Kenilworth Homestead Wedding Photographer

Wowzers talk about a fusion of all things good. Kenilworth Homestead Wedding Photographer, Matt Rowe, and our second shooter, Candi, were in for a treat of cultures, thoughtfulness, beauty and (yes, you guessed it) a whole lot of love!

Sometimes couples comment that their wedding day passes so quickly that elements can blur. This dear friends, is why you need your day accurately and creatively captured. Yes, there is the element of holding those moments and memories dear, but there is also the very real aspect of remembering the moments, the nuances and also having a view to what else was happening with your nearest and dearest. Anisley’s response to her wedding photographs: “there were tears, lots of tears…  every time I watch that slideshow.  I couldn’t have wished for better photographs and photographers.”

Okay… here you go: Kenilworth Homestead at its finest! (Have a little guess at where our gallant groom hails from).

Matt Rowe Photography Matt Rowe Photography Ainsley and Euan’s relationship has not only had to overcome your every day trials however also the battle of Euan moving to the other side of the world, me being his world after leaving all his friends and family…  Immigration/Visa applications, 3 year long process… ” But, it has made us who we are as a couple and formed the basis of a very stable relationship.”

Matt Rowe Photography “To be honest, when I first saw Euan it was – relief, content, elation and everything else slipped away.  After what had been a stressful couple of days it was such a wonderful feeling to have finally reached his side, ready to marry my favourite person.  Throughout the preparations, I remember at one point feeling anxious and mum saying to me “you’ll be alright once you’re up there holding his hand”, and she was right.  Our biggest struggle was that we did so much to make our day fit into other plans so our 16 month engagement was to allow time for our overseas guests to save, travel etc.  If it were up to us, it would have been a simple speedy affair as we couldn’t wait to be married.  In saying that though, we wouldn’t have such beautiful photos/memories, so I wouldn’t change a thing.  I don’t remember a lot from our special words (we wrote these to each other in private and our celebrant read them on the day) or vows however one thing sticks with me and they are Euan’s final words: “I bloody love you darling”.  haha – really sums up our relationship and we say something similar often to each other regularly.  The photo’s Matt has captured of us laughing through the ceremony will coincide with this.”

Matt Rowe Photography Such a beautiful way to celebrate the very real roots of love and commitment. A beautiful collection of love from to sides, two stories and one moment to join them together.

Matt Rowe Photography Oh you two… so much goodness to behold and so much to look forward to as your relationship extends and continues to enrich you both. We can’t wait to hear the stories of your lives and the adventures that take place from this moment forward!

It may not look like it yet, but we are getting our ‘Braveheart’ on in October with this truly lovely couple. Ainsley and Euan survived the clouds on their couple’s Photoshoot to create some drama in their images. The love shines through though, don’t you think?!

couple's photoshoot A couple’s photoshoot is always such fun and we just love the chance to connect with a couple before the ‘big day’. Yes, we do play around with some posing and getting you used to the camera, ultimately, however it is a perfect time to connect with us (your wedding photographer) and feel comfortable… and you get some art to play with.
