After their ceremony at St John’s Camden, Matthew and Bernadette celebrated their wedding in the Southern Highlands at Milton Park Country House, Bowral.

Some people get ready quietly, with just their bridal party. Most still include their parents. Bernadette got prepared at home, well and truly surrounded by her Irish roots and extended family. Since the last time I photographed her sister’s wedding, new family members have been added to the mix.

There’s a short drive from the family home to St Paul's church in Camden, where even more people had gathered to celebrate the vows.

It’s a charming church building with quite a different aspect, much wider as it is than longer. As a photographer, it gives a few different vantages to view the proceedings and be less intrusive, which is always an aim during a ceremony.

After the ceremony, family photos waited until everyone had piled out of the church and congratulated Matthew and Bernadette.

Then it was down through Bowral to Milton Park. Milton Park is probably well known enough as a premier venue in NSW. And it deserves that. The gardens remain a treasure. And the surrounding grounds are full of interesting nooks and crannies to explore. In fact, there are too many to see during a Milton Park wedding. However, occasionally the view opens up to take in the surrounds of Bowral, and it’s all quite sensational.

While we took the time to do some photographs with the bridal party, the guests enjoyed canapés and drinks on the lawn next to the indoor pool.

The Milton Park wedding reception was excellent, with those little personal touches that create some of the magic moments.

Matthew’s mother made an incredibly heartfelt speech among many other lovely and funny talks. I’m a big fan of speeches at weddings. It’s always a privilege to hear people express their stories of love and admiration for each other.

That love can be shown in many ways, of course. Bernadette and her sisters did some spectacular Irish dancing before the dance floor was overrun with everyone else, including the children, who so often know how to dance with the abandon we should all find.

Matthew and Bernadette farewelled everyone in a big circle.
