I met Elle and Kyle one week out from their wedding! Yes you did read that right. Some last minute circumstances meant they were looking for a wedding photographer one week before their wedding, and I had photographed Elle's maid of honours wedding, the gorgeous Ana, 3 years before! Of course I absolutely love photographing people I know's weddings, it just makes it even more comfortable and connected and its awesome seeing people you know again throughout the day and night!
We chatted over coffee and did a quick 101 getting to know you, and organised the wedding day, they were having a first look because of a late ceremony and an early reception, which was perfect, even though it was one of the only 40 degree days we had in Perth this summer!
Elle relaxed the minute she saw Kyle. It was instant. He is obviously such a calming presence and I could see instantly that these two were made for each other. They had a hilarious and calm bridal party, (all from the paramedic/nursing industry I think!) and we had a beautiful afternoon at the Fremantle Arts centre for the first look, then Point Walter for the ceremony.
Elle and Kyle's speeches were incredible. There is no denying this is my favourite part of the night. I LOVE hearing more about people, and even though I don't know the couples personally often, I still laugh along and in this instance cried along with them all too. My cheeks hurt by the end of the night.
Elle & Kyle I love that the stars aligned and I was able to capture your special day. And special it truly was!!!
