Well, Weddings are not something I photograph a lot of as a Commercial Photographer, but they are fun. There is something magical about sharing the happiest day of a couples life (to date) with them, even if it is through a camera lens. Catching fleeting moments so that the couple will have something to remember once the adrenalin and excitement of the big day has worn off. The Photographs become the memories.
Matt and Steph’s wedding was to be a fabulous day. It was held at the family homestead on the banks of Lake Somerset, to the west of Brisbane, QLD, where Matt grew up. The couple had returned from their current home in the UK only days before the wedding to share their day with friends and family. The whole wedding was styled by the couple and had super cute personal touches and themes throughout. It’s nice to see a very personal wedding when big, over the top fancy weddings are so popular.
The bridal transport was Matt’s Dad’s restored FX holden, which ran as nicely as it looked.
The fantastic feast of food was cooked in camp ovens and the guys spent all day slaving away over hot camp fires to feed everyone. The food was truly fabulous and more than plenty to go around.
Steph was a stunning sight to behold, sporting a beautiful gown, a lovely home-made bouquet sourced from wild flowers growing on the property. Her fingers were adorned with family heirlooms, passed down through the generations as she prepared herself in the other homestead on the property for her big day.
A big Thankyou to Sara from Sassi Photography for having me along to share in Matt and Steph’s special day.
