I recently had the pleasure of photographing Elizabeth and Justin’s special day at King Parrot Cottages Wedding and Event Centre. These guys were my kind of people.
When I asked them to tell me about their story did they ever; Elizabeth proceeded to write a couple of pages about her love of animals, the outdoors and adventure, especially ones that involve a 4wd and caving. If they didn’t get properly stuck then it wasn’t enough of an adventure in Elizabeth’s eyes.
Only naturally, Justin proposed on a camping trip in the Snowy River National Park.
These two coined the term ‘wedstival’, well at least for me. Anzac weekend down in the Otways at a brilliant little spot called Pennyroyal, just behind Lorne.
The venue of choice was King Parrot Cottages and Event Centre, an amazing property that’s caters perfectly for the natural / country / rustic / party style wedding that can go for days if you want. There’s natural beauty wherever you turn, especially with the views across the valley and down in the camp ground at the bottom of the property, which has some stunning spots for a ceremony. Yep, that right, guests can stay on site.
Donkeys, alpacas, a Shetland pony, local wildlife as well as activities like mini golf, foosball, darts, air hockey, pool table, swimming pool and two spas make this place an incredible facility. And from a photographers perspective there’s just too much to work with. It’s perfectly suited to that natural, candid, real style photography we all love.
I hope enjoy their wedding.
