When Alex contacted me about a year ago, we met up at Dome, Bunbury with Lance and they were such a nice couple. They know what they wanted in a wedding, simple and stress free. Indeed it was such an enjoyable wedding, simple, fun and stress free. We started at their place at round 10.00am at her parents place. I love the layout of the house, so many small rooms. It was just the right time to start photographing, she was getting her make up done with her bridesmaids. I love photographing the preparation part of the wedding, it is the introduction of the big day. The fine details, the make up, hairstyling, candid moments of friends having fun and etc.
We head off to the Bunbury Art Gallery for the ceremony and there was when I met the celebrant and driver. I have never met such an amzing celebrant before!!.. I couldnt remember her name.. SORRY!!.. she was so organised, knows what a photographer needs and such a detailed person. I need to know her name and recommend to everyone I know who is getting married. Most of the time, when I arrive at the venue for ceremony, Its all "chop-chop-chop" for me, run to the church before it begins, because they seldom that long, as I need to find a car park and the limo normally just park right in front. This time, I am glad I manage to park right next to the limo and I got to move in pretty quick. Right after I step out, the celebrant was already waiting for me, call me by my name and ask me to signal her when its ready, she will NOT start without me bring ready!!.. WHAT!!?? that was amazing!!!..then she went on and politely ask the guest to make sure I am not blocked for the shots during the signing. And during all this, she was such in control. I will get her name and share it here.. SHE IS HIGHLY RECOMMEDED!!!..and not forgetting the limo driver..sorry, couldnt remember your name.. I am soooo bad with names!!!.. i need to train myself to REMEMBER!!!..feeling bad now..but anyways.. he was such an amazing person, taking and preparing drinks for bride/groom/mates and even me. As it was a hot day, he was handing out drinks without even asking. He even suggested a few spots that we can get good photos as he knew that place well. Its such a great help and its amazing people like this that makes the wedding so successful without much stress. Very professional!.
I am still in the process of culling and post-production. Will be sharing more here soon. But just this few to start with, hope you like it :)
