Last month I was super lucky and got to travel to Sydney to photograph a wedding! It’s always been my dream to photograph in the long hazy evening light that Australia gets, so as you can imagine, I was rather excited! A little too excited maybe… as somehow I managed to turn up to Dunedin Airport without my passport… but that’s a whole other story! (thank god for Mum is all I’ll say….)
Cam and Bianca and I traveled the long road to the beautiful Blue Mountains on the Friday evening, the car bursting with flowers, table wear, suitcases and a cute little dog named Hendrix. As we wound our way up the gum tree lined mountain road, the sun dipped low across the plains below and I could see that if we were lucky the next day, I’d get that light I was hoping for. My Friday evening in the log cabin was spent analysing weather forecasts and eating chips, crossing fingers and praying to the weather gods.
All that wishing paid off and Saturday dawned a scorcher. Coming from Dunedin’s winter, the 26 degree heat was amazing, and I spent the morning purely loving walking around in jandals!
Bianca had flown in her family friend, a florist, to put together flowers for the wedding – and when I arrived to the lodge at Chapel Hill Retreat, the room was filled from corner to corner with every type of bloom you could imagine.
As Cam and the guests waited on the balcony overlooking Sydney, tears fell as Bianca walked up the aisle, and as the sun went down they became husband and wife.
Cam & Bianca, I just love you two. May many happy anniversaries await you xx
