WELCOME!

I find the beauty in genuine moments from an editorial perspective, bringing a mixture of fine art, portraiture, and photojournalism to every wedding I capture. My aim is to tell a timeless and beautiful story that not only takes you back to that time and place but that will transport you to an even more romantic and softer version of it.

LOOKING FOR A HUNTER VALLEY WEDDING VENUE WITH ACCOMMODATION?

Welcome to Circa 1876.

With its old-world luxury mixed with modern award-winning menu, it’s no wonder that this is one of the Hunter Valley’s most sought after wedding venues. We absolutely love the atmosphere here, capturing the joy and celebration of your garden ceremony all the way through to your dance floor. Circa 1876 is definitely one of our favourite venues to shoot.

Located on the grounds of The Convent Hunter Valley you are spoilt for choice for accommodation, ceremony options, and dining. The Convent’s historical building and luxe fit-out will have you not wanting to leave. All this, just a stroll down the tree-lined driveway to Circa 1876. Photographing here all year round is always wonderful, with manicured gardens, flowers in bloom, vines and endless green, there are unlimited options to backdrop your love story.

For friends and family, or a unique bride or groom suite, there are also some wonderful options for accommodation, with some of the best self-contained cottage accommodation in the Hunter Valley just around the corner. The Woods at Pokolbin offers two exquisite four-bedroom country houses as well as a luxury architecturally designed modern retreat complete with private jetty and country helipad! The Carriages Boutique Hotel & Vineyard offers the Rosebank Cottage, nestled in a private garden with two private spa suites.

Circa 1876 is a bespoke wedding location where you can customise your wedding to make it your perfect day. We love shooting here, as every couple’s unique plans come to life, all in a different beautiful way. If you want to check out our latest gallery from Circa 1876 then check out the link below.

The Experience

CLIENTS TESTIMONIAL

Jaden & Oscar

"Raquelle and James photographed and filmed our wedding and they did an amazing job! Raquelle is friendly and fun, and made everybody feel relaxed and comfortable for our photos.

The photos look fantastic, and it brings us so much pleasure going back through them regularly to re-live our big day. Raquelle's photography is bright, natural, and tells a great story. We have also had a number printed, including two printed in large format recently for our anniversary, and they have come out beautifully.

I would enthusiastically recommend Raquelle and team to anybody, thank you so much for our photos and film!"
