It all started with one of the longest email enquiries I have ever received. Which included a compliment about how gorgeous my girls were, and got better from there.
There were logistical hassles – Grace and Sam live and got married in Tasmania.
There were last minute flight changes. There was dodgy weather, and things didn’t go totally to plan.
But this was the most intimately epic wedding day. My wedding clients don’t have huge weddings – they invite people they are close to, people they want to share the day with. Grace and Sam had 20 guests. That included me and Josh – who is an awesome film maker. When I sat down to dinner, I felt as at home as if I were an invited guest.
Grace and Sam celebrated their wedding day at the Islington. A gorgeous, cool boutique hotel. Their ceremony was by the willow. The churches you will see in the images are the churches that their parents got married in – we went there for the formal stuff. It was that kind of day. There was some rain. There was much happiness. There were card games. Handmade bouquets and buttonholes. Much beauty and laughter.
Grace, Sam – your hospitality and thoughtfulness made an otherwise brilliant day absolutely wonderful.
I hope these images reflect it.
