Lauren and Curtis' Wedding

I couldn't have thought of a better wedding to start off a brand new year with. Lauren and Curtis had planned a vintage themed wedding, complete with retro dresses, a gorgeous old convertible,  funky record invites and a wonderful splash of red. I love photographing something different and fun and this was certainly right up there. The day had been a very hot one, although by the time 4.30pm arrived we had some thick cloud the time 6pm rolled around we had a full blown dust storm with gale force winds on our hands! Of course this occurred just as we were about to head out and do some shots of the bridal party around Coriander. We waited for the main part of the storm to blow over and then everyone was very brave and ventured out into the weather...although I must admit we did take all of the images sheltered behind two shed. This didn't stop the wind whipping in and playing havoc with the poor girls full skirts though! What a wonderful bridal party though, to not complain and still manage to have loads of fun and laughs along the way. I must also mention the personal vows that Lauren and Curtis exchanged...they were so honest, heartfelt, true, special  and funny...just what I think your lives will be like together. Never dull, that's for sure! Thank you both so much for trusting me to capture your amazing day.

Ceremony, Reception and Cake: Coriander  Hair: Crystal Mifsud

What an amazing idea....the invitation on an old record!

Another beautiful idea....Lauren asked everyone to bring along a flower to the wedding. These were then made up into bouquets for Lauren and her two bridesmaids by two clever friends. Wonderful!

The wind played along perfectly so we could recreate the Marilyn shot! The poor girls actually had quite a bit of trouble keeping those gorgeous dresses under control!
