Have to confess that after choosing all these images to upload them on my blog,  I have realized, well…. reconfirmed!! how truly I love shooting wedding photography and how much I love being around brides when they are getting ready for their big day!…

Stunning Rach and her bridesmaids got ready at Rach’s mum house.  Loved her  colour palette of:  pink, green and gold stemmed from her Secret Garden theme. Bouquets were incredible pretty!

The Proposal:

Here’s Ash’s  story on how he  proposed to Rach, they met 7 years ago through mutual friends:

Rach and I had the afternoon off on the Friday June 1st 2012, we were overdue for a picnic so the plan was to prepare a picnic basket full of the things she loved (chocolates, cheese, champagne etc etc) and propose at Cornwall park in the sun.  However, the night before I could tell she knew it was coming, and I began to panic about the delivery, there would be no way to hide the basket without her knowing was what about to happen. So early that morning at 6am having hardly slept, I decided I would surprise her then and there, I set up the picnic basket by our bed and proposed while she was half asleep!  Of course she said yes!… and we still spent the day at Cornwall park having a picnic.
