt straight into their wedding dance, setting the tone for the rest of the night!

Kate and Ben, it was such a fun day and a pleasure to be a part of such a wonderful and happy occasion. Thank you for including us and for the lovely words you shared.

“Lizzy was extremely professional and she made us feel really comfortable throughout the day. We hardly noticed her presence during the ceremony or reception, which highlights how great she is as a photographer because she was not invasive and this made our day more relaxed. During our photo shoots Lizzy again displayed her creativity and ability to work with difficult lighting. We were very happy with Lizzy and would highly recommend her.”
