As I type this here in the UK, it’s currently cold and drizzly outside. So I thought my next blog should be that of Maria & Rob all the way down under, in sunny Australia!
This was an incredible dream come true for me; to be booked to shoot a wedding in Australia, the absolute top country to visit on my extensive list. But it was actually even more special – the bride and I were pretty much born next to each other just days apart. Our Mum’s became buddies and Maz soon became one of my very first friends!
Our lives went in different directions as we grew up, quite literally to the other side of the world… So when I heard from Maz one morning, now living in Sydney enquiring about wedding photography – more specifically, if I would be interested in going to Australia to photograph hers… my jaw dropped, my head spun & I didn’t achieve anything else useful for the rest of the day! After many emails of working things out, it soon became apparent that it was time to book my flights!!
A few months later I arrived on the stunning Magnetic Island, just off the coast of Townsville. It was complete paradise. My arms didn’t appreciate the amount of pinches I gave myself to make sure it was all real. The next day, I met with Maz and her hubby to be, Rob, and we shot their pre-wedding photos on Horseshoe Bay…
Keep your eyes on this blog over the next couple of days to see how their beautiful beach wedding went down… 🙂
