This was a really cool wedding to photograph. Why? I think from the moment I turned up it was like photographing a friends wedding. There were some familiar faces from past weddings that I’d covered but it was more than that.
The complete day was being celebrated at Rafferty’s Resort at Lake Macquarie which meant that it wasn’t going to be a hectic day for anyone. No need to worry too much about times, beating the traffic, upsetting a waiting priest or an anxious chef – it was set to be a great day from the beginning and I guess that’s exactly what Kate had in mind when making the plans for this day. On top of that, the weather was PERFECT.
The complete day went off without a hitch.The guys were organised, on time and were quick to have a laugh and a joke. The girls all looked gorgeous and Kate, WOW – I could photograph her every day and never get enough of her amazing eyes. Stunning.
The garden ceremony with the lake as a backdrop was picture perfect. The atmosphere was pure happiness.
We had a two minute drive to Catherine Hill Bay for a relaxed location shoot with beautiful light, a few drinks for the bridal party and plenty of laughs.
The reception was a blur of fantastic food, great speeches, loud music and plenty of dancing.
What a day – I was lucky to be a part of it.
