Jessica and Brenton – Summerfields Estate Wedding Photography

Jessica and Brenton fell in love with Summerfields Estate the moment they first saw it and booked it immediately. The rustic setting, located on the picturesque Mornington Peninsula, provided the perfect Wedding venue with its grand, American style homestead set amidst manicured lawns, lush vegetation and open fields.

In the stylish and well-appointed country home, Jessica and her bridesmaids carefully prepared for the Wedding day. Jessica sparkled in her intricately beaded, elegant, lace gown with its plunging backline featuring dainty designer straps.

On her right hand, she proudly wore Brenton’s Mother’s Wedding and Engagement rings to honour the special lady who had passed away a couple of years earlier.

The treasured rings were “something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue”. It was Brenton’s sister’s idea and a beautiful gesture.

Peachy pale pink hues in the bridesmaids’ full-length dresses were softly echoed in Jessica’s bouquet of perfect, pastel roses. Radiant and calm, yet “ridiculously excited”, she was eager to see her beloved.

Brenton and his groomsmen, stylish in the relaxed formality of grey trousers, fashionable braces and white, rolled sleeved shirts, waited expectantly on the neatly trimmed lawns near the tranquil lake.

Tempering her nervousness with a sunny smile, Jessica emerged from the French doors and walked the soft, petal-strewn aisle on the arm of her proud Father.

All traces of “butterflies” immediately fluttered away as she saw Brenton smiling adoringly at her from under the leafy Wedding arbor.

The beauty of his glowing bride was overwhelming and that first glimpse dispelled any anxiety that he had momentarily felt.

Hearts and roses, representing love, were the perfect symbol for the couple, who describe each other as having “big hearts”.

Jessica loves Brenton for his kindness, loyalty and willingness to go out of his way to help people.

“That’s why everyone is so drawn to him. He sees the good in people.”

Brenton loves that Jessica is “funny, caring and has the same family values”. She is his “rock”, “always seeing the good” in any situation.

As the bride and groom expressed their vows and melted into each other’s arms as husband and wife, guests basked in the glow of their loving rapport.

Jessica and Brenton walked excitedly down the aisle to the soulful music of The xx, “Angels”, borne on a wave of elation and unbounded happiness.

In Summerfields’ rustic setting, the newlyweds relaxed into the moment as the camera captured the subtle nuances and deep emotional connection between them.

They had first met in 2009. Brenton was initially captivated by Jessica’s beautiful eyes and she was attracted by his sense of humour.

Jessica appreciates his ability to make her laugh in any situation and his carefree nature.

Brenton loves to chuckle at Jessica’s “attempts to sing” and loves their “banter”. They are very similar and in tune with each other.

A first date to see the movie, “Zombieland”, must have been the “right move” as the relationship blossomed from there.

A calm, comfortable and confident Brenton, giving no hint of what was to come, was able to shock Jessica with his proposal in September 2012 and she couldn’t stop crying tears of absolute happiness.

Guests made their way into the light-filled Reception Hall to begin celebrations. They were seated at elegant tables adorned with large vases of pastel roses and delightful decorations, lovingly chosen by Jessica from extensive searches online.

A highlight of the evening was Brenton’s speech. Known for his lively sense of humour and taking on the role of “class clown”, he totally surprised and evoked deep emotion in Jessica with words that he spoke from the heart.

“He said the most beautiful things about us and our journey together.”

After the newlyweds’ intimate first dance, to Bob Marley’s, “Is This Love?”, family and friends eagerly joined in and soon the dance floor was rocking with lively dancers, intent on having a great time.

Reflecting on their special day, Jessica and Brenton both agreed: “The main thing for us on our Wedding day is that we had an absolute ball!”

With so much emphasis on planning and avoiding things going wrong, “no-one really tells you how much fun your Wedding day is.”

“By far the best day of our lives!”
