Beth and Jayden were all about getting married when it was cooler as neither wanted to swelter in their outfits on an overly warm day. So, they chose a mid-May date for their wedding day.

The couple live in South Western Sydney and had already booked their reception at the Old Cheese Factory at Picton, when they went looking for a ceremony/photography space. Wildes Meadow seemed a little too far for guests to travel, but when they saw the garden, it was exactly the vibe they were after – so they booked and secured their date.

With so many ceremony spaces in the garden, choosing where you want to exchange your vows can be difficult, but again as soon as they saw our stunning black arbour with its dramatic weeping cypress in the background, they were sold on the spot.

Beth wanted a wide aisle edged in autumn leaves and scattered with rose petals. The wide aisle was so she could be escorted by both her dads down the aisle to her future husband.

By the time the ceremony started, the skies were stormy and threatening but it stayed dry throughout the ceremony and their photography session.

There was still plenty of autumn colour in the garden which allow the photographer to capture some truly magical images of the bride and groom as well as the entire bridal party and their guests.


They had a big bridal party with 5 attendances each.

Once all the photography was complete Beth Jayden and their guest traveled onto Picton to continue the celebrations.

As always, we wish Beth and Jayden all the best for their future together.
