Last year I had the pleasure of photographing a wedding at the Gorge in Launceston, Kirsty and Rob were coming over from the mainland to get married and make their two families, one large family.
I met their lovely children and we took some lovely relaxed photos (in between the pouring rain) and had the wedding ceremony in the rotunda at the Gorge. It was a pleasure to capture their special day.
Its scary when your children think time is moving fast. When I was a child I though hours went for days, and days went for weeks. I took these photos over the holiday break at Scamander, on the East Coast of Tasmania. Someone commented to me that she looks so grown up, and she does. She still hates having her photo taken but sometimes I can convince her to be my model and she will have a little fun with it.
When I opened the photos to edit them I realised, she surely isn’t little anymore and time is just going way. too. fast.
Last month I had the privilege of photographing another friend of mine, whom I have known a very long time. The day began at Hotel on Charles, which I hadn’t visited yet, although had admired from the outside. Michael and his groomsmen were preparing for the big day. Michael had chosen the suits himself, he did a great job putting it all together. As it usually is with the boys, preparation for the wedding day is usually a bit more relaxed.
Over at the Bride’s home, things weren’t quite the same…..
Poor Jade was sick and could barely talk, her family had stocked up on Soothers and water to help her through the big day.
Jade’s make up artist was Olivia Jones she did a fantastic job at making the bride, bridesmaids and mother of the bride glamorous.
The ceremony was lovely, and we soon headed out to Evandale for some bridal portraits, thankfully the day was not too cold, and the rain stayed away.
The reception was at the Happy Chef in Longford, it was wonderfully decorated, complete with lolly buffet, photo booth, and suitcase to write the bride and groom a message to read on their first anniversary. All these things were put together by Jade and her mother, they did a fantastic job.
It was such a wonderful day, and I felt lucky to be able to photograph it.
