Authentic, emotive, natural wedding photography

Cunnigham’s Gap Mountain Wedding

Sue Reilly Photography, creative, modern wedding photography, photographed this beautiful wedding in a hidden-away corner of the Cunningham Gap mountains.
Bridal preparations, the wedding and the reception, were all held at Stacey’s at the Gap. This lovely spot is reached by private road over quiet stream with still pools of water reflecting the sky and surrounding bush-land. Stacey’s is a fully catered venue, containing reception facilities, bush chapel and on-site accommodation. It is tucked way on the edge of the Cunningham Gap national park.
Stacey’s provided a beautiful setting for the romantic wedding of high-school sweethearts, Sheri and Jarrod. They had organised a string quartet for their ceremony to play beside the flowered archway leading onto the bush chapel. The chapel is beautifully positioned to overlook the surrounding bushlands and distant mountains.
Unfortunately, it rained relentlessly on the day of their wedding. It rained with dedication and versatility. We had everything from foggy, lightly misted rain, through to gusts of heavy wind ushering in almost horizontal rain.
In the midst of this elemental chaos, the bride (and her mother) were an oasis of calm. The ceremony was transferred to the reception location, the quartet ushered indoors and guests abandoned the washed out lawn games for other forms of liquid refreshments.
One advantage of transferring the wedding indoors was that with everyone clustered in so close together, you were almost able to physically touch the love and emotional support in the hall. It was a very meaningful ceremony, with several personal touches selected by the bride and groom, and conducted by Warwick Baptist pastor, Chris Skinner.
Rather than having location photos at the venue, we travelled down to the Bestbrook Mountain Resort. Here we were able to take some wonderful pictures in the gorgeous, rustic interior of this fabulous historic building. It was a lovely location and we were very grateful that the hotel’s owner allowed us to use the facilities at short notice.
From there, we travelled back to Stacey’s for the reception, presided over by a magnificent two-sided wedding cake.
