Mike and Taryn

Mike and Taryn did things their own way at their wedding, it was unconventional, relaxed and fun and completely awesome! We loved every minute of it!!! Thanks for choosing us to photograph your special day!   Get a load of these gorgeous humans!


Why did you choose the Glades as your dream wedding venue?

“We had originally booked to see two venues, we went to The Glades first and totally fell in love with it because its probably the most beautiful venue in the whole world, we immediately cancelled our second viewing.  The barn was also a huge plus for us as i have always wanted to get married in a barn.”

How did Mike propose?

“He took me to our favourite getaway, Granny Mouse. He asked me in the privacy of our room – where it was just the two of us… exactly how i would want it, too much romance freaks me out. haha”

Tell us about your vision for your day as well as any advise you might have for future brides?

“FUN and CHILLED…. No drama, just dancing and drinking and celebrating with our closest friends and family.”

“Wedding planning is fun, enjoy it.  Dont get caught up in trying to please your mom, friends, mother-in-law, cousin, sister…do what makes you happy, at the  end of the day its YOUR day and you will regret not doing what you originally wanted. Mike and i are not very traditional about most things wedding, so there was no bouquet throwing or garter tossing, you have to make the day as most “you” as you can. “
