Ash & Alex – 27th october 2024
We truly can’t thank you enough for creating such a magical day for us at Brindabella Hills Winery. The first time I visited in 2019, I said to Michael I thought it would be such a beautiful place for a wedding. I was such a BHW frequent flyer over the years and took so much pleasure taking friends and family out there to wow them over lunches and helped host a baby shower out there too!
When I brought Alex earlier this year, I really hoped he’d love it but I tried not to say much so I wouldn’t influence his opinion. After our fun meeting with you, he said as we walked down the driveway that it was really magical and he didn’t want to look anywhere else. That was where he pictured us getting married with our friends and family around us. I was so elated! I’ve always loved it out there and I’ve loved watching the transformation over time, it’s become more spectacular each year and knowing I’d be getting married there has been so exciting these past few months.
Our wedding day was better than we ever could have imagined. It all came together so beautifully (I got teary when I walked in and saw it all!) and you were such an integral part to how seamlessly and smoothly it all ran. I had no idea how personally involved you’d be on the day and we were both blown away. The attention to detail, fluffing my dress before I walked down the aisle (you even looked like one of my bridesmaids in your chic black outfit!) popping up regularly to check in on us or offer a drink, running around all afternoon and evening moving things, fixing things – you were exceptional. I have no idea how you managed to find the time to film the most beautiful video capturing all the intimate moments from our day but we are so grateful! I still cry every time I watch it and it really hits different with Holocene playing – such a special song to us both.
Thank you Maddi for everything you did for us, for being so wonderful with my parents who adore you, for introducing us to the amazing chef and broader team at Brindabella Hills and making us feel like we were part of the family and ensuring the day ran so perfectly. We wish we could do it all again (minus the nerves)! It was so lovely seeing Michael on the day and we’re very grateful that he let us creep around to his place and capture some photos featuring his incredible house (and view!) and pretend it’s ours.
