Seven months ago, when Bridie asked me to shoot her wedding, I was very, very, very, happy. Not only because it will give me the opportunity to discover a new place: The Yarra Valley, one of the finest Pinot Noir regions from one of my countries (just behind Burgundy ;)), but because I first met Bridie 7 years ago when she was a bridesmaid at her sister’s wedding.
I often shoot ‘sister’, ‘bridesmaid’, ‘cousin’, ‘friend of the mum of the sister of the cousin’ weddings, but I think that it is the first time that there is such a long time in between the two weddings. And yet, I remember Michaela&Hamish’s wedding very well. Seven years ago, I was still shooting in films and one of the reasons that I remember it so well was that I passed hours in the dark room to create those black&white prints that are now framed in the parents’s house.
It was so great to see everyone again; to go back to the same parents’ house and recognise the spots where I did the shoot many years ago; to meet Michaela&Hamish’s kids and see how the toddler from the old photo is now a big girl (the flower girl). And once again, witness a beautiful family event.
So to Bridie, the Bride, here is the photo-story of Bridie&Rob’s big day.
Ceremony and reception at: Zonzo, Yarra Valley, Victoria
Enjoy the photos!
