Katrina and Shaun have been living in Western Australia so all of our chatting has been over the Internet. I finally met them a couple of days before their wedding and it felt like I already knew them. Katrina was just buzzing and so excited to be marrying Shaun and that sort of excitement is contagious. While we chatted about her photos, Katrina mentioned that all of her chosen locations had a lot of significance to her. Katrina grew up surrounded by sugar cane and farms, the sugar cane she chose as her backdrop belongs to her grandfather and will probably be the last crop he farms. The river and jetty are areas Katrina used to hang out at as a child and the veranda belonged to her Auntie Joanie. I hope I did her locations justice.
Whilst out on location a fairly severe storm was brewing in the background. Fancying myself as a bit of a storm chaser as well as a wedding photographer, I was in heaven with amazing clouds and storm front coming in. What better to do than place Katrina and Shaun right in front of it!
Whilst Katrina and Shaun held their ceremony at the stunning Sannas Garden, continuing on to the reception which was held at the Yamba Shores Tavern.
I hope you enjoy the photos from their day:
The girls made their own bouquets with flowers freshly picked from their friends gardens:
Katrina's wedding gown was a beautiful Maggie Sottero design:
I loved how the bridesmaids smiles never left their face:
The ceremony was conducted by the Maclean Presbyterian minister, Brett Graham:
Katrina's brothers provided the music whilst Katrina and Shaun signed the register, they are REALLY good!
