Wedding: Claire and Benjamin

Meet Claire and Benjamin: salt of the Earth, fun, lovely people. I first met Claire climbing trees. Claire and Benjamin became friends at university studying Agricultural Science. Their love blossomed and they currently live rurally farming olives and canola. Their wedding featured many personal, meaningful and family traditions. Their ceremony was held at the church where all the boys in Benjamin's family were married; their garden wedding reception venue was relaxed and intimate. Good food, plenty of wine, Italian beer and dancing music followed. The olive oil favors were grown and pressed by Benjamin's family; finished with labels designed by Claire's chief bridesmaid. This truly was a celebration I was honoured to be a part of.
