Roy & Rosanna were married on a beautiful Spring day in November. Early on in their planning Rosanna hinted that she originally wanted to have her wedding at one of the beautiful grand catholic churches in Perth but months later she decided to change the ceremony venue to her own parish in Lockridge. I was really happy to hear that because I’ve always believed that the best choices you can make for your wedding day (venues included) are those that have a personal meaning. Sure you may lose some of that grandeur in the photos by getting married at your local parish but years down the track it’s probably not going to matter anyway. Really what matters most is how you felt and the people that shared the day with you.
Rosanna looked absolutely beautiful… electing to have her hair down in soft curls. Such a good choice, that was until we got to their reception venue at AQWA. We’d always planned on shooting at the beach and the areas around Hillarys but when we arrived in the afternoon, the wind was howling. Not that type of caressing breeze creating that gorgeous wind-swept look in photos where your hair is carried elegantly across your face. No… It was relentless and I’m grateful that Roy and Rosanna trusted me because every time I sent her out into the wind she’d come back looking like she’d been to battle and out she’d go again with each of my suggestions. So whilst we had to get back early to touch up (fix up) her hair and makeup, I think we came away with some beautiful images.
Here are some of my favourites to give you a taste of the day.
Thanks to Adrian Tan and Joshua Hew for shooting with me on the day.
