Michael + Erin

February 13th, 2015

So tomorrow is Valentine’s Day.  Great if you have someone who you love, and who loves you, AWFUL if you are alone.  I’ve spent MANY (possibly more than I care to remember) a Valentine’s Day by myself, tub of ice-cream, watching TV.  Sometimes you can rally a few girlfriends together and get out for dinner to laugh in the face of such fake romance.  But mainly it’s just you.  And the really stinker is that you  feel lonely on a day that you probably wouldn’t feel lonely on, except that it is Valentine’s Day.  However I’m thinking that it shouldn’t be all that bad.  Why not think of it as one more day closer to finding your perfect match.  It happens out of the blue, you know?  Meeting that person you want to join forces with and head into the unknown.  For me, it was at a housewarming party, for some friends of mine it was when they were 16, and for some other friends they were in their 60s.  You just never know when you will meet and when you will connect, how it will happen.  You gotta be ready for it.  From the beaming happy faces of Erin and Mick it really reminds you that this kind of true love exists.  There was such happiness and laughter at this wedding that it filled every frame.  St Valentine’s Day may land on the 14th of February every year but Mr V must hang around close for those other 364 days working, plotting, scheming and connecting you to that one true love of your life.  Enjoy tomorrow everybody, cause what would this world be without L.O.V.E.

Paul + Annina

October 3rd, 2014

Can you feel it?  Summer is on its way!  The days are getting warmer, the nights, almost balmy. For some unknown reason to me, this winter has been hard.  Too cold, too dark, too…something.  Normally I dread the summer with its long, hot, sticky days but I can tell you this summer is going to be good!  My plan is to spend all of my time on the beach – plan?  Maybe dream, you know what I mean.  But before summer starts to really shine you get spring, her sexier, sweeter cousin.  And when you work in wedding photography, nothing heralds spring than wedding season.  I mean how could you not want to get married in this weather, with all its blue skies, bright sunshine, cool breezes?  So today on a gorgeous, simply perfect day, I give you Paul and Annina and their lovely, love-filled wedding.  With their ceremony held on the lawn of the Powerhouse and their cocktail reception just inside, Paul and Annina were aiming for a fun and casual wedding focussing on making it easy on their guests and giving them maximum time to party!  They were married by the one and only Paul Voge Marriage Celebrant who, a part from being an all round awesome guys, is an photographer’s dream by popping out of frame at those crucial, photo-worthy moments.  You may not be able to see him but I can assure you, he was there!  Annina’s dress was by Bertossi Brides, her spring flowers by Flower Lovers and her gorgeous hair and makeup by those super professionals, The Powder Room.

As you all now about my L.O.V.E. for any and all dogs, this here is Rueben.  He’s mighty awesome and features heavily in the wedding.  I’m happy to babysit this dude anytime, anywhere.  That face, GAH!

The stunning blackboard is by the always fabulous but better-get-in-quick-or-you’ll-miss-out, Blackboard Artworkx.  The lovely pot of daisies were for Annina’s dad who passed away a few years ago.  My mother was a lover of daisies too and now that she too has passed, I think it is such a lovely sentiment.  I’m sure your dad was there in spirit, Annina.

A CHEESE CAKE!!!!!! That is a cake made entirely of cheese.  Anyone who knows me well, knows of my love of cheese.  Any type, I’m not fussy.  So this new trend is rocking my world.  Paul and Annina’s version was made by Colin James Fine Foods.  I’m not sure who did their gorgeous cake topper but leave a comment if you want to know and I’ll ask.  Paul and Annina coupled this cheese cake with a ham bar.  Does anything go better than ham and cheese?  I mean, really??


Paul and Annina had a visitor’s book that consisted of hand written comments form guests and silly polaroids.

The band that got THIE PARTY STARTED was Radio Club Band.  Versatile, professional, fun – these guys can get your granny to get down!!!!  Funktastic!

Something totally unexpected and tremendous that Paul and Annina did was commission Soymilk Weddings to do an animation of their love story.  Not only is it a gorgeous keepsake from the day, it wowed their guests!  I simply love it – so please take the time to see “Paul and Annina – How it all came to be!”
