The start of 2021 ushered in an unforgettable event: the EPIC wedding celebration of Teagan and Jack! Recommended to capture this special day by Mikaylah and Nick – whose own weddings I had shot a few years prior – it was my honour to bear witness at Branell Homestead, one spot that never fails to amaze me with its lush greenery thanks to recent flooding from much-needed rainfall. With warm weather on our side, all manner of joy abounds as we watch two lovely souls unite as one through marriage!
On the big day of Teagan and Jack’s wedding, their bridal party was a beautiful mix of friends and family. Though each one came from different background, they all gathered as one to help them celebrate in style! They shared laughs during the ceremony while emotions ran high – it seemed like everyone had come together just for this momentous occasion, with sincere joy lighting up every face around them. As if fate brought these special people into place beside the happy couple, love sparkled through this unique gathering that made everything even more unforgettable.
And so we end up here at the highlight video. the music perfectly matches a film full of friendship, love, humour and emotion….and some wicked dancing! ENJOY
I am very grateful I could be there to enjoy their day with Teagan Jack and Friends.
During my most recent visit to Branell Homestead in early 2021, it was apparent that the venue had seen several weddings and was starting to show signs of wear. However, the owners were actively working on revamping and improving the site. Upon my return for Rylee & Izaya wedding in late November 2022, I was pleased to see that the efforts had paid off – the grounds were lush and green. The addition of accommodations has also elevated the venue, giving guests a more comfortable experience while feeling secluded enough to enjoy their special day with loved ones. Overall, Branell Homestead is now an excellent choice for a countryside wedding with ample amenities and picturesque surroundings
