Wedding : Richard & Melany – Sea Trader, Brittannia Bay – 30/06/2012 (Part 1)

Bohemian Rhapsody!

 Wow, what can I say about this gorgeous young couple!  Well, they are truly one of the sweetest and nicest young couples I have met.  But not only are they lovely and madly in love with each other, they are also absolutely gorgeous!

They decided to have their wedding up the West Coast cos they both have a love for the wild beauty of that coastline!  And as a true testatment of how of much they are loved and liked, all their guests made the trek up the coast to witness them become Man and Wife!

Although funnily enough … almost didnt happen!

There we were photographing this gorgeous bride …when suddenly I thought ….surely the car should be here by now!

And yes, it should have been …..but it hadnt arrived!  Melany kept her cool ….and not once did she panic!  She sent the bridesmaids off to the church to warn everyone that she was going to be delayed as the car had yet to arrive!

After about ten minutes ….she turned around, viewed the cars that were available ……and needless to say …the only one available was mine!

My car was pretty loaded with all my camera equipment and overnight bags (we were staying over)!

But this didnt stop Melany ……she organised to lock our bags in their honeymoon suite and her and her dad hopped into my car with my assistant, Wendy!

It was a bit strange driving to the church with the bride next to me and the Father of the Bride behind me!

But Melany was determined that she was marrying Richard …..and nothing was going to stop her!

So Richard, always know that your wife, moved mountains to become your wife that day!

And it was an honour to wear two caps that day …..firstly, as the photographer and secondly, as the designated driver!

Happy to say I got her to the church on time ….okay maybe slightly late …but through no fault of mine ….lol!

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Black, it was an honour to photograph your beautiful wedding!
