While I spent time with Bec, her family and her bridesmaids as the preparation began on her wedding day, I couldn’t help but notice an extensive display of family photographs around her mothers home. In particular, there were so many of Bec and Brett through the years they have been together. On holiday, at family events; it was evident that Brett was marrying into a family that he was already a huge part of and that their wedding day was simply the certification of what they already knew.
In the past few months Bec and Brett have bought their first home, welcomed a new addition (their puppy Lady) and now, they are married. It is not unusual for me to choke up a little and it was a magical moment as Bec came down the aisle. She looked incredible and I heard her breath catch with a small cry as she tried to hold it together once she saw Brett waiting for her. Later in the day, I asked her about the rosary she had attached to her bouquet. I thought perhaps it was a family heirloom and she responded that she hoped one day it would be as she would give it to her daughter on her own wedding day in the future. There is something to be said for creating your own traditions and it is a beautifully, personal touch.
Bec and Brett were married in the middle of autumn and it could not have been a more beautiful day. I have heard other photographers say it before and I’ll say it again – the light in April and May is just beautiful and I wish I could work more during these months. From the cobolt blue bridesmaids dresses, to the chartreuse green chrysanthemums in the bouquets – it was full of gorgeous details and spots of colour. One of my favourite touches throughout the day was that I continued to come across Bec and Brett’s peacock feather signature accent and the literal icing on the cake was a peacock cake. Incredible!
