I’d been so excited to photograph this Refinery wedding for ages! I’d seen how beautifully styled the Refinery can look and Jen & Matt are absolute legends so I knew this would be a good day.

We did some getting ready photos in the city before heading over to Newstead for ceremony. The Refinery was looking fab with lots of gorgeous white balloons and their signature ghost chairs. Jess Robinson, the celebrant, did a wonderful job of the ceremony. After heading back down the aisle and getting lots of hugs and kisses from everyone we had a few snacks and drinks before heading off for photos with the whole crew. We had plenty of time so went to two locations, one in Teneriffe and the other in New Farm so that we could get a few different looks for Jen & Matt.

We headed back to The Refinery and the room looked so amazing filled with all the happy smiling faces of Jen & Matt’s family and friends. I was SO impressed with the staff at The Refinery. They were so considerate of not getting in photos and were all really lovely and friendly.  And the FOOD! Wow – it was truely incredible. I can definitely recommend trying out Rogue Bistro next door who does all the food at The Refinery to see the amazing quality of food you get there.

After lots of hilarious speeches and a beautiful first dance the kids took over the dance floor and the guests spread out to the courtyard area for cocktails and drunken polaroid fun. A truely wonderful day!
