Brooke & Ben | Dryridge Estate Wedding

Ah the magic of Autumn and the mountains. If you're ever in the Blue Mountains area and considering holding your wedding there I highly recommend you look into the gorgeous Dryridge Estate. Driving through the lush tree lined paths of the majestic Megalong Road was such an adventure and the best part is when you start approaching a clearing and you're met with the most incredible scenes nestled within Megalong Valley (I'll let the pictures to do the talking, hopefully they convey how equally floored and thrilled we were as we entered the breathtaking grounds). 

One of my favourite things to do is go through all our enquiries inbox filled with the most delightful and kindest messages (I read every single one of them, it's honestly the nicest bunch of emails to look at first thing in the morning, giant steaming coffee mug in hand). Last year I came across one that exuded such a happy and an unmistakable warmth that not only radiated through the screen, it quite possibly reached out and felt like it was wrapping me in the world's biggest bear hug. From then on, every one of Brooke's correspondence approached with such brightening cheeriness, it was near impossible to not be crazily excited for her getting hitched to her best friend Ben. Brooke and Ben have this way of making complete strangers feel totally welcome and are two of the most hilarious, smiley-est people ever whose day felt more like a great big party filled with their loved ones, less so a formal wedding (aka hand on heart, my absolute favourite types of weddings). They both adored the outdoors (Ben proposed on top of a mountain in Scotland) and specifically chose the beautiful Dryridge Estate for their Autumnal wedding as they loved the privacy and intimacy of the grounds. I'm genuinely going to miss working on these two beautiful humans' day and I hope you love this collection as much as we have loved these two, their incredibly lovely families and their wonderful day.
