You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” – Dr Suess
I was approached by a friend of Lindsay and Jordan a week before their wedding. Yes, not your usual wedding request :p !
She told me how Lindsay and Jordan were getting married a park in Fremantle and that their family and friends were helping to pull everything together at short notice. There were extenuating circumstances to the rush, and I felt honoured to have been considered!
There is often an expectation that when we put a wedding together there is only one way to do it, but the reality is, when you get married… you should do exactly whatever the heck you want ❤
Arriving at Booyeembara Park in Fremantle I was struck by its quiet beauty. I didn’t even know this park existed! And there it was, calm and enticing, nestled behind the bustle of High Street. The park is quite large, with a lake in the middle and a wooden deck to walk out on and look over the water. Lindsay had told me they would be getting married on the deck, and standing there looking at the water and ducks I could see why.
Lindsay and Jordan’s friends arrived first, and then the couple along with their baby boy Harry and family arrived. I whisked them away to a more private spot and took their bridal portraits, along with mr Harry making a sleepy appearance! Amongst the green trees, grass and quiet the sun started to descend beginning a beautiful golden hour… just in time for their ceremony!
One of the things that I think surprises so many couples is how fast the moments go, everyone says it, but until you have that experience yourself do you realise how they just zip by! I think this is one of my favourite parts of photography, you get to capture all those images that trigger memories, laughter and tears (hopefully happy!!). Its truly an honour to be involved in someones story.
The lake was calm, the mood was bright, the light was golden and just like that, Lindsay and Jordan were married ❤
