You may remember James and Alyssia from their couples portrait a few weeks ago (which you can view here) and today we’re so excited to share their romantic summer wedding that took place at Gledswood Homestead and Winery, a gorgeous country location in Sydney’s South West.
This charming, historical location provided a perfect backdrop for their wedding day which began with an outdoor ceremony on Gledswood’s lakeside lawn. Guests were seated on rustic wooden benches to witness Alyssia and James share their vows underneath the arbor, draped in delicate, white chiffon. Their family and friends congratulated them with a shower of bubbles – we love it when our couples use confetti or bubbles as it always provides us with lots of opportunity for fun shots!
While their guests mingled at Gledswood Wine Bar, we walked through the grounds with Alyssia, James and their bridal party exploring the gorgeous country locations that surrounded the historic homestead. Gledswood has some lovely weathered wooden fences, sandstone paths and manicured gardens that made it easy to find photographic inspiration.
James and Alyssia joined their guests inside for the reception where the restaurant was decorated in an elegant white decor, complete with strings of lights and soft pink details. The brand new Mr and Mrs danced their first dance shortly after they entered the reception in what was probably the most romantic part of the day (apart from the ceremony of course)! Of course, there was plenty more dancing later in the evening and everyone had a blast on the dance-floor.
If love is indeed in the air, it was floating all-around the Gledswood homestead on the day of Alyssia and James’ nuptials. We wish them all the best and hope they stay happy in love for a long, long time.
