There’s something about weddings that is so uplifting. We all seem to be so crazy busy these days that I guess it is a very rare thing that we stop and collectively celebrate together. Perhaps, that’s why weddings are so fantastic, it gives us all an opportunity to take a moment – pause – and just feel the pure joy of two people in love.
I’ve been looking forward to Richard bringing home images from Carly and Coady’s Alstonville wedding. These two had me hooked from their engagement shoot, they are just a really sweet couple and we knew the wedding would be something beautiful. I’m a big fan of vintage weddings, accessories and colours and there are some really beautiful details in this wedding that just looked fantastic. Carly exuded classical beauty on the day and I just know these images are going to make a killer wedding album.
Carly and Coady, I’m glad your wedding day was everything you hoped it would be, we send our very best wishes for your radiant future together.
The lead up to anyone’s wedding can be stressful, but for Stacey and Mark, it seemed like they had more than their fair share of hurdles. In the past week they had a number of hiccups with suppliers, including a car smashing through the front of their florist’s shop. Thankfully all their flower’s were safe, but with the run of luck they were having, of course it was going to rain on their big day.
In the morning there was a little light drizzle about, but just as the bride’s limo pulled into the church driveway, the heavens opened and down it came. Despite all of this, I never once saw anything less than a smile on the faces of Stacey and Mark, even during the location shoots when we all got a little wetter than we would have liked (take a look at Mark’s jacket in some of the images below). Their happiness however was contagious and the entire bridal party and myself all had a great afternoon. Thanks guys for making the wettest wedding I’ve attended for a while so much fun!
I’ve shot many, many weddings since I committed to being a full-time wedding photographer. Some were small, intimate, backyard weddings; some grand weddings with several hundred guests; there were weddings on the beach; weddings in churches; weddings in gardens – it is a wonderful thing that each wedding is so unique and often so touching.
Every now and then I’m lucky enough to shoot a wedding that really encapsulates the fairy tale that many young women dream of. Rosemary looked every bit the modern Cinderella, from her stunning diamante encrusted heels to her gorgeous fairy-tale wedding dress – she looked amazing. Rosemary and Dale’s wedding was not only beautiful but it was really a fun shoot and there was an insane amount of laughter throughout the day. Here are just a few of my favourite images – thanks for choosing me to shoot your big day Rosemary and Dale, I had a fantastic time.
There were no fake smiles or false kisses at this photo shoot. Every time Rosemary and Collin looked at one another they both simply beamed! I think I spent more time trying to pry them apart than encouraging them to embrace. Well, that may not be entirely true, but there is no questioning just how in love they both are and their smiles and laughter made for a very enjoyable afternoon. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding next month at Dayboro’s gorgeous Glengariff Estate.
