A wedding by nature, centers around emotion and significant moments, but there are some days that stick out above the rest – and this stunning Castlemaine wedding is one I will remember for a long time.
I was really excited to hear from Grant and James and the more details they gave me about their celebrations, the more I knew it was set to be an amazing day. Initially planning on holding a commitment ceremony, Grant and James were able to expand their plans to a full wedding celebration following the update to the marriage laws in Australia. It was such a special celebration and a huge privilege to photograph. With family and friends joining them from all over the world, the sunny afternoon and an incredible backdrop of the bush lands behind their gorgeous stone cottage location made for an exceptional party. We heard their stories of travel, some of the most sentimental vows I’ve heard, happy tears and a whole lot of laughter, I’m so grateful to have been asked along. James and Grant, I couldn’t be happier for you guys.
(And how cool are the kangaroos at the end?! An awesome way to introduce all your international guests to Australia!)
“James and I wanted to thank you for the beautiful pictures you took at our wedding. We really appreciated how it easy it was to deal with you and you captured the spirits of our wedding perfectly. We didn’t want lots of staged pictures, seeking instead more sneaky pics of us and guests enjoying the wedding… in a natural state. I’m happy to say that there are so many beautiful shots we’re having trouble sorting out which one’s we want to put into an album! You have such a wonderful eye for capturing the moment and we’re still not sure how you managed to get all those pics with the sun being so bright on the day! Anyway, thank you again and we’ll certainly be recommending to you our family and friends. James and Grant”
