When I first met Carin for coffee, she beamed when chatting about the landscapes surrounding their wedding venue. The mountains surrounding Olive Rock, captured their hearts and adventurous souls; I knew we would get along like a house on fire.
The following excerpt from Ben's father's speech perfectly highlights the special love and companionship that Ben and Carin have for each other. A beautiful balance of two independent souls;
'Give Ben support. Space to travel and run, and we all know he will be a wonderful man to be your partner. Play to your strengths and there would be nothing you can't achieve.'
Carin and Ben started their adventure as husband an wife, by tying the knot on a sunny autumn day in the garden surrounded by all the things they love; their family, friends, the outdoors and MOUNTAINS!
Everyone enjoyed cocktails and amazing live music in the shade while the sun set over the Wolseley Valley. The mountains lit up with the most gorgeous hues of purple, pink and reds. After a quick sneak away during golden hour, the newlyweds joined their loved ones for an unforgettable Al Fresco dinner under the stars and strings of ambient fairy lights. Once the dance floor was officially opened, everyone (even Carin's grandad, Boompa) celebrated this special union. Here are a few highlights of their day;
