Mark and Lisa – Married!

I woke up with a spring in my step on Saturday morning, WEDDING DAY!  I knew that Lisa was going to be gorgeous, and that Mark was going to be the perfect, most adoring groom.  I was right on both counts. 

As I write this, I am surrounded by my beautiful family, out in the country.  We’ve all gotten together (7 out of 8 of us kids from all over the world) to give Mum her biggest wish.  That her children be around her, enjoying each other and making music together.  Mum is becoming more frail by the day, but the joy that I see in her face as she soaks in the family she has loved all her life somehow softens reality.  Looking through the images of Mark and Lisa’s most spectacular day remind me again of what is really important. Love.  When all is said and done, it’s these moments and so many others, that mean the most.  It’s the most amazing privilege to be invited into people’s beautiful moments, to capture and preserve them. 



It’s a ‘Mum moment’.  I love it.  I love it a lot.


The girls got ready at Locks and Lashes, and Deirdre most certainly did a fantastic job, as always.


Lisa was absolutely breathtaking, and I couldn’t wait to see Mark’s reaction when he saw her!


Lisa is the BLING QUEEN.  I danced a silly little jig when I heard about all of the amazing detail that she had planned into her day.  Awesomeness Lisa, way awesomeness.



Nina and her amazing crew from Pink Poppie orchestrated the flowers.  Another little jig right there.  This Ostrich feather fan has been in Lisa’s family for generations, it’s just soooooo beautiful.


The wedding was held at beautiful Woodend Gardens.  It has got to be the most superbly preened garden I’ve ever seen.  Lisa loves gardening, so it was the perfect spot!


Lisa’s family is one of the sweetest, most sincere families I’ve come across.  In fact I was considering popping Rose, her Mum, into my handbag and taking her home.  She didn’t stop smiling all day, her little girl was marrying the love of her life.


Mark was so nervous, and excited.  He was a joy to photograph!





I like these people, I like them a lot.


The shoes were to die for.  More bling.


Have you ever seen a man happier with his gorgeous bride?  This image says it all.


If ever you’re planning a wedding in Spring, prepare yourself for the possibility of a bit of wind. 


Such a fairy tale wedding. Woodend Gardens, I love you.


The flowers matched the dresses so well, I could barely stand it.


Then onto Lisa’s Grandad’s place for some rustic country pictures.



Of course, more BLING.  Amazing bling.


Mark and Lisa, thank you so very much for letting us into your day.  We thoroughly enjoyed every moment, and can’t wait to show you all of the other moments we’ve captured!  Enjoy your honeymoon!
