Lisa & Tim :: {wedding}

Lisa is from England, Tim, from Inverell. So with family on opposites sides of the world, they decided to have two weddings, and I was lucky enough to be there to photograph their Australian ceremony. A flower-draped tea-length dress, gingham table runners with flowers in jam jars, a choreographed first dance, and a dress-up photo booth, their wedding oozed personality. I first caught up with Lisa and her lovely sister-in-law/bridesmaid Laura (better know to you Inverell locals as Miss Laura of Craze Dance Academy fame!), as they put the finishing touches on their preparations. A few beautiful bridal portraits, and then we left the girls to gather their thoughts as we headed to the Inverell Salavation Army hall for the lovely ceremony, before all the guests piled onto a bus to the Pioneer Village. And what a great spot for a party, and plenty of photo opportunities! Congratulations Tim & Lisa, and thank you for having me be part of your day.

Thia & Pete :: {wedding}

Cloudy, sunny, cloudy, sunny… The weather kept us guessing the whole way out to Moree, where we met the beautiful Lethia and her bridesmaids as they prepared for the ceremony. A whrlwind of activity, and everyone was dressed as we once more hit the road for the drive out to Garah. We caught up with Peter and the guys as they waited for the arrival of the bridal cars, before heading inside the church and watching as Lethia walked down the aisle on the arm of her very proud father. In the blink of an eye, the lovely ceremony was over, and we gathered outside for the family photos, with one eye cast skyward as the grey clouds threatened rain. As we loaded ourselves back in the car, and waited for the bridal party to lead the way to our location shoot, the first spots appeared on the windscreen. By the time we crossed the train tracks and left Garah behind us, the rain was pouring down. A few quick adjustments, and we found a nice dry spot to start the photos. Then as quickly as it came, the rain disappeared, and teh clouds gave way to bautiful blue sky.

 

They say it’s good luck to have rain on your wedding day, though I’m sure this gorgeous pair won’t need it! Congratulations guys, it was a pleasure to hang out with you and be a part of your special day.
