I generally don’t blog non wedding work here but today I’ve made an exception.
The Age newspaper here in Melbourne asked me to document some Easter Sunday church services for a feature they were doing on the celebration of Easter and given that one the churches I was asked to attend I’d shot a wedding there the week before it seemed only fitting I share these images with you.
At 6am I arrived at St Pauls cathedral for their dawn candlelit service, it was beautiful with the cathedral only being lit by the candles the 100 or so people had lit on their way in. Later that morning it was the ‘Planet Shakers’ a big, slick rock n roll show/sermon playing to around 2000 people indispersed with bit sized bits of eulogy, smoke machines, loud music and along with Jesus Christ there were lots of Easter egg references. Christianity certainly comes in all shapes and sizes.
In the aftermath of Melbourne’s most severe storm in many a year, nearly high school sweethearts Greg and Susan married at the the beautiful and ornate Butleigh Woottan in Kew.
What a beautiful heartfelt wedding! Everyone had a ball, the speeches were moving and Susan and Greg radiated a generosity of spirit and fun that was totally infectious. Susan’s now departed father was there in spirit with a framed picture of him sitting in the middle of the bridal table, it was beautiful.
All the best to you in your life together. It was an honour and privilege to capture your wedding day!

Yes Lovelies the footy is back and kicks off tomorrow night with the Carlton v Richmond clash at the ‘G’
Football (Australian rules) supporters here passion knows no limits and witness Nick, a fanatical Carlton (blues) follower who shamelessly used his wedding night as part of the unrelenting quest to convert Jill, his beautiful Stateside bride and recent arrival to Australia to imbue his passion for the Carlton football club.
I think he was saying ‘I love you, I’m so glad you married me and go Blues’
There’s something in the air. Haley is the 3rd bride I’ve photographed in 9 months from Canada or USA and has fallen in love with an Australian fella.
They met in Vancouver through mutual friends where Ash was on a working holiday. A farewell party was held for Ash was leaving on a 6am flight back to Sydney, at 2am Ash got plucked up his courage and got Haley into the kitchen where he proceeded to tell her he had ‘feelings’ for her, Haley then proceeded to call him an ‘jerk’ because he was leaving in 4 hours and how dare he abandon her now! Ash got as far as New York on his way back to Sydney then decided he had to go back to Vancouver to be with Haley. It was special…Very special.
With the insurance payout following an accident where Ash totaled Haley’s car Haley decided to join Ash on his trip to Sydney where they got married and now live.
Thanks so much for having me capture your special day, it was an honour and a pleasure to share it with you.
