Ben & Teagan's Spring Wedding at Caves House Hotel

It was a perfect sunny day at Caves House Hotel for Tegan & Ben’s wedding. Caves House, with its beautiful combination of wild Australian landscape and lush layered gardens, holds a special place in Ben and Teagan’s lives, as it was here in late February that the happy couple got engaged.

Floral arrangements by Tamar Sykes at Mayflower Weddings & Events. Teagan wanted a blush bouquet of David Austin roses with sage foliage and eucalyptus leaves. A classic and soft arrangement with a contemporary touch from the eucalyptus, perfectly complemented by the natural environment around us on the day.

 

The Ceremony

The ceremony was performed by close family friend of the bride Jacqui Tibbits, Jacqui played basketball with Teagan and eventually became Teagan’s coach. It is always a beautiful ceremony when the couple are familiar with the celebrant, giving the whole day an added personal touch.

Teagan’s Mother and Father walked her down the aisle. Don’t you think the pink and blue beautifully highlight Teagan’s gorgeous dress? Another personal touch, making their day their own.

Post Ceremony

Photographing couples after the ceremony is always a special, intimate moment. These moments where all the more special as Ben and Teagan revisit the place where it all began, the steps near the birds of paradise, where Ben proposed.
