Katherine & Brendan Oct 2009

Katherine & Brendan are such a fun couple. I had a lot of wonderful moments at this wedding it would be hard to list them all. The weather was so co-operative and lovely, the light was generous and the company was tremendous. It did not dawn on me for some time that Katherine's parents even taught at my High School, and I even saw my wonderful Biology teacher at the wedding and reception. From the wedding in All Saints Church in Parramatta to the lovely ambience of yesteryear at Old Government House in Parramatta, Australia's oldest Vice-regal residence since 1812, the history and the setting were perfect. The hospitality, the food, and the guests all blended together for what will be for me, a very memorable wedding. The speeches were touching and genuine. Dee, the father of the groom, charged the newly weds to not live with fear, and never be afraid to reach for your dreams and goals. He said they should "Trust the process of life and go forward". Sage advice and exactly what we all needed to hear and remember. All the best to the both of you, I sense a very big future for you. Thank you for choosing me to cover your beautiful wedding.

There is a picture below of the bride sitting on the lounge chair in her home with a baby next to her. It is a montage of two pictures. The baby is actually the bride who had been pictured sitting in the same chair when very young, and in consultation with them, I created this image.
