Clare & Corey – Springfield Country Retreat Wedding in Lysterfield

Clare and Corey will tell you straight up. Even the best-laid wedding plans, can get a little shook-up by the infamous Melbourne weather… even in February!

With family flying in for the wedding, it was really important for Clare and Corey to have family nearby. They chose a wedding in a space where they could spend extra time with their loved ones after the wedding. The Springfield Country Retreat Wedding venue and accommodation is the perfect private house for an intimate wedding. With 20 of their closest family members, Clare & Corey spent a week relaxing together. Enjoy the pool and spectacular gardens on those balmy summer evenings and of course, celebrating their wedding.

However, Melbourne’s unpredictable weather shook up their plans. The wedding was originally planned for the on-property rustic barn but was moved from the barn to a large space inside the property.

The ceremony

Clare walked down the aisle on her dad’s arm, closely behind her bridesmaid, Corey’s three daughters. You could feel the warmth, love and connection radiating through the room. With 80 of their friends and family surrounding them, Clare & Corey shared their vows together in a heartfelt ceremony, conducted by wedding celebrant Lucy Gransbury.

The celebration

With the marriage official, it was time for the party to begin. Cue the band. Jack and Jordan, two local Brunswick musicians (also 2016 finalists on The Voice), had everyone up on the dance floor at the Springfield Country Retreat and singing along at the top of their lungs to Mumford & Sons ‘I will wait’. I still remember the buzz on the dancefloor and the pure joy of having all the family there together.

Thank you Clare and Corey for asking me to be your wedding photographer. See how happy you are together and how much love you are surrounded by with your family and friends fills my heart with joy. Much love, Marisa

PS. Clare, I still remember warmly your mum pouring me the most delightful cup of tea at the end of the evening. Such a beautiful, caring moment I will treasure forever xx

MELBOURNE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER – MEET MARISA FROM CADENCE & GRACE

I’m Marisa from Cadence and Grace Photography and I’m not your average Melbourne Wedding Photographer. To me, a wedding is the greatest celebration of the depths of human connection. When you know in your core that ‘your person’ makes you light up inside and that you can’t imagine a world without them. A wedding is a celebration of you finding each other in this crazy world. It’s your declaration screaming ‘Hells YES!’ to a lifetime of daily adventures, holiday planning, long brunches, eternally lost socks, long drives, trying to keep indoor plants alive and fights over which movie to watch together on Netflix. It’s a celebration of the real you, together and the perfectly imperfect.

Above all, when I document your wedding, I’m documenting a story and connection that is unique to the two of you. I’m showcasing its beauty in a day filled with fresh florals, champagne toasts, smiles (and often tears), proud grandparents, first kisses, cheese towers, drunken cousins and dance floor antics. The big moments and all the little moments in between.

I only take a limited number of weddings each year. To see if I’m available on your wedding day, drop me a message on my contact page or email me at hello@cadenceandgrace.com . Marisa xx
