June 6th, the morning was more than a little bit foggy and I loaded my car and headed off to the small town called Numurkah.
I had the honour of photographing Nath & Kels newest family addition, baby Conner 8 months ago so when Kel contacted me telling me her situation, I cancelled all long weekend plans to attend their big "small" wedding.
You see, Kels mother has been diagnosed with Cancer recently and Nathans father also has Cancer - so this wedding needed to go ahead sooner than later, and with COVID restrictions it really made planning hard. So once restrictions lifted for 10 people, plans were made and things were coming together.
The week prior, the restrictions lifted again thankfully meaning that we could have a wedding of 20 people outdoors so the closest family and friends attended.
The day started at Kels home with just the girls, and since it was long weekend and availability was very limited Kel found herself without a hair dresser, but that was okay because between her mum, friend Gemma and myself we did her hair whilst Grace was working on her make up.
Her daughter Lainey entertained me for most of the morning, then it was time to head to the boys who were at Nathans parents house, where the ceremony would take place.
I did not expect to see what I walked into, it was incredible! Slow cooked dinner cooking away, a marquee with so much detail everywhere, kids running around, beers flowing, florals organised by a friend looking just as professional - it just looked magical.
The bridal cars arrived and it was time to get this ceremony started!
Afterwards I found out that Kel had always mentioned how much she loved the big tree in her in-laws back yard and joked about getting married in front of it, well today was that day and she got married beside the gorgeous tree!
We then went down to the local creek for some photos of just the bride and groom and both sets of parents, which are going to mean the absolute world to the beautiful couple! The freezing cold temperatures weren't on our side but at least the rain held off.
All in all, it was yet again another amazing wedding that I was truly so honoured to be a part of.
