A 45min drive from Cairns, you will find a private setting, Ringers Rest is nestled in the Mareeba valley of the Cairns highlands, surrounded by open woodlands and the rocky remains of ancient volcanic activity. Wide open space, native wildlife, farm animals and a large rustic barn have been a haven and tranquil escape for family, friends and visitors over the years. The perfect wedding setting, as guests wander through gumtrees and the native garden, its an experience of the best of Australian bush life. The open barn caters for fine dinning while being able to enjoy the views and as the sunsets over Ringers Rest be prepared for a breathtaking experience, the evening sky illuminates with a vast array of colours and patterns. Simple, exclusive, tranquil.
This session was a colabrative effort, creating a romantic country styled shoot, showing off some of my favourite Cairns/Mareeba vendors. Thankyou so much to everyone who helped with preparation, including my beautiful mother, grandmother and uncle Dave.
