centennial vineyards wedding: roxy&diego

bowral is a small town in the southern highlands area of new south wales; full of gorgeous wineries and open space. the perfect escape from the crowded city of sydney, but still only an hour and a half away. after two nights staying in the area, it was obvious why roxy & diego chose the spot for their mini-destination wedding. stunning.

these two had a guest list that stretched all across the world. roxy’s grandmother flew from south africa to attend and diego’s family flew in from colombia. so amazing that the week before their wedding was the first time roxy’s parents & diego’s mom had a chance to meet. both roxy & diego’s families rented two houses for the weekend; gorgeous estates that made photographing getting-ready images such a treat.

the afternoon ceremony at the centennial vineyards incorporated a flower ceremony, which included the respective national flower of each south africa & colombia — of course, representing the two cultures being merged in roxy & diego’s marriage. during the cocktail hour, guests enjoyed spanish guitar and refreshing lemonade, which we definitely needed in the wine-country heat. i love roxy & diego’s attention to detail, their quirky touches throughout the day. from roxy’s red nail polish and vintage drop earrings, to her and her bridesmaid’s retro hair styles, to their adorable headbands, to diego & his groomsmen’s funky suspenders: this wedding was a fun time.

the reception was a massive party: all about great food, good wine and the dance was set to a great band playing spanish music. the dance floor was my favourite part. friends and family who love roxy & diego openly welcomed the opposite side of their “new” family into their hearts: who even cared if some didn’t speak the same language! loved all the laughter and love and fun.

oh and p.s. diego & his mom dancing together? colombians don’t fool around, those two are amazing. wowzers. wish pictures did it justice. ;) roxy and diego, thank you two for your incredible hospitality both on thursday evening at your engagement session and on your wedding day this past saturday. could not have asked for a sweeter couple to photograph half-way across the world.
