On the first rain seen this August, I was honoured to capture the ceremony of Wendy and Myles. It has been an incredibly hot summer, filled with beauty but also destructive fires and smoke. The morning of the wedding we finally saw a little rain!! Although many couples would be upset by the wet weather after so much sunshine… it was the opposite for this family. The damp morning would clear the skies of smoke and help dampen the forrest first, making way for regrowth, new beginnings… perfect way to begin a life together!
Of course it wouldn’t be a wedding without a few hiccups. The ceremony location was to provide some seating, but in a short period of time you can see family all arriving with chairs. I love seeing things come together like this! It’s what a wedding day should be about. Family, friends and coming together to witness a marriage, but also to show we are all here together to help support each other!
When I met Myles and Wendy, they both said that the most important thing for them is their family. They did not want a lot of photos or time spent on them, but to capture the people they love with them. This is what we did!! Capturing a wedding isn’t always about spending hours following them around. This was perfectly captured in only 3 hours. The ceremony, family and a few of the reception to send them into the evening of fun!
Please raise your glass with me to celebrate the life these two have just embarked on! Congratulations!
