I knew Anita and Jarryd’s day was going to be special when they first came to see me, explaining that their wedding day was going to be on their 10 year dating anniversary! These two have been together since they were 15 and their connection of love and laughter is just so infectious, and a delight to be around.

Wanting to keep it low key, but not entirely escaping family traditions,  the day started with my gorgeous wife Michelle making over Anita and her two best friends for their hair and makeup in Anita’s family home in Shell Cove, south of Wollongong. Anita was “bought” with a pair of shoes by the best man and they danced the morning away before  heading to Sydney, to The Grounds Of Alexandria , where Anita and Jarryd did a first look, and spent some time together before a 6 pm ceremony. The perfect summer wedding timeline! And best of all, who doesn’t love an emotional groom?! 🙂

The Grounds is always such a pleasure to shoot a wedding at but even more so with the installation of the amazing cherry blossoms which feature in some of my most favourite images. It’s a venue that also  lets me play with some cool patches of light, and poking my head around corners  capturing these two lovebirds that are just so incredibly in love.

Anita and Jarryd, Happy 10 year anniversary! Michelle and I wish you nothing but the best for your future together and thanks for having us there as part of the day!
