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.
An awesome Wombat Hollow wedding
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.
