bridget & tim | collingwood children’s farm wedding
weddings , 14/09/2015
I took a lot away from Bridget & Tim’s wedding. I learnt that no matter the weather, a good time could be had by all. I learnt that a beautiful bride that refuses to take herself seriously made for a brilliant portrait session. It re-affirmed my notion that Jonny Von Goes – JVG – is clearly one of Melbourne’s most involving and stimulating celebrants, no matter the weather. I found out that a red and blue are a fantastic colour combo. I already knew that it wasn’t the size of the wedding, but the appetite for fun that makes a difference – but Bridget and Tim’s reception, at the Collingwood Children’s Farm, was a wonderful affirmation. Tears notwithstanding.
And I found out that sometimes, when you want to get married under a tree strung with fairy lights, the oh so fickle weather gods of Melbourne will smile, and make the rain stop, for just long enough.
It wasn’t a glorious day because of the rain. It was just a glorious day. I need to give a quick nod to Ozzy Osbourne, too – the very last frame was totally inspired by Black Sabbath’s first album. Awesomely fun wedding and an homage to the birth of Heavy Metal. I can get behind that.
