What a fabulous weekend we've just had!

Headed off to Shepparton early Saturday morning. It was one of Campells old mates wedding and we were not just guests but also the photographers for the day.
It was so much fun working and shooting with Campbell. We're both photographers, he ran his own wedding business (only just getting back into photography after a break) and has a BA in photography and I run my own full time portrait studio/business.

The day started with photos at the grooms place, followed by the bride (both were very nervous!) then off to Hurlstone Homestead for the ceremony. Gorgeous place for a wedding and the weather was also very kind to us (if a little too sunny!) After the ceremony we headed to the lake and river in Shepp and captured some more shots before heading to the reception where after alitle bit. both Campbell and myself relaxed and put our feet up for a night of good company, food, laughs and a few wines!

The original plan was to drive back to melbourne after the wedding, but I cant drive at night (poor nigth vision on those country roads) and once Campbell started relaxing with his old mates he didnt want to go home either so we grabbed a motel room and decided to make more of a weekend of it, just slow the pace of life down for a bit.

and that we did.

Sunday morning we were up and out and headed down to Shepp lake (a fav spot) to eat our usual fair of a kebab from Mustafas.
I then remembered a fellow photographer ( Liz Arcus) who is local to Shepparton was having an exhibit this month so I looked it up and we headed on down to see it. Grabbed a coffee and had a very decent browse of her works. If you're local I recommend going down to see it, its at Letizias 67 Fryers St in Shepparton
We figured then lets enjoy the day and look around before slowly cruising home. We headed to the Mooroopna Farmers market and grabbed ourselves some bargains in fresh produce (and supporting local is awesome too)
when we started heading back to melbourne we decied to not take the main highway and instead take the back routes through the smaller towns. So we travelled across to Seymour then Yea and then down through the yarra valley, driving into kinglake also before getting back on the melba hwy and heading home. We stopped at a few little spots to have a look around and had a most enjoyable trip home. Victoria has many beautiful pieces of countryside.
