Marty & Liza | Wedding

I could only describe the weather as 4 seasons in one day, yet from the look on Liza’s face, you’d never suspect anything but pure sunshine. She was so truly radiant I can’t even begin to do it justice with words.

The day started out bright and early with the girls as they were having their hair and make-up done and getting dressed.

Like I said…RADIANT!!

I then made a short trip across town to hang out with the boys as they were putting together their finishing touches (& still writing speeches!).

I just have to say I LOVE the unique position you’re in as a photographer getting to spend time with both the Bride & Groom before the ceremony! Pretty much the first thing Marty said to me, was ‘How is she? Is she nervous?’ He didn’t seem even remotely nervous himself, just wanted to make sure she was all good. Then on my return to the girls, straight away Liza asked how he was. It was very sweet :)

This next photo makes me laugh every time…but I have a little confession to make – I didn’t notice the blue sock at the time, I just wanted a photo of all the shoes! You can imagine my surprise when I was sorting through the photos.

PS. I should point out that it wasn’t the groom…but I’m not naming names!

Once the boys were all spiffed up, we took a drive about 10 minutes out of town to a place literally called Paradise! Not hard to see why…

They got married in the adorable little St Aidan’s Church just across from the beach.

Ever heard the expression “She stopped traffic”? Well, Liza caused a car accident!

While the boys were lined up inside, and all the pews were full, the girls stepped out of the car one by one. A little last minute fussing, keeping the train & veil off the ground, when a car slowed across the road to catch a glimpse…then BANG!!! It seems the car behind was watching a little closely too :)

A part of me would have loved to see the reaction to the noise inside, but I wouldn’t have got this shot!! The moment of pure excitement before changing her life forever.

Marty was so cool and collected waiting for her to arrive…

Then this…the happiest bride to ever walk down the aisle.

After the ceremony we made a few stops around Apollo Bay at the beach and pier before heading out to Otway Estate for the reception and a little roaming through the vineyards.

I absolutely love these next few portraits on the rocks; the colours make me smile :)

It may be just me, but this kind of reminds me of the Victoria tourism ad with the ‘Run Rabbit’ song
