Wedding Memories

6 Feb

Happy Sunday morning (or whatever day and time it is at your place) everyone ♥

I thought i’d share with you a little trip down memory lane, back to my wedding day.

It was the middle of winter – July 25 2009, and we “eloped” to a magical old house in Tasmania, Australia. Our only guests were The Mr’s sister who was a witness, and a dear friend of mine who flew across from Melbourne and both photographed and witnessed the wedding too.

Being so unused to having photos taken as opposed to being the photo taker freaked me out! For that reason, and so we could show our families every little facet of our day, i wanted lots of shots of “the little things”, which my friend did an excellent job of.

We wrote each other letters which we read before the ceremony

The Mr’s sister (oh look, a bit of poetry) helped him get ready before waiting for me at the chapel…

…While i took a few moments to reflect.

And then it was time. As i walked down the red carpet aisle with candles all the way down, i saw him and we both smiled through our (happy) tears.

And then it was done. After a kiss to seal the deal, we celebrated with a glass of champagne before having a little moment to ourselves.

I wore purple shoes for the ceremony, and changed into pink gumboots for trudging around for photos!

We were even lucky enough to have peacocks there on our magical day!

We were spoilt for choice when it came to scenic spots for photos ♥

We had our first dance in a courtyard surrounded with vines, lost in the moment and no need for music ♥

And then we braved the weather and went down to the beach 🙂

It was an amazing day ♥

The beautiful photography was done by my lovely friend Clare, of Clare Metcalf Photography ♥

    Such beautiful pictures! The POV is amazing and the composition of the initial ones is so unique. I would love to have my wedding in such a scenic place where the only gatecrashers (or guests!) are peacocks 😀

    Beautiful photos! I’ve enjoyed these so much. And then, you mentioned your wedding was on Tasmania. We are from the US but we have actually BEEN to Tasmania. We stayed at Cradle Mountain Lodge and hiked through the national park there. It was beautiful and so are these superb photos!
