Emma & Brendon {Married} Part 1

Weddings. -Happy sigh-. No two weddings are the same! Not at all … And this for a photographer makes life interesting and evvvvver so exciting!

This certainly isn’t just any wedding, this is Emma and Brendon’s Wedding. We’ve just walked into one big homely affair. One like we’ve never walked into before.
Entirely set at home… With the ceremony in the front garden where Emma grew up and played as a young child. And the reception in the back in her Dad’s implement shed (whicccch he cleared out for the special event and had concreted…this is a big deal by the way! I’ve heard how much stuff gets crammed into those sheds! lol).
There were lawn games, baby chicks, and details being attended to just moments before the ceremony. Everyone got ready at the same house without a worry in the world whether it was bad luck seeing the bride before the wedding! … Nope doesn’t exist… well not in Emma and Brendon’s world! They just want to spend the rest of their lives together and have everyone join in on their love. Like I said, this is one big homely affair!

It doesn’t take a man very long to get into a suit. So it’s games time!

 Everyone was so chilled, just a few last minute details right before the ceremony didn’t stress anyone out!

The ceremony being both emotional and comedic, had everyone laughing, smiling and clapping right through to the first kiss…

but sometimes that moment just after the kiss is just sooooo much more special!
