I always love heading down to the Middleton Beach Huts for a wedding, as the nearby scenery and awesome setting that the beach huts provide always make for stunning wedding photography! So when Lauren and Marty asked me to be their wedding photographer for the day, I was very excited to be a part of their day! Another neat part of their day was the fact that their DJ had suggested using his private land up in the hills for photos instead of the usual heading down to the beach, so we got to use some awesome gumtrees as a backdrop instead.
After having set up my photo booth in preparation for Lauren and Marty’s reception, I sauntered over to the Beach Huts that Lauren and Marty were getting ready in. They were using two separate huts adjacent to one another, so it was easy enough to flit in between places of preparation which was great.
The air surrounding Lauren and Marty was very laid back, and easy going, with little to ruffle feathers and only the slightest showing of nerves from Marty, the groom 🙂 As soon as he donned his crows scarf though, and mentions of his hero, Taylor Walker, it soon vanished 🙂
Middleton Beach Huts Wedding Ceremony
It was a super sunny day, and unfortunately there’s little shade for the congregation on the grassy area of the Middleton Beach Huts, so it made it tricky to mitigate the harsh shadows and highlights when taking photos, but it was certainly a love filled ceremony and the weather was really nothing to complain about!
After the group photos, we began our glamour photos session by walking around the grounds together with the bridal party, making use of the curated gardens and unique vibe the venue provides. We then hopped in the car for a bit of a drive to the aforementioned private property of their DJ. It happened to be an old winery estate, filled with rolling hills and stunning gum trees, which I loved taking photos of! On the way back we stopped off at the beach for a few shots using the sunset 🙂
Middleton Beach Huts Wedding Reception
Finally, with the wedding reception on site, all the guests were already packed into the restaurant when we arrived back, leaving little room to move! It was a great atmosphere, with guests spilling out into the outside areas, making use of the balmy weather. The dance floor was packed all night, and I had a blast! 🙂
Thanks so much to Lauren and Marty for having me as your wedding photographer! Hope you love your photos.
