Laura and I attended the same wedding (as guests) back in 2008. It was at Hyde Park on a gorgeous November afternoon as we celebrated with friends and family. Except I didn’t notice her and quite possibly she didn’t notice me either. I was 3 weeks out from getting married myself and had lots of things on my mind. Namely a hair curling attempt that went very wrong … but that’s for another time and place. Skip forward 9 years and bam! There is Laura is calling me about the fact she was getting married! We reminisced about old times, like how our parents are travel buddies and the fact we don’t remember ever actually meeting each other.
We finally did meet when Laura and Jake came down to Perth on a whirlwind weekend adventure, them trying to fit in a number of wedding related appointments and me trying to find the time and baby sitting arrangements needed as I was actually booked to shoot a wedding down in Yallinyup that same weekend. Not even terrible peak hour traffic on a Friday afternoon could stop us. We met, took photos and talked about all their plans. And then, all of a sudden, they were back in Perth but this time they would go back home as husband and wife.
Their wedding day was smooth sailing from the get go. I believe that had a lot do with the organisational brilliance and stylist extraordinaire that is Dawn of Luxx Weddings and Events. Every detail was styled smoothly and effortlessly. It was glorious! Laura looked stunning in her Kenneth Wilson gown. She was so relaxed when I arrived in time for final preparation shots, ready to get the party started! Her smile didn’t leave her all day – in fact it just got bigger when she walked down the aisle and saw Jake. #swoon
Guys, thanks for an amazing wedding and trusting me with your most special day! I loved every single minute.
