I have been fortunate enough to have done a fair bit of globetrotting in my life so far, yep I lived in a tent for 5 months of my life and have seen maybe a round-a-bouts 23 countries all up… so far. So… I think it’s fair to say, I have seen some amazingly beautiful places… but to be honest, there is always no place like home.
Early last year I met Ali & Karl who invited me to shoot their wedding at Rainbow Beach. And so I fell in love with Rainbow Beach. This place is quiet & humble, but is truly magical, and hands down one of the most beautiful places I have travelled to!
And yes, of course there was something truly magical about Ali & Karl’s wedding. How could there not be. There’s something about inviting those who are dearest to join you for a weekend of celebration of marriage & love to such magical place… it can only be. Amazing!
This was a happy wedding, not that I’ve ever been to a sad wedding, but Ali & Karl’s wedding day was filled with lightness & loads of laughter… Nothing too serious. Ali is a Teacher & Karl a Gourmet Chef. And so you’ll see nothing too serious. Here’s is the ceremony reading from Ali to Karl…
Yes, I’ll Marry You – Pam Ayres (adapted)
Yes, I’ll marry you, my dear, and here’s the reason why; So I can push you out of bed when the baby starts to cry, and if we hear a knocking and it’s creepy and it’s late, I hand you the torch you see, and you investigate.
Yes I’ll marry you, my dear, you may not apprehend it, but when the tumble-drier goes it’s you that has to mend it. You have to face the neighbour should our staffy-cross attack him, and if a drunkard fondles me it’s you that has to whack him.
Yes, I’ll marry you, you’re virile and you’re lean, our house is like a pigsty you can help to keep it clean. Those tasty little dinners which you serve without a fight, as I do all my schoolwork, you can cook them every night! It’s you who has to work the drill and put up curtain track, and when I am in a mood it’s you who gets the flak.
I do see great advantages, but none of them for you, and so before you see the light, I do,I do,I do!
Yep it’s well & truly been sometime since my last blog post… So… here is Ali & Karl’s long overdue wedding post… it’s massive… seriously MASSIVE!!!
