Real Weddings: Phillipa & Anurag's Romantic Country Estate Wedding

Bendooley Estate Wedding Hilary Cam Photography Sydney

The wedding you are about to view is entirely romantic and gorgeous in many ways. The couple is stunning, the locale is pristine and dreamy, but it's the person behind the lens that really makes the day shine beautifully. All thanks to one of our favorite Australian photographers Hilary Cam Photography! We've had the pleasure to feature their work before, more than a few times, and I relish in featuring them again with Phillipa & Anurag's lovely Australian country estate wedding.

Photographer Hilary shed light on the couple's special day:
Photographing this wedding made me see with fresh eyes how precious our families are, the importance of far away friendships and reminded me that marriage is more than loving an individual, it is also accepting and embracing their family, friends and culture.

Philippa and Anurag met in Sydney, they now live in London but decided to have their destination wedding back in Australia at the magnificent Bendooley Estate in the Southern Highlands. This venue is overflowing with treasures, pockets of beautiful backdrops; lakes, vineyards, autumn leaves, rolling hills, golden fields and more stories then you could imagine. Philippa and Anurag’s wedding day was drenched with love, their love of music, travel, books and of course family and friends – many of their guests traveling across oceans to share in their day.

When Philippa walked down the aisle, we all witnessed a magical moment. Golden light glinting through the pine trees and autumn leaves falling around her. The ceremony was beautiful in so many ways, the location under the pines, the perfect weather after a cold week, the ceremony and the autumn colours. But I think the most memorable moment was when surprise guest, Abby Dobson, took to the microphone and sang “All you need is love” from The Beatles. All the guests joined in and became her backup singers erupting into song. Equally as beautiful was when Abby sang her hit “Even when I’m sleeping” – a favourite song of Anurag’s father, he just sat back and closed his eyes listening to the music overcome with emotion.

I don’t think words can really describe just how beautiful this wedding was, hopefully these photos do it justice and share a fraction of what we felt on the day.

I can say, the photography definitely does justice for the beautiful day. Please enjoy Phillipa & Anurag's Romantic Country Estate Wedding, as captured by Hilary Cam Photography:

Such a breathtaking day for Phillipa and Anurag! From the color palette, to the lovely ceremony, and the after ceremony portraits of the bridal party and, of course, the lovely Phillipa & Anurag. Their romantic images taken with the sunshine around them, and their silly moments playing in the leaves, meeting a horse, walking in the field are so sweet. It's easy to see why this location was picked, it's a gorgeous spot for capturing romantic moments. 

Our thanks again to Hilary Cam Photography for sending another lovely wedding our way!
