Happily ever after didn’t just start here for Katie and Brad
These two have been high school sweethearts for 10 years now. They were in no rush to get married at all, as it wasn’t going to be a massive change in their already established life together. But they were ready. More than ready. For the next exciting chapter in their lives together.
I photograph all of my weddings with all of my heart and love but shooting this wedding was a little different to all the others I have done before. I have known Katie since we were in grade 4. When I moved down to Ocean Grove she was one of my first friends living just around the corner from me. So this wedding was shot with just that extra little bit of nerves, love and excitment. It’s such an honour to be asked to be a part of someone’s wedding day, let alone someone that you’ve seen grow up and watch create this particular relationship.
Katie and Brad (or Katie should I say) was particularly indecisive when it came to planning their day. They didn’t want a big affair with all of the bells and whistles, they weren’t even going to be doing it in this country at one stage, they just wanted to get married. So they decided on having a beautiful intimate wedding with their closest friends and family by the beach near their home town.
Awww Katie…. you took my breath away. You look like heaven on hearth.
I’m sure I’ve said it a million times before but the most magical things happen in Autumn. My favourite season. Although it wasn’t a hard job to photograph this bunch…
Brad the love you have for Katie is so evident, especially in this photo. It gives me goosebumps.
This is my favourite. Katie was always the most sweetest girl. Such a pleasure to be around and such a gorgeous friendly face. This photo really shows all of those wonderful things.
This is myself and our group of girlfriends from high school. I don’t feel like we have changed one bit! No matter how long it is between catch ups, days, months, years, I really hope we can stay friends for the next chapter of our lives. I love you girls!
As the night went on speeches begun, stories were told, toasts were made, cake was cut, shots were had and best of all amazing dance moves were taking place…
Katie and Brad you don’t need any luck wished to you for the future because you both are obvious soul mates. I feel blessed to have been there to witness you both be married, it was such a romantic and fun day. Thank you so much for having me xxx
