something good


Driving home from today’s wedding – the first of three in a row – I was flicking between 3RRRFM and SEN on the radio, as is my wont.

But I wasn’t really listening to either station. Over and over, in my head, I was hearing Julie Andrews singing. Yes – THAT Julie Andrews.

“Somewhere in my youth… or childhood

I must have done something good…”

From The Sound of Music, naturally. You have already seen it. If you haven’t – go rent it. You will quickly realise how inspired film-making can transcend cliche – no, really, it is not just a classic, it’s great.

Anyway, the reason that line was going through my head is because I was driving home in this state of tired happy elation, this utter joy that everything had clicked. This was a day that I thought was going to be… tricky. Wrong time of day for photos, the forecast was for showers, all that.

But, somewhere in my youth or childhood, I must have done something good.

Because it was perfect. Craig and Fleur. The light. The day. The… everything.

Wow, I really love that high key portrait of her towards the beginning. Absolutely stunning. And the scale of the image of two them walking together is great as well.

Darin, the preview photos are absolutely amazing and really capture the fun, creativity and raw emotion we all felt on the day! Seeing each other like this really makes our hearts swell and we can't thank you enough. It was our honour that we could share it with you. Can't wait to see the rest of the pics! Lots of love, Craig & Fleur
