Photography: Vanessa Bong & Vanessa King

Sunlight, laughter, hugs, kisses. Old friends, children and sisters. Flowers, and ribbon. Joy and celebration. The love and beauty that is celebrated and shown when two people in love come together in marriage.

On the first of February, I was so lucky to witness and document the wedding of Mady and Luke. Shooting with my incredible photographer double (Vanessa King) we worked hard to capture every moment of this beautiful day. However, as much as I would like to say that we worked to the bone, I have to say that in the case, it was simply too easy.
Why? Simple. It was a photographer’s dream. The venue was stunning, with the sun hiding behind tall trees, little lace flags framed the space and little flower pots brought pops of colour and a touch of delight. The guests were lovely, everyone there was exceptionally kind and gracious and the joy that was on their faces was so easy to capture. It felt like a festival of family, as the guests sat on hay bales and shared the joy of the day together with pleasure and happiness. And the bride and groom? Well you can see for yourself. They were glowing.

There were so many touching moments throughout the day, from Mady cuddling her daughter Mackenzie as she put on her dress, to Mady and her father’s deep embrace as he prepared to give his daughter away. And of course, the expression on Luke’s face when he saw his bride for the very first time.

Mady and Luke, thank you so much for giving Vanessa and myself the opportunity to photograph your wedding. It was simply a day of immense beauty, joy and love. Wishing you all the very best for your new life together as husband and wife!
