I had the great pleasure of joining Shukria and Robert on their Wedding Day as their Wedding Photojournalist. We all congregated in the amazing grounds of Milton Park in Bowral. Everything was breathtaking, from Shukria herself to the blossoming flowers everywhere you looked. Robert showed what a beautiful man he is, and together Shukria and Robert simply glowed. They could have been the lead roles on any Hollywood film set - both for their movie star looks but even more so for their style and poise. For me, to be immersed in this, and given the role to capture all this beauty and devotion, was an absolute honour and I can't imagine a Wedding Day more perfect.
A went for a drive not too long ago....a couple of weeks ago to be precise. I blinked as the sun pierced through the windscreen and I wondered how all those leaves held on in the southerly breeze, all goldened up and dancing together. I couldn't see that clearly but I'm sure as my legs found that trail through the bush rock and scrub that there was a white whale tail saluting all encompassing love. That was what happened at Bawley Point, otherwise a sleepy little coastal sanctuary, but this day awakened from the pulsing humanity of a big white tent, and two particularly special people who sat at the centre of it all. That's Ainslie and Terry. Queen, King and royal subjects of this great stuff that all nature, neighbours and elements combined rejoiced. And if you think this is poetic, you should have seen the way their eyes met and the smiles intermeshed.....
The what where why and how is irrelevant. If you can't feel that real loving absolutely pure togetherness in these photographs, with these beautiful people - you may as well be neck deep in mud. As for us, we just danced on turquoise waters, under an aquamarine sky, a float a very sexy looking barge, whilst being showered in champagne as pelicans flew overhead. There were huge wise old trees and stretches of beach that had never been graced with all manner of such joyful antics, and...I almost dropped my camera in the drink it was all so wonderfully fun to be part of. I took some photos, or they kinda took themselves as I smiled from ear to ear and got to swim in the wake of all that wholesome celebration.
Kylie and Krystal, wow, thank you!!!! I'll never forget your Wedding Day. It was perfect.
