I have a feeling you may be seeing some more of Emma. Shoes, she takes pretty damn seriously. Life - not so much.

kirsty & paul

weddings

Kirsty & Paul got married on the very last day of winter. It felt like the start of something, not the end, though. There was a lot going on. Nylon stockings. Hand made vases. Curlers.Every piece of crockery was collected by Kirsty and Paul. There were dance lessons. Home made dresses. It was amazing. It all happened at the Boyd Baker House - a beautiful venue, with a very particular feel. Mostly, though, there was Kirsty and Paul. Getting married. Celebrating the day they made it official. There was a lot of joy. Lots of tears. Details are great. But the story, always, is the people.

They were having too much fun. So, there are no sunset portraits in an olive grove. Just kids having fun. ...

weddings

Lauren and Mark had a completely perfect wedding. Apart from a spot of rain. And by a spot, I mean stupendously torrential rain. But in Melbourne, when it rains, you get a few moments when the rain eases. The sun breaks through the storm clouds. It feels... like a stolen moment. Like a surreal backdrop. It always makes me pause, and usually makes me wish I had a camera with me. When Lauren and Mark got married, it poured alright. But for those few moments, when Lauren was crossing the field on her way to her wedding, the storm took a breath. Paused a moment. And the sun shone, just briefly. This time, I did have my camera. ...

hayley & paul

weddings

It was a day of sun and wind, of wild flowers and hand made signs. There was Australian hospitality. British humour. Vintage spoons. Heirloom veils. A lot of laughter. A lot of love. This is Hayley and Paul's wedding day.
