Nadia and Joy held their duel ceremony wedding on a Tuesday at the beginning of December – which might seem out of the ordinary but it worked out beautifully for holding a GlenEwin Estate Gatehouse Wedding!
Being a Tuesday meant that the lower Pulpshed wedding venue wasn’t being used by another wedding so we got to use both spots for as many photos as we wanted. Also being a lunch time wedding, Nadia and Joy got to make the most of everything the Glen Ewin Estate has to offer!
Baha’i Wedding Ceremony
At the beginning of the day, Nadia and Joy held a religious Baha’i wedding ceremony from the comfort of their own home while making use of my livestream service which allowed a multitude of guests from around the world to tune in all day.
As is traditional with Baha’i wedding ceremonies, the service was a simple affair, with readings from family and friends and a signing of marriage documents over the household’s dining table after which I whisked myself off to GlenEwin Estate to set up the photobooth for their lunchtime reception and video equipment to record their GlenEwin Estate Gatehouse Wedding Ceremony.
GlenEwin Estate Gatehouse Wedding Ceremony
GlenEwin Estate Gatehouse Wedding ceremonies usually take place on a grassy area overlooking a man made pond in front of the main reception area just to the left of the entrance to the Estate. The space is surrounded on all sides by earth, greenery and makes for an intimate space for any wedding ceremony.
Nadia and Joy’s legal ceremony had already taken place during their Baha’i ceremony, so they had no need to sign any documents after this ceremony, but they still made the most of the moment by reciting heartfelt vows to one another and had a bit of fun with inserting fun little caveats to each other’s ‘i do’s’.
GlenEwin Estate Gatehouse Wedding Reception
Directly after their second ceremony, we took a few family group shots and made use of some of the greenery around for some glamour shots before heading in for their lunchtime GlenEwin Estate Gatehouse wedding reception.
Again, the reception was a lovely, intimate, simple affair with family and friends, while guests who could not attend recording video messages for the bride and groom which was played on the large screen. During the rest of the reception the whole day was played back using the footage I had taken via my livestream!
As Nadia and Joy’s reception wrapped up after lunch, there was still ample time for us to run about the entirety of the Glen Ewin Estate to make use of some of the amazing spots scattered about for some more glamour photos – which was exactly what we did!
It was so liberating to have a wedding on a Tuesday as there were absolutely nobody else about dictating when and where we could go!
Thanks goes out to Nadia and Joy for having me as your wedding photographer and videographer, photobooth guy and livestreamer! I was certainly busy all day, but it’s always well worth it as I love what i do and I thank you for allowing me to do what i do best!
