Erica & Beau Are Beautifully Married
There are some wedding days that are forever ingrained in your memory. Despite having photographed over a hundred weddings and countless couples, there are moments that never fade. Erica & Beau’s wedding at Montrose Berry Farm in the quiet New South Wales Southern Highlands was one of these rare moments forever ingrained in my mind.
I recall on the morning of her wedding day, Erica had her hair and makeup done at Sterling Hair in Surry Hills. Looking fabulous afterwards, she needed to get back to her car and make the long trip down to Sutton Forrest. For the uninitiated, Surry Hills to Sutton Forrest is a good 2-hour drive with traffic. So when Erica realised that she had left her coat at Sterling Hair, she started panicking because her car keys were with her coat. I can remember standing on the side of the road, calming her down and recommending that the lovely staff at Sterling Hair call a cab and have the taxi bring her coat (and car keys!) to our current location.
That was just one memory.
I can also recall the moment Erica surprised Beau at night by singing him a song whilst playing the guitar. She had secretly been taking guitar lessons for this very special occasion. Erica had told me about this months ahead, but to be present and witness it unfold was magical.
And how could I forget everyone dancing under the willow trees at Montrose Berry Farm. And the spread of glorious desserts that Erica had prepared. I can even remember munching on said desserts on the drive home (Erica had insisted that we take some away, so I obliged happily).
What more can a humble wedding photographer like me ask for? I love my job and the people I get to meet!
