Chelsea + Jake: Autumn Wonderland Wedding


“We had been dating five years. Two years in, I knew she was the one. The last three years was waiting for the right opportunity.”

Jake popped the big question to his now-missus Chelsea, when they were able to be with her family in South Africa. After thinking about elaborate plans with hot air balloons and champagne on sunrise, it worked out that Cape Town “had other plans.” In the end, Jake decided to pop the question on a morning walk down a secluded beach where they watched the sunrise and it turned out to be the perfect surprise.

“Although I don’t remember much (because I was sweating bullets) I set my camera on motion capture to catch the whole thing. After that it was a whirlwind of celebration with Chelsea’s family as we walked back to the house and told everyone the news. Trying to keep it a secret until we got back to Australia to tell my family and our friends was stressful. Everyone was banned from social media!”

Their wedding was such a beautiful day spent surrounded by those closest to them, including having Jake’s father marry the both of them. The autumn leaves, and deep moody colours of the day made for some amazing photos, by Olguin Photography.
