Nat and Dug’s wedding in the Snowys last weekend was gorgeous! Nat has lived in Berridale most of her life and Dug is an “import” having followed the call of the mountains from his home town of Newcastle. I knew these two had something up their sleeve, so when Dug suggested he wanted to “jump” his family on his mountain bike – I jumped at the chance! Ha! What could to wrong???

Whether you’re a local or an out-of-towner, I highly recommend the snowy region for your wedding. So many amazing spots for your ceremony and your photos too. Not to mention some actual cottage businesses to cater to your every need with diligence and love. You don’t have to torture yourself with a trip to an inner city hipster market to meet some (not so) “real” wedding vendors, just a short trot down the Hume to Jindabyne.

I walked around the pub listening to the stories she had to tell me. As I listened, I heard the whispers of history and the hope of a new beginning. Last week I had the privilege of photographing the newly renovated Buckley’s Crossing Hotel at Dalgety. Its new owners, sisters Deb and Sharon had their work cut out for them, (remember that carpet!) and they have done a wonderful job restoring the old girl back to life. Who knew there was a grand dining room in there! Next time you visit and you’re enjoying your country breakfast, look up. “Whats that enormous curtain rod doing in the middle of the dining room?” you’ll ask yourself. Sharon is the keeper of pub secrets from history past. She’ll tell you a tale or two…_MG_0335 _MG_0348 _MG_0349 _MG_0373 _MG_0378 _MG_0401 _MG_0432 _MG_0440 _MG_0452 _MG_0453 _MG_0463 _MG_0478 _MG_0484 _MG_0514
