Little White Wedding Church Photographer, Matt Rowe Photography, was chomping at the bit for Melissa and Douglas’ Hinterland wedding. (I know, the expression is a little off-putting, but honestly, he was really excited!).
Having met Melissa and Douglas for their engagement session earlier in the year (click here to see it – you will be patting yourself on the back that you did; it is THAT cool!), everyone was a little more relaxed in terms of wedding photography.
Melissa and her gorgeous bridesmaids prepared in style in the Hinterland. Because Melissa is a make-up artist (Cixi make-up) she was in the zone and everyone looked divine. Melissa is French, and we all know the French have some pretty romantic ways of doing things – French-kissing, eating snails.. need I go on? – well they also have a very cool wedding ritual. Ribbon cuttings have long been traditional components of European wedding ceremonies. In France, the bride might cut ribbons that have been stretched across the road/ aisle , which symbolizes the couple overcoming obstacles (Read more).
You will notice a pretty lovely lady here on the right. Meet Kari from Kari Celebrations, she is an all round legend, beautiful spirit and very genuine person (all might fine qualities to find in a celebrant).
As well as being a super cute little church, the Little White Wedding Church boasts two beautifully manicured acres, with an undulating slope leading down to a beautiful dam, landscaped gardens and a boutique style orchard. It is perfect for Wedding Photography.
The day itself, while being the middle of winter, was actually a rainy one. Many couples would find the prospect of a rainy wedding day a little frightening, but we actually embrace whatever the day provides. You can plan almost anything and everything for a wedding except the weather. Rain is actually quite cool for fine art photography as it plays with light in so many cool ways – think about rainbows.
While Melissa and Douglas were out on their wedding shoot the rest of the wedding party had their turn to show their best looks :). What a fun bunch of people! (Thanks to Karena for second shooting these bridal party images)
A dance of love to celebrate the day, the ritual and of course the love at the ever-spectacular Flaxton Gardens
