Have you met Clare?

20 Apr

Clare of Clare Metcalf Photography is a dear friend of mine, who happens to be a fabulous photographer in Melbourne, Australia. Her unique style is natural and fresh, and always captures the essence of the event or subject.


Not only is she talented, but she is also incredibly versatile – she can switch from wedding photography to children’s photography in a flash (Pun intended).

A few months ago i posted some photos from our wedding – Clare flew to Tasmania to be one of our witnesses and photograph our day. You can see the blog post Here.

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 ♥

5 thoughts in my head…

13 Jan

1. The electrician coming this afternoon had better not open my wardrobe. He may never be seen again under the avalanche of clothes and pillows and shoes hastily thrown in there in anticipation of his arrival.

2. I have newfound respect for Anna Bligh . She has reinforced my pride in being a Queenslander.

3. Can’t stop planning and getting excited for our 2nd wedding anniversary trip.

4. Badinage is my word of the day.

5. Feeling a little uninspired photography wise. Hopefully that will change when the sun finally comes out.
