Toorak Hotel Torquay Wedding Photography || Cailin & Ben’s Relaxed, Fun, DIY Wedding

Cailin & Ben booked me around a month before their big day due to a mistake by their original photographer and I feel so lucky that I was available to be their photographer, I absolutely loved capturing their relaxed, fun wedding at the Toorak Hotel, Torquay.

Inspired by pinterest, this wedding was 4 years in the making, with Cailin creating flower girl dresses, the bouquets, all the decorations and invites, making everything very personal and romantic. Ben provided lots of patience and cups of tea! Cailin loved making everything for the wedding so much that it inspired them to do it as a business!

Their wedding was all about making memories and making it last. Doing everything DIY meant that they could have their big dream wedding within their budget.
