Sonya & Luke
Finally, finally, I’ve caught up with myself (as far as weddings are concerned, anyway!) It’s been a pretty busy month!
A couple of weekends ago, on an overcast but humid Saturday, I photographed Sonya and Luke’s beautiful vintage wedding, held in the Ayers House Ballroom. My assistant and I often play a guessing game before each wedding, about the colour of the bridesmaids’ dresses, the bride’s dress and hair style, and the type of flowers. I’m not often right, or if I am, it might be on just one point. But this time, I scored 4 out of 4! Sonya had a really elegant black vintage theme, with stunning dusky silk roses, vintagey pearl and diamante accessories, and a breathtaking dress which made me gasp when I saw it. (Really…I wanted to get married again, just to have a dress like that!)
Sonya and Luke are a quiet couple who clearly adore each other. Watching Luke’s face as Sonya walked down the aisle was amazing. The smile lit up his whole face. I also loved the processional piece – an instrumental string medley of Taylor Swift’s “Love Story” and Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida”. (Have a look on YouTube – it’s pretty goosebump-inducing!)
The day was gorgeous – the light was beautiful – and we were able to capture some great moments as they celebrated becoming Mr & Mrs! Here are some of my favourites:
