The current media tells me Australia is sitting at 73% in favour for marriage equality. I honestly can not wait for the day when same sex partnerships can be recognised legally in this country. It was a privilege to meet Harriet and Aleisha back in March for a secret ceremony at the British Consulate. I had a few tears during the service, listening to the beautiful words the vice consul read, along with witnessing 2 souls so happy to exchange their wedding rings to symbolise their bonds to each other! I love what I do and being able to provide special memories to others, through my eyes & style is part of my purpose. – Quote from Aleisha, ‘Hopefully one day we’ll look back and laugh at the days when same sex marriage wasn’t legally recognised in Australia!’

Mel & Rob had the most amazing bridal party – 14 of their closest friends and family, who made their day full of laughter and fun.

Dave was very excited to get amongst all the ‘chicks’. Continue Reading…
