At Lonely Hunter, we only photograph a limited number of weddings each year and do book out quite far in advance. 
Don't leave it until we are already booked before you decide to make an enquiry..


Rebecca & David – The Stables, Bendooley Estate

Can you tell us a little about yourselves?: We’re both scientists and met in the lab. We were originally friends who then started dating after a hot European summer. A house, a dog and an engagement ring later, and the rest is history!!

How did the proposal take place that lead to your wedding at The Stables Bendooley Estate?: David proposed on a road trip to the Northern Territory. We were at a lookout by ourselves and he asked me to pose for a photo with a beautiful waterfall in the background, when I turned around he was holding a ring that was sparkling in the NT sun! I was completely surprised and squealing with excitement. We were standing on a metal grill hanging over a canyon and with all the nerves and emotion of the moment our hands were shaking so much we nearly dropped the wedding ring through the grill!

What have you learnt about each other since being together?: Rebecca – Dave has taught me how to relax and enjoy life. David – I’ve learnt that I’m easily manipulated by Becky.. in a good way!

Can you share a little about the vision you have for your wedding at The Stables Bendooley Estate?: We want it to be a family and friend focused event with great food and wine as well as ample time to spend with guests. We know the day will be beautiful, so our overarching vision is that we keep the day fuss free and simple 🙂

Bendooley Estate is a lovely venue, what was the reason for selecting The Stables?: We absolutely love the Southern Highlands and the rustic but modern elegant charm of The Stables suited us perfectly. The venue is a beautiful one-stop location for both the ceremony and reception and will look gorgeous and luscious during spring! We’re super excited for the big day – more so to share our happiness together with our friends and family.
