Cassie and John hired me to photograph their wedding in December 2010. A lovely, loving young couple, with some great fun, contemporary, yet at the same time, retro ideas for their ceremony.
It was a casual, sunset wedding held in the front garden of their home, with the reception in the backyard. John is an artist, and had created the decorations for the house, and “badges” for the wedding party consisting of painted cardboard birds of all shapes and colours, but mostly red birds, which was the theme for the wedding. Cassie’s dress was an delicate old-style one found online, and her posy was small with herbs and edible flowers.
The ceremony was carried out by Merrilyn Williams from Celebrate Life, and she made sure that the couples’ personalities and beliefs were catered for. It was real a pleasure working with Merrilyn again, this being my third wedding with her at the helm.Tags: bird, bride, Cassie and John, flowers, heart, posy, wedding
