I was thrilled to photograph Rebecca and Chris’ wedding at Aravina Estate last month and can still recall Rebecca’s expression as she looked upwards towards her new husband as one of pure joy and love. With family travelling from all over the world, they made everyones dreams come true as they became husband and wife against a backdrop of grapevines.
Rebecca and Chris’ friends had been pestering them for years about getting married. They were comfortable living their life in the Pilbara so there was no rush and while they both knew they would make their relationship official one day; it was just a matter of when.
Eventually one afternoon as they sat on their balcony overlooking the Karratha landscape and played a board game, Chris quietly brought out a ring box from behind him and asked Bec to marry him. Rebecca was so surprised and was crying and laughing and shaking all at once but eventually found the words to accept his proposal with an elated heart.
