Heidi & Sam's Hot Monarto Zoo Wedding Part 2

Welcome back to part 2 of Heidi & Sam's beautiful Monarto Zoo wedding! (If you missed part 1 you can view it here). In this post I'll share with you all of the beautiful portraits, and a few snaps of the reception. This is (like most of my weddings!) one of my favourite shoots, it was hot (very hot!), but we got some great portrait photos!

After the ceremony, and a chat with most of the guests, Heidi, Sam & I were able to sneak away for a few gorgeous and intimate photos of just the 2 of them. This is what we got!

After our little intimate portrait session we didn't have to wait too much longer for a bus to come pick us up and drive us to a couple of the nice photo locations at Monarto Zoo. I was pleasantly surprised! Monarto Zoo is much more than a place for animal lovers on their wedding day, the grounds are vast and beautiful with several hidden gems of a location.

The reception was also held at Monarto, overlooking the Tassie Devil cage! As the sun started to go down and temperature with it everyone relaxed into having a great time!
