The morning weather started out ominous-looking after yesterday's downpour, but luckily the heavens parted and left us with a glorious, if not slightly humid afternoon. The ceremony and reception took place at Uni House at ANU. After the beautiful ceremony, which had emotion and fun mixed together, Leah and Craig and best mates M&M, a.k.a Michael and Mel, took off for photos. We had plenty of time to explore several locations which gave us breathing room to create some great photos. We headed to the rose gardens of O.P.H. where they had planned to be wed initially before the threat of rain, and then to the portrait gallery, before taking a romantic walk along the water at Nara Park and finishing off at National Film & Sound Archives. The couple were a joy to be around and at ease in front of the camera, which made my job easy.
Autumn & Gareth got some 'unlucky' Fall weather, with a large incessant cloud leaving buckets of rain over the normally parched landscape. Really, it's a nice consolation prize that rain is actually a good omen of a great marriage to come! Certainly that is a given with this couple, even without the rain. The ceremony took place at Lanyon Homestead and went off well under the confined cover of the veranda, with two aisles used to create an interesting 'V' formation. It became an intimate affair, as people passed the rings around and made wishes of happiness for the couple. Despite the rain and muck, Autumn threw caution to the wind and her then clean, white dress into the elements for our photos, and the rest of the party followed. With a slight reprieve from above (and some waterproof camera gear), we were able to use the outdoor scenery before heading into the marquee tent for the reception.
