If your wedding venue has the words ‘Italian Food Project’ in its name, you can be pretty sure that i’ll be excited to be a part of your big day 😂
This Italian Food Project wedding took place in Camden, on a lovely overcast day in late 2018. It’s odd, the little things that come back to me in the weeks and months after I shoot a wedding. So much goes on during the day, it’s a total roller coaster of emotions (surprisingly, often for me as well as for my couples). Often it’ll be quite some time after the wedding that i’ll remember little bits of the day that I had initially forgotten.
I remember that it was really, really hot when I arrived to Laura’s parents’ place, where she was getting ready. I remember that her Dad collects old cars, and there were a bunch of really cool old vehicles in various places around the house. I remember being warmly welcomed into the house by Laura’s family and friends, at which point I decided to completely re-arrange the living room so give me better light for photos (sorry about that everyone)
I remember Sholto’s face when he saw Laura coming down the aisle at their Italian Food Project wedding, and the big fat tear that rolled down his cheek (you can kinda-sorta see it below in one of my photos). I remember heartfelt speeches, huge amounts of laughter, and absolutely incredible food. I remember that I was treated warmly and just like a family member by everyone, most of all Laura and Sholto themselves.
You can find The Italian Food Project here; the ceremony was at Nepean House (who don’t normally do weddings). The celebrant was my amazing friend Melissa Soncini. Laura’s makeup was by the incredible Nicole McCann, and her hair was by Sensoria Bowral. The girls all made their own flowers (how cool is that!); Laura’s dress was by Needle & Thread, and Sholto’s suit was by Joe Black. Laura’s Mum hand-made the boys’ bow-ties. Cake by Heartcaker. The DJ was Brendon Li On Wing, and Lauren’s very talented sister made the invitations and the welcome sign at the ceremony.
If you’re having an Italian Food Project wedding and you’re looking for a photographer, I’d love to hear from you!
