It doesn’t take much to get our hearts racing – anything to do with a wedding usually does the trick, but we are head-over-heels for Chance and Jessica’s heart-achingly beautiful Darlington Estate affair. Perth-based photographer Teneil Kable was on hand to capture the elegance and her stunning snaps speak for themselves.

The WA natives attended the same school, a few years apart but didn’t properly cross paths until some years later when Chance (Bateman, of Hawthorn fame) was back home on a break from football season. The rest, as they say, is history! Of their wedding, Jessica says “We wanted it to be a classic style, sit down type of wedding but also be a representation of us, so not too formal.”

With Kristy of Flights of Fancy onboard, Chance and Jessica’s styling was spot-on and the rustic vibe of their venue suited the theme perfectly. Every surface was adorned with lush flowers and foliage – think deconstructed arrangements, pretty votives and hanging botanic installations, the incredible handiwork of Rebecca Grace of Natural Art Flowers. According to Jess, her rep for out-of-this-world floristry precedes her. “We received so many compliments on the flowers,” she shares. “When the bouquets arrived in the morning I was blown away. A lot of people said to me that she was the best in the business and I truly think she is.”

In a beautifully feminine lace gown by Donna Tobin and soft wavy tresses, Jess nailed the elegant yet relaxed bridal look.

Originally the pair weren’t sure about the very rustic Darlington Estate, but after visiting in person they instantly saw the potential. “Darlington Estate really comes to life at night! It’s based in the hills of Perth and is quite secluded. We really liked how relaxed the owners were compared to other venues and how the venue was so private and intimate.” Says Jess

“Kristy (of Flights of Fancy) was our saviour organising the wedding.” Jess shares. “She was a priceless support for us and gave us plenty of advice leading up to the wedding. Nothing was ever too much of an effort and she turned our reception space into something really beautiful.”

According to the bride, Teniel Kable won her over as soon as they met, "I was completely comfortable around her." Jess tells us. "She is absolutely lovely. I had 100% faith in her ability as a photographer and she definitely surpassed our expectations. Teneil gave us all the direction we needed on the day without being pushy or invasive. She captured many special memories which we will be able to cherish for a long time."
