ROD + KATE

PORTRAITS

My fave thing about weddings is all the funny versions of how couples met, their adventures and seeing the complete joy on everyone’s face as they celebrate love.

Rod + Kate went to school together here in Forbes, went their separate ways across the country – a few different versions of the story here – and it all ended up back in Forbes..madly in love 10 years on.

They tied the knot at the gorgeous Eat Your Greens in Eugowra surrounded by many of their nearest and dearest. They were super casual and just wanted to have fun, celebrate, eat good food, dance and have a drink or 10.

BRIDGET + BEN

WEDDINGS

Wow, what a wedding!
Bridget and Ben had an incredible surprise wedding surrounded by their (suprised!) loved ones including their 6 children they share between them.

6pm – Guests arrived
6.30pm – Bridget ducked into the office at the Forbes Inn with her children to inform them that the wedding was NOW. Super sweet, lots of happy tears!
Quickly get changed into bridal attire.
Meanwhile Ben is popping a suit on in the function room.
6.50pm – SURPRISE, Ben announced “come on guys, come through to the function room, Bridge and I are getting MARRIED right now!” and the rest was history.

It was so much fun to be apart of. Incredible (teary) speeches, many laughs and a few too many beers. I hope my very small snippet of their day does justice to just how magical it really was.

BABY PENELOPE

Little freshie Penelope Jane is so sweet, I love her sleepy, squishy new-ness.
Big sister Delilah wasn’t impressed that she couldn’t constantly hold her precious little sister.

RICKY + TRIN

WEDDINGS

WOW, so I got to photograph my first ‘first look’ because these two lovebirds caught up before they said their I do’s. Rick’s response was ‘why are your flowers bigger than mine’ and ‘it’s bloody hot in this jacket’. Accompanied by a big smile, which told us all he thought his wifey to be was stunning even if he didn’t have the words.

The Old Parkes Convent was all glammed up and doused in florals, with classy vintage touches and filled with their nearest and dearest. Live music, laughter, drinks, delicious food, great company and many happy tears is what weddings are made of!

Rick + Trin have two beautiful, cheeky kids together who were so thrilled to be included; Hamish took his ring bearer job very seriously and should have had a name badge calling him ‘ring security’.

ASHLEE + ASHER

WEDDINGS

What a special two, ASH + ASH … since they met three years ago at the pub on New Years Eve they have been inseparable. I  loved watching their two families come together to celebrate! They got married on a gorgeous property in Grenfell, surrounded by hills, crops and gorgeous roses. The hayfever was intense, nearly as much as the strong winds and those black clouds that hung above our heads-as soon as the ceremony was over the storm passed!
Asher’s face lit up when he seen his bride and the tears strolled down, their ceremony was a total celebration of their love.
Ashley’s Dad used a chux cloth to wipe his tears, I just have to mention this because I found it hilarious.
