This was my first Ambrose Estate Wedding and I’m still a little bit confused about where Ambrose Estate exactly is and why it has it’s own identity when it’s situated at/on Wembley Golf Course. It looks and feels like a golf course. A beautiful lush green golf course with lovely big native trees weaving their way through the course. It is clear to see why it is an award-winning venue. With its driving range, mini golf, pro shop, café and restaurant, it’s a golfer and non-golfer’s delight! It even has live music on select days/evenings.
The wedding coordinator was lovely to work with and happy to take me around to all the usual photo spots prior to S & J’s big day so that I could prepare myself. She was also on hand on the actual wedding day to help where needed and to drive us around to the photo spots during the bridal party photo session.
The wedding ceremony itself was held on the lawn, next to the golf course, and in front of a pond with a water fountain. It was quite a pretty setting. It might however be worth mentioning that if you are planning a mid-summer wedding, you may want to consider parasols for the guest as they are likely to be seated in full sun.
S & J had a perfect day for their wedding. I had previously photographed Sinead’s sister getting married (you can read more about their wedding here) so it was fab seeing them and the family again! (Referrals are the best as I get to see previous couples again!) I digress, after we photographed them getting ready at their respective houses, we cruised to the Ambrose Estate wedding location for the formalities. J even brought tears to my eyes when he got emotional seeing his beautiful bride walking down the isle towards him. It was such a sweet and paired back ceremony. Following the “I do’s”, the bridal party and we hopped into the golf buggies and set out to visit a couple of the hidden photo locations that the wedding coordinator had showed me earlier that week. I was very happy that we were able to get some bush land photos in between the green golf course ones – I’m always on the lookout for variety!
At the end of our photo session the convoy of golf buggies returned to the reception room, with a bridal party eager and ready to get the party started. S & J had decorated the tables with pared back rustic details and by putting the photos from their engagement session on display throughout.
As at most weddings, the speeches were funny, the food was delicious, the cake beautiful and after a fun shoe-game and bouquet toss, the dance floor was finally opened with their first dance.
Enjoy this little peak into S & J’s beautifully sweet Ambrose Estate Wedding.
