the wedding… finally! ;)
For exactly one year everyone has been asking to see photos from the infamous day when “m&m” became “mr. & mrs. m&m.”
On the 25th of February 2010 I got to marry the most amazing man I’ve ever met at the WA Waterski Park in Baldivis. Together and with our dogs we have shared some of the most memorable moments here. It is a place we go to relax, to laugh, to re-connect, to play and to hide from the world and just “be.”
As much as we love photographing the grandeur of weddings and receptions we wanted something that reflected our down to earth personalities. Mostly, we wanted to play. Play is so important to us and we want to maintain the playfulness of life and love as long as we can. Our wedding had to reflect that!
And so, we decided on a morning ceremony on the jetty at the lake that has seen us waterskiing with dear friends, celebrating holidays with our dogs and playing in the sunshine. It is here that we most often share in laughter, love and friendship. After the morning ceremony we went off for photos and returned in board shorts and celebrated with our friends while waterskiing, relaxing and bbq’ing. I couldn’t have dreamed of a better wedding.
Marty and I would like to take this opportunity to thank two of the most amazing photographers for capturing our day, Kirsty and Lauren. Your images are truly gifts and we could never express our gratitude sufficiently. Not only did you endure a 42.5C degree day, but you did it with laughter and creativity that is unparalleled. Thank you from the very bottom of our hearts and souls!
I also want to thank the very sweet Trish for doing my hair. You cannot know how special of a place you have in my heart for having done this for me. Trish is amazing and such a calming effect on a wedding day!
Another special thank you goes to our Celebrant Victoria. I’ve worked with Victoria many times and I love the energy and zest she brings to a ceremony. I couldn’t have imagined having anyone else marry us. She loves knowing her couples and her ceremonies are personal and beautiful. Her words and input are treasured by us and we are proud to call her a friend.
Thanks also to Frank for escorting us and his hospitality in using the venue, to the boys for helping set up, to Jen for your help and friendship and to everyone else who helped make the day so special. A special thanks to our furry boys, Yogi and BooBoo for being our ring bearers and to Ralph and Suzs for assisting them and being our friends. We also want to express our appreciation to Chris & Anne for printing our Invitations and to
To our dear friends and family around the globe who could not make it to share in our day, please know that we felt your love just the same! It isn’t the same as having been there, but we hope you enjoy some images of the day. If anyone couldn’t tell, I was VERY happy to marry the man of my dreams. Not even that intense heat could melt the smile off my face. ;)
To Marty… thanks for walking into my shop that day and changing my life for the better. You amaze me and a year and a bit later I love you even more!
Thanks to everyone who helped make this day so special and memorable. We love you all and your friendships!
