Jacob + Sarah

October 25th, 2014

The life of the wife of a wedding photographer is a lonely one.  Friday nights, Saturdays, Saturday nights, Sundays – all booked, all with weddings.  I guess it’s a little bit like marrying a sailor – at least in September and October it is!  At least he doesn’t come home smelling all fishy like the sea and often comes home with a slice of that ever magical wedding cake.  So it’s not all bad.  But I guess it lends itself to me working on those days that he is away.  Which is how you find me here, at my keyboard, on a Saturday night.

We met Sarah and Jacob at an open night at our favourite venue, Moda Events Portside.  We had a great chat and I remember thinking that these guys were our people.  You know similar outlook, same sense of fun,, a perfect match.  It wasn’t too long before they came in, met with Jason again and booked us for their photography.

I always get a thrill when our couples book us – it really makes me feel so honoured and happy that they trust us to be there on their wedding day.  It’s a pretty big deal (as you guys all know) and it’s still a pretty big deal for me, all these years later, when each of you book with us.

Sarah and Jacob had been together a little over six years before Jacob proposed in the Margaret River.  Sarah, not one to let a task go on too long, took up the challenge to plan a wedding in only 7 months!!!  Don’t let anyone tell you it can’t be done because this wedding went off without a hitch.  The only nerves were around the dress, which arrived 3 weeks before the wedding – phew!

Sarah and Jacob also had dance lessons before the wedding (it can be a bit tricky on the day in a wedding dress and heels!)  But it all worked out though and resulted in every guest grooving on the dance floor from the moment they were able!

Thanks again guys for choosing us – it really was a day to remember!

All of the boys suits were by Wil Valor.  I think they look mighty dashing too!

Sarah’s dress was by Stella York, her shoes were Alan Pinkus, the bridesmaids were dressed in Goddess by Nature.  Very romantic in shades of pink to complement the bouquets and flowers by Florabella Design.

Sarah got ready at the apartments at Quay West.  Just look at the light!  Her makeup and hair was by the always amazing girls from The Powder Room.

The ceremony was held at Newstead House on the river in the rotunda.  It was such a beautiful day!  It was officiated by celebrant Vanessa Linn from Butterfly Ceremonies.

I have to say that Moda Events Portside looked stunning on the night.  Amazing!

Sarah and Jacob surprised their guests with fireworks at the cake cutting.  The guys are Fireworx are professional fire-heads and can’t get enough of the hot, sparkly stuff so give them a call if you are looking for that WOW factor.  It’s pretty spectacular!

Brad + Susie

March 11th, 2014

I’m pretty sure if you have been visiting here for a long time you will know that we are certified ‘dog people’.  Not that there is anything wrong with cats, but, if push came to shove, both Jason and I would choose a tail-wagging, bone-chewing, running-in-circles-just-because-you-are-home dog.  I have often wondered if we don’t subconsciously attract other ‘dog people’, as clients particularly, given how many of them have their dogs feature in their weddings!  It is a tribe we all belong to, the Dog Club, or the DC.  Maybe we should get a special handshake and a club (dog?) house.  We didn’t have Crinkle when we got married but I know I would have included her somehow.  It would feel wrong not too!  She’s such a part of our family I couldn’t imagine her sitting at home missing out on all the fun and pats and, inevitable treats.  Brad and Susie are not only part of our club but they are card carrying, fully paid members.  I have never seen a bride let her dog, Cooper, sit on her dress before the ceremony, she also let him jump up on her dress at the signing of the register, Brad even held him in his lap for pictures!  All I can say is Brad and Susie are truly good sorts.  The best kind of sort.  Oh, and (because this is a real wedding post after all) they are in love, like the real kind of love – you know the kind that will drive in the pouring rain to four different grocery stores to get the right kind of juice that you believe (foolishly) has magical powers and will cure your sore throat.  Or stand around for three full hours while you try on every dress, jumpsuit, outfit combination in the shop – some even TWICE – trying to work out which makes you look skinny, which bag, shoes, coat they will go with for your best friend’s party.  That kind of love.  The good kind of love.  Maybe I have figured something out here – Dog Club people = Good sort people = Good love people!  Brad and Susie.  Good Dog Sort Love People!
