Melissa & Chris – 8 Nov 2014

What a glorious day! Last Saturday I had the enviable honour of captuing Mel and Chris’s very special wedding day at Wollongong’s delightful Botanic Gardens.

After keeping Chris waiting the suitable amount of time, their ceremony was punctuated with a “box ceremony” where each placed a love letter they’d written to the other. The box was then sealed up (with a bottle of bourbon to keep it company), only to be opened on their first anniversary – isn’t that the most romantic thing you’ve ever heard of! Even if seeing Mel the blushing Bride weilding a hammer was slightly disturbing 🙂

We toured the gardens for photos, then met their “fur daughter” at the harbour where she joined in the fun too.

Congratulations to you both! You’re an awesome couple and I wish for you a lifetime of happiness and love. oxoxoxxxxxx
