Genevieve & Martin’s Wedding

Nelse Lodge at Falls Creek was a very special location for the wedding of Genevieve and Martin. Their wedding day marking the end of their first ski season of owning and running the lodge, it could not have been a more auspicious date to mark beginnings and endings.

When I arrived the Lodge was looking stunning as the dining room was decked out in linens and flowers ready for lunch. I headed upstairs to greet and take photographs of the girls getting ready. Michelle Causon was doing a beautiful job of the hair and make-up of Genevieve and her four bridesmaids. As the girls continued there preparations I ducked downstairs to take some photos of Martin and his son getting ready. In a snap they were ready to go so they were rewarded with the time to enjoy a whisky together by the fireplace in the lounge. When Genevieve was dressed we went out for a couple of bridal photos of the two together before the ceremony.

Genevieve and Martin like to do things there own way, traditions were kept, but only in practical way that suited the couple. A midday ceremony in the warm sun on the balcony of Nelse Lodge surrounded by very special family and friends could not have been more perfect. Falls Creek was turning on the beautiful weather melting off the last bits of snow hanging around for the season. Genevieve was given away by her beautiful daughters and Martin still looked stunned by his beautiful bride-to-be, even though he had already seen her earlier that day. The ceremony conducted by Bruce Kilpatrick was personal and had a few stories that had everyone giggling.

After a few family photos everyone went in to enjoy a long leisurely lunch. The chef prepared meals looked almost as amazing as the Croquembouche. The speeches were insightful and brought many tears and laughter.

After lunch the room filled with people as Falls Creek locals came to join the party. Canapés were served and it was not long until the party was in full swing. Nicky Bomba was exceptionally entertaining and had the whole room laughing and moving in no time. By the time I left my cheeks were hurting from laughing so much.
