We love weekday weddings, it gets us out of the office and away from the computer for the day which is a bit of a treat for us when we edit images all day every day (except on the weekends when we shoot!). Doubly excited for Sasha and Andy’s wedding because the location of the wedding was The Pines Campground Martinsville, a place we had never shot. In fact, The Pines Campground Martinsville was a place that we had never even heard of!
So we set out and drove north from Avoca Beach for The Pines Campground Martinsville and Google Maps was not our friend that day. As we got closer to The Pines Campground Martinsville, it felt like we were get farther away and this little gem of a location was not so easy to find. To add fuel to the fire, the petrol gauge was seriously low and we panicked and made the executive decision to back track away from The Pines Campground Martinsville 20 minutes to the servo. As it turned out, we were actually only 50 metres down the road from The Pines Campground Martinsville and because we are (well try to be) super organised, we made it to The Pines Campground Martinsville right in the knick of time.
It was our first time meeting Sasha and Andy at their elopement at The Pines Campground Martinsville and like so many couples Covid had disrupted their plans. With Andy’s parents and family living in the UK, it was impossible to have the family reunited and the travel-loving couple decided an elopement at The Pines Campground Martinsville was the way to go. It was an overcast day, which really worked in our favour, as it gave us nice even light and we did not need to worry about harsh, speckled lighting a bright day would have brought us. A beautiful and intimate ceremony with 6 of their dearest was enjoyed, followed by a quick stroll through the pines and a delicious smorgasbord with flowing wine and sparkling. Sasha and Andy’s love for dancing shone and although there was no dance floor, DJ or band, the small group danced in the afternoon light with not a care in the world!
Thank you Sasha and Andy for letting us capture your beautiful elopement and thanks for introducing us to this location, might need to bring the family up for a little shoot ourselves!
