Maddie & Deo Pialligo Estate Wedding

It was the best of times, long overdue after the worst of times. Back in September 2020 when large-scale gatherings and weddings weren’t happening in most states, the ACT was Covid-free and managed to reopen earlier (and with dancing!) before other states. Maddie & Deo forged ahead with their plans determined to mark their moment with joy and tears and good food.

The wedding was held at the captivating Pialligo Estate, in the heart of Canberra. The cherry blossoms and the vines put on a perfect performance for the bride and groom, who themselves dazzled their friends and family by looking hands-down adorable together.

“I love how Deo and always make me smile and laugh, no matter what is going on. He makes me feel so loved all the time with everything that he does.”

Those cherry blossoms were absolutely spectacular. Such a welcome addition to the portrait session.

If time permits, I always enjoy experimenting a little with some photos of the bride and groom.

After months of lockdown and social distancing, Maddie & Deo’s wedding was one of the first weddings in Canberra unencumbered by dancefloor restrictions. And you can be we partied hard!
