Timeless Southern Highlands Wedding at The Rift Bowral NSW

A love that translates though time 

Katherine & Winston were only a stone’s throw from Sydney but a world away from its’ bustling stress at their intimate elopement in the NSW Southern Highlands.  

Witnessed by a select few and under the loving gaze of Mother Nature herself, the bride and groom pronounced their love in the lush gardens of the historic mansion The Rift, in Bowral NSW.  

 The tables were classically dressed with a glint of stylish silverware, beautiful calligraphy and stunning blooms which punctuated the lush greenery of the rambling countryside.  

Unapologetically intimate, the wedding of Katherine & Winston was captured in timeless fine art photography that is sure endure the test of time.
