4.28 am 12/11/11……….after Mel & Glenn‘s fantastic wedding on the beautiful Evans Head coast we headed inland up the Richmond Range to Tamworth. Even though they currently live in Blackwater in central Qld, Courtney & Scott wed in the town where they grew up. I am humbled to think that a person who has dreamt, wished & hoped of their wedding day from a young age would trust us to capture that day in all its entirety ……. wow ! As a photographer the defining pressure, the cause of the nervous excitement that you feel before every wedding is the pressure allow yourself to feel, as you are competing against yourself. This is what motivates you, to accomplish each new job in better than the last…….but confidence comes through experience, & self belief & thus here we are……..
Courtney & Scott fell in love in high school …….. & that’s the way it has been ever since. What a beautiful record of time they have & a what a reflection on life their relationship is. It truly was an honour for us to travel & be a part of it.
To know that here was the one person you will grow old with & that you will always come home to & today was the day when everybody you loved had gathered to celebrate that with you……..when you see Courtney’s face in the images below, think of that what must feel like.
Courtney’s brothers Jessie & Tom were back from Europe & played an electrifying collection of music to accompany the ceremony on a beautiful spring afternoon at The Pavilion Function Centre in Kootingal.
I know you have been looking forward to this so enjoy, Courtney & Scott xo.
Thanks so very much Courtney & Scott for your hard work & for allowing us into your lives like this. Thanks also to Mal & Shar, Stewart & Doreen & the beautiful bridal party for being themselves & for the laughter & the love.
Merry Christmas Mr & Mrs Weatherall, love from Ben, Jodie & Elsie
