Sometimes everything just falls into place.
Three weeks ago I received a call from the incredibly talented stylist Victoria Cameron asking if I was available to help her clients Verena and Stefan who, due to issues with an unscrupulous photographer, needed to find a rather more reliable professional for their big day. It's always heartbreaking and frustrating to hear of couples who are placed in such an uncomfortable situation when they are planning the happiest day of their life, so I was delighted to confirm that I was available.
I then found out that their wedding would be held at the Berkelouw Book Barn on the beautiful Bendooley Estate in Berrima. It's a space that's been at the top of my wedding venue wish list since it flung open its rustic doors to weddings at the start of the year, so I was overjoyed to be finally heading there. Amy, however, already had plans but the amazing Elise Hassey was available to journey down to the Southern Highlands with me.
Add some perfect spring weather, Victoria's styling magic and, of course, a super gorgeous couple in Verena and Stefan, and it really couldn't have got much better.
