I meet and work with genuinely lovely people, even though I work in an industry commonly known for its Bridezillas! I can honestly say that I’ve never met even one. Lorissa, especially, was what I’d call the picture of calm and happiness on her wedding day; she was definitely no Bridezilla. When I arrived at her hotel room it was full of smiles, laughs, and relaxed conversation. She made sure that I had everything I needed and then went on to enjoy the lead up to the ceremony with her family and close friend, even finding the time to put the final touches on the bouquet she made herself.
Mick, who is the perfect match for Lorissa with his laid-back attitude, mused over how the ceremony went off without a hitch. He made me smile when he said that “weddings aren’t so hard to organise. I don’t know why everyone makes such a big deal!” He was right, of course. They’d pulled it off perfectly! We strolled around the gardens in Queens Park (originally their local park and now their wedding location), and spent some very relaxed time getting some great portraits of the two of them. I was flattered and may have blushed when Mick thanked my assistant and me for a lovely afternoon of photography in his wedding speech. It was funny that he actually enjoyed the photography and made special mention of it in his speech when Lorissa apparently had to drag him to our rehearsal/practice/engagement session! It mustn’t have been too bad! (Don’t worry, Mick. Most grooms are the same!) I totally appreciate Mick’s very genuine and no-fuss attitude, so I’ll take the compliment and run with it!
