Chateau Elan Wedding Photography | Hunter Valley

Mel & Ben’s Beautiful Autumn Hunter Valley Wedding

Chateau Elan in the NSW Hunter Valley was the backdrop for Melissa and Ben’s perfect day. Carla joined myself to capture their day on video while I floated around with camera in hand. It was great to be back at this beautiful venue again, and with both picture perfect weather and a even more perfect couple our job was made really was easy.

The day was full of laughs, which not only makes the day fun but gives us plenty of opportunities to capture the day in a relaxed and natural way. The photo shoot was all onsite and before you knew it we were back at the reception with a surprise Maori Haka then a fireworks display in the night sky.

Below is a small sample of their day as seen through the lens. For many more images you can now head over to to view their online gallery. This is only open to the family and friends of Melissa and Ben, so keep those passwords handy as you will need this to access the gallery.

We are still working on their video so check back in a few weeks for another version of Mel and Ben’s amazing wedding.
