Like a gentle giant with hands of iron & a heart of gold, a tall building in whose shade you can always seek some relief & who you can always look up to ………. this is Shayne with his new wife Erin on the property they will soon call home, after marrying on a jetty built with those same hands for all the world, their world, to see.
All day the air was thick & heavy & clung to your skin like plastic & this gave way to a spectacular early afternoon thunder storm. The thunder felt like it was right above my head & it chased us all the way from Modanville back to Lismore……..but it did not matter one bit. The way human beings come together to celebrate love & life always makes me smile & go home happy. Erin & Shayne’s wedding was brilliant…………..
Because Jodie goes ahead of me to be at the ceremony early I often have to describe the groom to her in varying amounts of detail so she can find him straight away…….not as easy as you might think sometimes. But when it came to Shayne all I said was ” he’ll be the tallest bloke there, he’s got massive hands & he’s always laughing……….
Something blue ……..Erin’s grandfather wore this to his own daughters wedding, & you could tell he was a major presence, even by his absence. It really is the details, the small things especially when they are in people, that tell our stories.
Erin, softly spoken with a gentle beauty, had a calm grace about her all day.
The valet boys waiting for the cars & the girls, to arrive
What to do when it rains in Lismore…………..
Thank you Erin & Shayne for a day to remember & for having us into your lives.
