Brianna and Scott were married in Rosiland Park on Saturday the 14th of March with a reception later that evening at Quills Restaurant. They had rain to contend with that morning, right up until an hour before the ceremony, with the sky threatening more rain. Even though they had a back up venue organised, they made a brave decision to go ahead with their planned service in the great outdoors…. a decision that really paid off. It never did rain again, and their ceremony was so beautiful in the surroundings of Bendigo’s most magnificent park.
We started the day taking photographs of Scott and his groomsmen getting ready. I absolutely love these images of Scott…. he looks so incredibly suave.
The ceremony in Rosiland Park was so lovely. Thank heavens the rain stayed away!
This made me really laugh, and was one of those times when I really didn’t appreciate the humour of what just happened until afterward. While photographing Brianna and Scott in this old laneway I decided to try something different and asked Scott to lean on the door and watch admiringly as Briannna did a sexy strut past him. I slowed my shutter speed to a 40th of a second to catch some motion blur on Brianna and asked them to ‘go for it’. Enter stage right, (totally unscripted)… friendly black and white pussycat, who for some reason best known to himself needed to get to the other end of the lane right at that very moment. I was concentrating so hard on keeping my camera steady without a tripod at a 40th of a second… I didn’t even see him until the 3rd frame, when I urged Scott and Brianna to “keep going….” Ha ha ha ha… you can see Scott’s attention drift from admiration for his wife, to “what the?…. what’s with this cheeky cat?…” I just love the way puss actually strutted BETWEEN them, looking forward the entire time, as though this sort of thing is totally commonplace to him. Ho Hum! Well, maybe it is! It’s a great lane, and I can only imagine lots of Bendigo photographers take wedding parties in there. Looks like ‘puss’ is very non-plussed by weddings and photographers.
Brianna and Scott… I had such a great time being with you on your wedding day. Everything was so classy and beautiful, and you were both so happy, relaxed and a joy to work with. I loved your wedding, I really loved your friends, but most of all I truly LOVED the way the two of you gaze at each other. Your mutual adoration is so plain to see, and such a beautiful thing to observe. Thank you for trusting me to capture the memories of your special day!
