“It’s guts and love and glory,
One mortal’s chance at fame,
His legacy is rodeo,
And cowboy is his name.”- Baxter Black
With it’s wonderful rustic charm, Windy Creek Estate nestles among the Australian bush, a relaxing place to while away any balmy afternoon. Not the easiest place to find among the many ‘No Through’ roads the Swan Valley has to offer, but I could easily become accustomed to the journey. The company was as good as the wine Windy Creek has to offer as we mingled among guests, waiting for the arrival of our bride Monique.
The ceremony was relaxed and intimate if having 200 well wishers could ever be intimate and while the guests waited for the arrival of the bride on her horse, I watched the groom. He played his part well along with the groomsmen, holding up their table tennis come score cards as the bridesmaids made their way down the track, but you could see in his face, it was his bride he was waiting for.
The vows were sincere, and along with other guests we held our breath as Rod and Monique stood holding hands, palms up so we could see the gift they were giving. “These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and vibrant with love, that are holding yours on our wedding day and I promise to love you all the days of my life.” It was then on to Chapel Farm for the reception, the setting providing the perfect canvas for Rodeo meets Princess, even down to the cake. So without further ado, may I introduce you to Mr and Mrs Rod Caddies. Thank you so much for allowing me to be part of your day and to meet your wonderful friends and family.
I very much look forward to seeing the professional images from Perth Photographer Prophoto.
