I feel like I need to explain myself.
Particularly to anyone who has enquired about me photographing their wedding, and I have advised them that I don’t shoot weddings.
I promise you, that is true and it was nothing personal.
This wedding, however, is and was very personal.
The groom was the first one to make me an Aunty.
It could be said that I practised my “Aunty” skills on him. (He will tell you I dropped him at 3-years-old down an escalator, but the truth is – he fell and I was unable to catch him!)
And I am grateful that he survived to be the gorgeous man that he is today!
It would be safe to say that I documented his life better than anyone else, until he got a mobile phone.
We have known his glorious Bride, Casey, since she was 17.
Casey is so incredibly loved by her family and ours. She is in my daughter’s top three of all favourite people.
She shines as bright as she did on this day as she does every day.
Casey’s heart is full of love, kindness and thoughtfulness.
We love her… like REALLY, REALLY, REALLY love her (the fact we love her is worth repeating…it wasn’t a mistake).
Their wedding was small, intimate and perfect. It was all planned in under 2 months, with heaps of help and support by all who love them. There were tears of joy, lots of laughing, lots of love and some really cool dancing. (My husband says I dance like Kath and Kim, and truthfully – I don’t see anything wrong with that!)
So here is to celebrating how loved these two are by all their family and friends!
