Sarah & Shehan - April 24th

A celebration of love and two families coming together: that's what weddings are about to me and this day certainly was true to that. There were lots of family and friends, as well as brights colours that pleased the eye. The bridemaids spiced up the photos with their saris, which reflect Shehan's Sri Lankan background. The ceremony at Old Parliament House got pushed inside by some wind and rain, but the bridal party were adventurous and we managed to fit lots of great outdoor photos into the end of the day while luckily avoiding getting dripped on by the ominous clouds. We played around at the Canberra Railway Museum and then Canberra Glassworks before heading to the Rydges Lakeside Hotel for the reception.

The bridal party surprised everyone, including me, with their impromptu reception entrance routine, reminiscent of the JK wedding entrance video on Youtube. Sarah & Shehan finished off with their James Bond-like antics.

Their surprise 'chariot' awaited them outside the hotel, which was actually a decorated wheelbarrow. So they took it for a spin around the block!

The fun night finished off with waves good-bye as the happy couple drove off in their actual get-away vehicle...

Vicki & Nigel - April 17th

These two were a ton of fun on the day, and we captured some great moments because of it. The bridal party were hamming it up all day and had me laughing so often it was hard to stay focused at times (me, not the camera). They were up for anything and we even squeezed in some 'edgy' photos in Civic with the graffiti wall which were really cool. The ceremony took place beside the lake at Nara Park with reception at the Hellenic Club.

This shot got published in the Canberra Times, thanks to Nigel's father submitting it after seeing it on my Facebook photo page (the article is posted there as well). It turned out to be a topical coincidence that I took the photo just as the Iceland volcano was first erupting and the couple were heading to Europe for their honeymoon (which luckily worked out in the end).

They had an old-school photo booth at the reception. Cool idea!
