Tanya & Ryan | Wedding | Chateau Dore

"Nick was able to photograph our day superbly and his ability to capture the essence of our day was nothing short of amazing. He was there with us every step of the way and able to capture the story from start to finish and we were able to reflect upon our day afterwards with so many happy memories".

- Tanya & Ryan

My excitement leading up to Tanya and Ryan's wedding was next level, everything had my engines running, from the amazing vineyard at Chateau Dore to Tanya's beautiful dress by Grave Loves Lace, their style is definitely on point and my hat goes off to them!

On the day we were greeted with beautiful summer weather, from partly cloudy skies to clear, almost no wind and it wasn't too hot either (yay!). I started off at the girls place, they hired a cute little house in the heart of Bendigo, I was only there for a short time to capture a glimpse into their morning, Tanya put her dress on after I left and we arranged to meet at Rosalind Park for a few family photos after I finished at the boys. The boys were getting ready at a beautiful location just down the street from the girls, it was a giant red brick building with tons of character. We kept it simple, a few shenanigans inside before walking down to the Bendigo Art Gallery.

Chateau Dore is a beautiful wedding venue just outside Bendigo in Mandurang, why Tanya and Ryan chose to have their wedding there is as clear as day, it's gorgeous! After their main course we headed outside to utilise the soft light at sunset, we strolled through the vineyard and found a few other great spots around the venue. Well I think that's enough from me for now, I'll let the photos do the rest of the talking. Thank you for having me Tanya and Ryan, it was an honour.
