'Nothing else Matters' as inscribed in the wedding rings was but one of the MANY small details not forgotten in my recent wedding shoot of the Beautiful Melinda and Julian White.
A 12hr shoot that was more relaxing and easy going then any wedding I have ever been too. The bride was so chilled out I was in awe. Her calm and happy presence rubbed off on anyone in communication with her that morning.
A secret Garden inspired wedding, Melinda & Julian did not miss a beat with this wedding. Every detail considered, from cards to in-laws. Handmade wooden boxes for the groomsmen with trinkets inside. Weeks and countless hours prior, making 'Ninja Gingers' as party favours. Art paper with a leaf less tree where guest could thumb print a leaf on and 'leave their signature'. Letters to each other locked in a box during the ceremony with wine saved commemorating their wedding.
The one advantage of being a photographer and being lost behind the camera is feeling the emotion that comes from a photo-shoot. If their is one thing I could say above all else during this photo-shoot, is that Julian adores his wife. This couple came to me and said qoute: "Jules and I are such goofballs and unfortunately really struggle to relax" in photo's.
I didn't even have to do much directing, Julian's love for Melinda and Melinda's charisma just naturally took the photo-shoot in it's own direction - they were natural's!
