You see, weddings don’t always go as you plan they will. In fact, they never do.
I ended up having an absolute blast at my own wedding. I wouldn’t change a thing (we ended up getting a better marquee!)
I did learn something very important. A wedding is many things: a celebration, a ritual, a gathering of family and friends; a dinner, a dance, a tear, a smile and some laughter; a drink, a memory, a future. A family. A flower, a dress, a ring, and so many other tiny details.
But I feel that this is over-complicating things. A wedding is, quite simply, this:
- one person (man, or woman)
- and another person (man, or woman)
- exclaiming to the entire world
- that from the billions of other people out there…
- they choose each other, forever
Nothing else really matters.
And THAT is why I became a Bowral wedding photographer. Because of love. The ability to be involved in, and be able to document, the single thing that connects every human being on the globe. Deep down, love is the reason we all keep going.
