Do tell us about the couple
The couple had been together for over 8 years so it was about time they took the plunge! The bride was certainly ready but the men, they can take their time can’t they? These two like to have a laugh so it was great to part of the whole wedding experience. They make each other better which is so nice to see.
Please tell us a little bit about the day and how it went
It was a beautiful wedding ceremony which was held in the same church Fiona’s parents were married in. What made it even more special was Fiona chose to wear her mum’s veil when she walked down the aisle with her dad by her side. I was so excited to see The Dress and was not disappointed, it was stunning with over 6000 hand sewn on beads. She looked amazing!
Celebrations continued at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) in the Long Room but first we had a chance to have some fun on the cricked ground. Well at least the boys had a ball. I think it was Mark’s favourite part of the day; getting out the cricket gear and having a swing of the bat. His new wife was a sport posing for pictures with the bridesmaids.
There was lots of laughter, dancing and smiles throughout the night. Mark and Fiona are a beautiful couple and I wish them all the happiness in the world in the next chapter of their lives.
Do tell us a little bit about yourself
I love photographing people in love, especially at weddings. I’ve created pictures for as long as I can remember, and I don’t think I’ll ever get bored of this passion. I was born in Vietnam, grew up in Australia and have been living and loving the London life for the past 9 years. I have grown richer as a person in my travels and am grateful every day that I can do what I love.
How would you describe your photography style?
I am captivated by the joys and sentiments of the bride and groom on their wedding day. A day which should speak of love and captured candidly, without intrusion. I love to capture the moments naturally, I have a documentary style but also get the traditional shots as well.
What did you love about the day?
The most memorable moment of the day for me was when The Groom promised his wife infidelity during the exchanging of vows. Fortunately for Mark everyone had a laugh and the priest let him start again, promising to be faithful and to love her always. It was a great day, I just love weddings from start to finish when everyone has had too much to drink and then comes out the dance moves!
