When we first met, I sat barefoot on a pile of dirt with ants crawling all over my legs, and asked my smiling clients to join me, which they did (happily). I knew we'd work well together. I was even more impressed when I pressed Kylie on her John Deer thing (the cap, and possibly shirt if I remember correctly), to which she responded something along the lines, "that she just really liked the company and Pete does a lot of mowing". We laughed, discussed sponsorship opportunities, and then the impending arrival on their Wedding Day in the Gator through the magnificent floral archway of Foxglove Spires in Tilba Tilba. We then laughed some more, dusted ourselves off and went home knowing this all felt like a great fit.
Fasforward a couple of months or more and there I am photographing Kylie being escorted through aforementioned archway in the shiniest John Deer Gator ever to have been driven past the showroom. The shine of that Gator had nothing on Kylie's smile though, only to matched by my mate Pete, who is in fact my client first but someone I felt an instant kinship with.
The violins played in the sea of green and blossoming flowers while these two tied the knot. With love flowing, and the birds chirping, this Wedding felt so magic for all of us. Tilba is incredible and so is this wonderful venue. With a couple of bubbles and beautiful food, great friends, and happy families, this was such a nice end of the year for me, and for Kylie and Pete an incredible launch into their married lives.
The Whale Restaurant in Narooma played host to dinner after the Ceremony. What a find that was for me - I can't wait to take my family there. It's got such a great feel and everyone clearly loved the atmosphere they created, let alone the food and beverages.
