Happy Valentines Day! A perfect excuse to share another wedding with you.
Ah, young love. Being somewhat of spring chicken myself, I started out photographing people older than me. It wasn’t long until my friends started getting married, and all of a sudden I feel like I’m the one taking her time, as PYTs (ask Michael Jackson) everywhere are tying the knot and bringing down that national average. Good on them I reckon – when you’re onto a good thing, you know it.
Joel and Verity are just that – a good thing. Cute as buttons and with plenty of plans for their future together. I was really excited to be a part of their day, having known Joel and his family for a good number of years – my Mum and I both worked with his Dad when I was in uni. I also loved that these kids were pretty happy to do silly things like play on playgrounds and hang out at railway stations.
With lots of DIY touches and contributions from friends and family, the day was truly a representation of two kids in love. Verity’s friend Paul, aka Paulo Sebastian designed and made all the girl’s dresses, and another lent the cars. Their reception was held at Sunnybrae Function Centre.
Joel is also a total romantic. Verity’s favourite movie is Love Actually, and had mentioned more than once how much she loved the surprise band in the wedding scene. ‘As if that would ever happen,’ said Joel. At the church, while we were waiting for Verity to arrive, Joel made sure to tell me he had a surprise up his sleeve and to be ready with the camera as they turned to walk down the aisle. Thank goodness he did, because as the band on the balcony started to play, Verity lost it.
After all, all you need is love.
