There aren’t many wedding venues I’ve come across that can say they have a vineyard, a wheat field and their own private access beach, but Terindah Estate in Geelong has all of these things and more! It is set high amongst acres of paddocks with a view out across the vines and the bay, it was an absolute pleasure to photograph here as we really were spoilt for options.
Kathy and Norm were married here in December, they traveled over from Perth where they are currently based to come back to their hometown to have their wedding with family and friends. I didn’t actually get to meet Kathy and Norm until the week prior to their wedding for their engagement session and I find this is always such a great way to get introduced. Kathy and I had many email conversations about the planning of her wedding while Norm, who works in the Navy, was away at sea.
I am always touched when the groom finds it hard to hold back his emotions and Norm struggled to say his vows due to welling up during the ceremony. These two are so in love and I think perfectly matched, they just adore each other and this was obvious. They started their ceremony off with a kiss as Norm proclaims “we haven’t seen each other ALL DAY”. With Norm being in the Navy, this means he travels a lot for his work, which makes their time together all the more special.
