Elly & Ed

When you have a wedding anywhere in Victoria, you always have to plan for all the seasons you get in one day. And Daylesford is no exception. Elly & Ed had their beautiful celebration at Sault, Daylesford and it was the perfect location for these two.

I get to shoot in Daylesford a lot but it’s not often I get to see rainbows and waterfalls during a wedding day! The plus side of having a bit of rain! Sault is perfect for all weather conditions anyway with their little lakehouse chapel for indoor ceremonies and their beautiful restaurant for their receptions.

I absolutely LOVED being a part of Elly & Ed’s wedding day and it’s one that I will remember forever. I am often pinching myself, I get to work with the perfect clients that trust my craft and vision and they love their images at the end of the day. It’s pretty special!

Ceremony/Reception venue: Sault – Daylesford. Jodi, Damien and the incredible team at Sault were absolutely amazing! They coordinated the day seamlessly. Even with the weather changing as much as it did, we knew they had everything covered and we are so grateful for that. They helped keep us calm and relaxed throughout the entire planning process. All of the details were perfect, from the delicious food and drink, professional and attentive service, gorgeous chapel/reception space and beautiful gardens, just to name a few. We can’t wait to return to Sault to celebrate our first wedding anniversary next year.

Photography: Jai Long – Free The Bird Photography. Where do we start! Jai is the most amazing photographer (and person!) you will ever meet. The best decision we ever made was to book Jai to shoot our wedding and we are still pinching ourselves that we were lucky enough to book him! We are absolutely in love with our photographs and get goosebumps every time we look through them. Jai is such an incredible artist and his photographs evoke all of the indescribable feelings of the day. He is so genuine, professional, calming, kind and talented! We will be forever grateful to Jai for capturing our day so perfectly. Honestly, if you are getting married you should definitely book Jai for your photographs. He is absolutely amazing and it will be the best decision you make, ever!

Celebrant: Tracey Patterson – Tracey is an amazing celebrant. She was warm, caring, calm, organised and professional every step of the way. From the moment we met her, we knew we had met a truly special soul. We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant!


Videography: David Josue – We were lucky enough to have David from Josue Films shoot our wedding day and he was absolutely incredible! David brought such a warm, friendly, positive and professional energy to the day. He is so extremely talented at what he does and this translates directly into the quality of his films. We fell in love with the style of David’s work when we were researching videographers and we were so happy to book him. We couldn’t recommend David highly enough!

Florist: Zara Nicholls, Wooton and Nicholls – Daylesford. Zara from Wooton and Nicholls is such a talented florist (and beautiful person!). Our floral arrangements were absolutely stunning and were exactly what we had pictured them to be. We loved that Zara incorporated my favourite colour (blue) into our arrangements so beautifully. We are so grateful for everything Zara did to help make our day so special.

Hair: Gabbie Ward – Gabbie is such a professional and talented hairdresser (and gorgeous person!). My bridesmaids and I were so happy with our hair on the day. We couldn’t recommend Gabbie highly enough!

Make Up: Adriana Rose Makeup Artist – Adriana is amazing! She is such a beautiful person inside and out and an extremely talented make-up artist. We were all so happy with our makeup on the day. Highly, highly recommend this beautiful lady and her makeup services.
