Just a very select few from Kelly and Michaels’s wedding…
I was invited to photograph a beautiful little ceremony out at Lake Nillahcootie in November that would see Kelly and Michael become Mr and Mrs. It was a beautiful day for a wedding and the location was really lovely and quiet. The seating was placed on the lawn under the dappled light of some trees and the aisle was a very shot mowed strip from the car park that travelled up between the two sets of seats to where the wedding would take place. Two large vases of greenery with small white flowers that sat at the front of each side of the seating began to wilt with the heat of the day made for beautiful decoration. I arrived a little early and had a quick chat with the Celebrant before the “boys” arrived. They all looked pretty relaxed, I assume that was aided by a couple of quiet beverages before the ceremony. Guests slowly began to arrive and soon after the main contingency of the wedding guests arrived by coach. The Groom and his groomsmen, Ricky, Stephen and Glenn put the final touches on their appearance with a little help from Michael’s mum. When Kelly arrived they drove a slow lap of the lack park in two ’55 Chev’s.
Kelly looked stunning with her hair up in her corset back strapless white dress with embroidery and beading on the bodice. Kelly and her entourage including Kelly and Michaels’ 3 children, stretched their legs for a moment before Georgina, Sally and Melissa, followed by the two older children, Maddison and Harley. Finally Kelly made her way down the isle to Christina Perri’s A Thousand Years, with her was her youngest son Felix and her Aunt Janice, who gave Kelly away.
Michael could not take his eyes of his bride as she made her way to him at the end of the isle and Kelly was absolutely glowing! When the ceremony began the celebrant realised her mic was not working, the situation was handled professionally and rectified pretty quickly. When it came time for the rings to be exchanged they called on the eldest son, Harley, who was asked to be ring barer to come forward. The moment left Harley a little confused but it sure did make for an adorable few moments!
After the ceremony we stuck around the Lake for a few photos before heading out to the “farm” for a few requested snaps with the truck. The sky at this point was really something!
I must say this wedding was a whole lot of fun! And I had such a pleasure shooting 🙂
So thank you to Kelly and Michael for letting me capture and share your special day
