All Melburnians know never to bet on the weather. In the week leading up to Leanne and Lincoln’s wedding at Zonzo’s Train Trak winery we had gale force winds, thunder and even hail. We kept checking the weather forecast all the way up to Friday morning, ready with gumboots and brollies just in case. We had no reason to worry, the only thing brighter than the beautiful sunny day was the smile on Leanne’s face as she married her sweetheart Lincoln.
Following the perfect outdoor ceremony overlooking the vines, guests entered the reception that was filled to the brim with beautiful flowers from Wunderplant – while we took Lincoln and Leanne down to the train track and photographed this beautiful couple, completely smitten, in the late afternoon light.
Thank you Leanne and Lincoln for having us on the day xx
Part of being wedding photographers is being with couples when they are freshly engaged and planning their wedding. Most are giddy with excitement and want to make every part of the day perfect. Sometimes they even ask us about what makes a wedding so special. We tell them it’s a combination of things- a couple so in love it’s infectious, friends and family bursting with joy, and small details and moments that give a personal touch. In the future we won’t have to explain it, just show the photos of Mark and Justine’s wedding. A day filled with love and laughter. A truly perfect day.
You hear the phrase ” happiest day of my life” thrown around quite a bit, especially on wedding days. Happiness shows itself in different ways – some express their love intensely, others give each other a shy smile when they meet down the aisle. Alice and Brosie were a couple who literally did not stop smiling and laughing from the second they saw one another over the beautiful outdoor aisle at the picturesque Terindah Estate in Bellarine.
From then on the whole day was about laughter and fun, with the couple entertaining guests with a professionally choreographed dance routine to the song ”Love Serenade” by The Waifs. Celebrations didn’t stop at the dance as the reception moved onto Little Blue Pavilion on the St Kilda Pier and they danced the warm summer’s night away.
The song’s lyrics said “ Honey I’m sitting on top of the world, just thinking about you” words that could not have summed up Alice and Brosie’s wedding day better.
Part of being a photographer is being able to make people feel comfortable. The best shots come in the moments people are genuinely happy and relaxed, especially when photographing couples. Julz and Jamie are one couple who certainly didn’t need any help in the being happy and relaxed department. Both of them were beaming for the entire shoot, not even letting a little Melbourne rain put a dampener on their morning.
