Meeting In The Middle | Laura & Nathan

It just happens in a small town.

You get to know everyone. And while Shepparton's not technically "small," working at the local newspaper for nine years certainly introduces you to a lot of people.

When Laura called me about photographing her wedding... I knew her. Well, I knew her parents.

Laura & Nathan chose the Carrington in Shepparton for their wedding, and, as they wanted the reception to follow immediately after the ceremony, they decided to do a “first look.”

In amongst the trees of a friend’s orchard, Nathan and the groomsmen created a rose petal aisle where the husband and wife-to-be got to see each other.

Laura was excited. Nathan was edgy.

They met in the middle and laughed.

Then we sprayed. Due to the floods in Northern Victoria a few months ago, the mosquitos were big and thirsty. And they loved all of us. Ears, arms, legs, foreheads.... nothing was left untouched.

We raced back to the cars and headed into town for the official part of the day. The trees were starting to show signs of Autumn, the clouds were getting dark and you couldn't wipe the smile off their faces.

Nathan & Laura, I loved being part of your day! I felt so welcome and I am very excited to show you the rest of the photos.
