Tracey & Scott

Tracey and Scott have the perfect love story. Friends for over a decade until they were finally both single at the same time and realised what had been right under their noses all along!
It’s so easy to see why these guys are so perfect for each other. Both easy going and calm, they connect over a love of music and indoor netball – a theme also shared by many of their guests.

There is a saying out there that goes something along the lines of “you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with”. I feel like this is entirely true for Tracey and Scott and is an incredible compliment whichever direction you want to look at it. Scott and Tracey’s bridal party kept us all laughing and grinning our heads off all day. They protected Tracey and Scott from stinging insects and made sure they were impeccably dressed. They were everything you want your hype team to be and more.

After a few photos on site at Gracehill we snuck off to a grotto just down the road. This was one of those locations that was the result of many hours of trawling Google maps and driving in circles looking for hidden gems. I’m sure Tracey and Scott raised their eyebrows a bit when we pulled in to a suburban side street and I announced “we’re here!”

Tracey and Scott finished off their evening with an epic sparkler entrance to their first dance, such a cool way to start the party!

After many weddings at Gracehill Vineyard Estate, this was the first time we had seen a wedding ceremony down in the garden and lake area. Their setup looked incredible and Tracey’s entrance along the path and through the trees had everyone teary eyed. They even flipped the reception setup and made use of the gorgeous natural light coming through the windows behind them. If you’re having a wedding at Gracehill – I highly recommend thinking about this setup too!
