A Yarra River Wedding

Last weekend I photographed Michelle and Simon’s wedding on the bank of the Yarra. It seems that Michelle and Simon will have a very luck filled marriage, as it rained a fair bit on their wedding day. Despite the fact that they came very close to having to move their ceremony across the river to the Studley Park Boathouse it hardly fazed them at all – a testament to both their lovely and relaxed personalities.  The ceremony was beautiful, and the intermittent rain didn’t bother anyone; everyone just put up their umbrellas and continued on. The sun shone through, right at the end.  It was as if they’d planned it that way.

We got some fantastic photographs around the river and at the Studley Park Boathouse, and it was really only right at the end when the rain started to pour, so Michelle and Simon went inside and continued to enjoy the evening with their family and friends.

My assistant Ryo did a great job protecting the camera gear while I was shooting by holding an umbrella over me- and getting very wet himself! It was almost comical when we were both huddled outside under an umbrella in the rain photographing the rings (last shot in this blog post) and he was holding an umbrella, a reflector and extra equipment. I wish we’d had someone to take a photo of us!
