Oh wow, Carol and Ash’s Glen Ewin Pulpshed wedding was just incredible – beautiful weather, stunning people in an amazing location, just made the entire process of taking stunning wedding photos that much easier and fun!
I had been to the Pulpshed in the past to cover a wedding, but I had been looking forward to Carol and Ash’s for quite a while as it had been about 10 years since I was last down here. Plenty of times up at the gatehouse – but not the Pulpshed!
Ash and his groomsmen were preparaed at a nearby friend’s house. The first thing anyone would have noticed was the pristine red porche parked out the front of the house! Certainly drew the eye!
I arrived and was surprised to see that everyone had already put all their suits on! Pretty much ready to get going, which was ok as we diddnt have much time anyway, but was certainly a little different to most weddings where I’m often meeting the boys just rolling out of bed from a big night out. 🙂
For preparation photos we put the finishing touches on, like throwing on the suit jackets, helped each other with ties, and then of course played pool and took a few shots with the Porches out front.
Carol and her bridal party were getting ready at the family house, closer to Glen Ewin. Ash had warned me about how awesome their garden was, and it was certainly pretty awesome! There was a creek running through the garden, full of running water due to the recent rains, complete with a little footbrdge that connected one half of the garden with another.
Made for a pretty neat spot for bridal party shots and a first look with Dad, who hammed it up nicely!
Glen Ewin Pulpshed Wedding Ceremony
I had been looking forward to covering Carol and Ash’s Glen Ewin Pulpshed wedding ceremony for a while as there is this amazing pond and stone jetty leading out to a huge weeping willow tree that is usually used as a backdrop for ceremonies – however unfortunately due to the recent weather it was deemed too muddy for the congregation to use, so the ceremony was set up under the Pulpshed’s veranda.
The veranda space is adorned by vines and decorated with wooden features like wine barrels, and also of course allowed all their guests to be undercover in case of rain – which wasn’t likely on their day. It’s a nice space, but the only issue I have with it is that it’s impossible to get around the left hand side of the congregation in order to get a grinning photo of the groom looking at his bride.
Carol and her bridesmaids arrived in style riding in two volkswagon kombis, which suited the theme and aethetic of the wedding beautifully, and the ceremony took place with lots of laughter, tears and heartfelt tributes to the children who were now a part of a new family unit. It was lovely.
After the group shots and the drone big group shot, we walked about the stunning gardens a bit to make use of the awesome pond and stone jetty which I mentioned before. The greens in the trees were super lush due to the recent weather and just made evrything such a delight to walk through!
We also made sure .to use the Kombis in a few group shots with Carol and Ash’s bridal party before they left.
The main downside was unfortunately Ash managed to draw the ire of an angry bee while out and about taking photos, got a bit of a bee stong – but all seemed well!
Glen Ewin Pulpshed Wedding Reception
The wedding reception took place in the Pulpshed, complete with my photobooth running in the corner, and everyone having a great time in this stunning setting!
I was only asked to take photos for 6 hours, but as I was thewre with the photobooth anyway, I had to take some shot of the first dance and the other events, 🙂
Thanks so much Ash and Carol for having me!
