No – this isn’t a fairy tale, although as we stood in the dead-quiet, final moments of light, and as this day in history prepared to wink out like a drowsy candle, it sure felt like one. Nothing moved – nothing stirred.
And in those moments of halcyon dusk when it was not light, nor was it dark, and as two humans quietly embraced in front of me, I wondered how on this crowded earth there can still exist places that are so beautifully, hauntingly quiet.
Several times over the last few years I’ve seen images from a Wombat Hollow wedding, but had never managed to actually shoot there. To me it seemed like a mystical and ramshackle (in a good way) place; a relaxed place packed with old sheds, quirky things here and there.
I now know that a Wombat Hollow wedding is a pretty special event. You’re in the middle of the bush, far from other people, far from cars and distractions. Ghost-gums tower overhead, and if you listen carefully, you can hear kangaroos crashing through the scrub.
So, I hope you enjoy these images of my first Wombat Hollow Wedding 🙂
Thanks for Trent Daft for second shooting and generally being a great dude.
