Jade & Matthew - July 2008

Some people may remember this young man who was a regular face on television in a long running sitcom here in Australia called Hey Dad (see You tube post below), and numerous television commercials. Matthew Krok married his beautiful bride, Jade last saturday. I was asked to cover the wedding by both sets of mothers as I had covered weddings for their respective daughters in unrelated weddings a few years previously. I was happy to do so and found Matthew and Jade to be so relaxed and warm. Inspite of the cold that was evident by the mottling of the skin and the strong breeze, they were so unfazed and so pleased to be married. It is unique to see such devotion to each other. They truly only had eyes for each other. The sun only peeked through the clouds occasionally on the day, and we went to La Perouse and Port Botany for pictures. They caused a bit of a flutter at KFC Drive through when they went thru on the way to the picture taking. It was interesting. They are a special couple and I was pleased to be of service to them in this photographic capacity. They are both great people and I look forward to watching their future together blossom and grow. The catering was done by one of Matthew's aunties, Linda, and the food was superb. The presentation and service from the young ladies involved was everything and more I have seen at the big end of town receptions and It was also a little surreal to be at their reception at Greenwich in Sydney's North, to see a number of young families whose weddings I had covered some years ago. I think I am getting old! or am I already there? Have a great time in Thailand and thank you for choosing me to cover your day Jade and Matthew.

Hi Craig, your portfolio of pix is pretty comprehensive and really well shot. Can't wait to see the wedding photos of Helene and Charlie. The wedding was lots of fun but it was a very long day and it was really sweet of you to drive the bride and groom home at the end of the night. We all had to back up again at the brides parents house for an after party on Sunday, we were all pretty wrecked. Helene remarked you were more of a friend than photographer and you fitted in with the team really well. That says a lot about your ability to fit in with anyone.
