Back in April, I photographed Kelly & Neil's elopement at Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley (https://crowneplazahuntervalley.com.au). I was sent as an associate photographer for ArtyJ Photography.
Kelly & Neil told me they had been together for 'quite a long time'. They came up to the Hunter Valley on a trip with two of their best-friends and decided to elope.
As two very laid back, non-materialistic people, Kelly told me this was exactly what they wanted. A no fuss, non-traditional quick ceremony followed by a celebratory drink with their best-friends. Neil on the other hand, told me "A quick smooch, sign and a piss-up at the bar is the way to go". That made me laugh out loud!
We ran a little wild, jumping in golf carts & dancing our way across the fields. Whooping and hollering and hysterically laughing as we made our way from location to location.
They were a unique, hilarious and in-love couple! It is an elopement I will definitely remember.
Congratulations Kelly & Neil!
