Cate and Renato’s Lake Breeze wines wedding took place on a stunning mid-December day surrounded by family and friends who were all delightful to be around!
cate and renato made use of my ever popular live stream service in order to include guests who could not attend due to COVID travel restrictions and also had my second photographer in tow in order to capture more angles!
cate and renato’s day could not have gone more smoothly – despite a rather unfortunate run in with swarms of mosquitoes while trying to have some photos taken, but we still got some great shots!
My day started with Renato and his groomsmen getting prepared at a bed and breakfast in Brighton. It was only Renato and his two groomsmen in the whole house do getting prepared was quite a simple affair, and got ready rather quickly.
A quick group shot on the road out the front and I was off to the girls!
Cate and her bridesmaids were being prepared at another bed and breakfast in Seacliff with a delightful view of the nearby beach from it’s sprawling back patio! Cate’s Mum was also there to help out with the preparations which all occured amidst a lot of fun.
Lake Breeze Wines Wedding Ceremony
Cate and Renato’s Lake Breeze wines wedding ceremony took place on a large piece of grass, surrounded by a scattering of gum trees and backdropped by the vineyards that surrounded the cellar door and function rooms where the reception took place a little later in the day.
It was a little unfortunate that due to the sunny weather that Renato was looking into the sun throughout the ceremony but he was looking at his beatiful bride all throughout to notice much.
Their ceremony was a simple affair with a heartfelt speech or two from family before sealing the deal with a kiss and flower petal showered exit!
After group photos were done, we head off around the grounds to make use of the diverse surrounds that having a Lake Breeze wines wedding affords you and your photographer to make use of! Unfortunately as I mentioned earlier, the further away we ventured down the driveway, the more mosquitoes started attacking Cate and Renato which meant we couldnt stay too long amongst the otherwise delightful gum trees I was looking forward to using in their wedding photos!
After reatreating back towards the ceremony location, we used the vineyards a bit for some shots, and also head out at sunset for more.
Lake Breeze Wines Wedding Reception
The reception area at Lake Breeze Wines is a large, modern space that has obviously had a lot of work doen to it by the owners! The dance floor is lined with wine barrels and the sound system installed in the ceiling is quite impressive – even according to their DJ!
Was a very fun night with plenty of dancing and having fun.
I’d like to thank Cate and Renato for having me as their wedding photographer! It’s always fun to visit new wedding venues like Lake Breeze wines and I look forward to heading back there in the future!
