Helen and Lynne | Same Sex Wedding Photography
Same sex wedding photography is the same to me as any other. Love is love and this was essentially the message reiterated in the father of the bride speech by Helen’s father Bob.
It was a real pleasure for me to to photograph Helen & Lynne’s wedding at Coltsfoot Country Retreat on Sunday. Lovely people, beautiful venue, great speeches and lots of fun! These are just very small selection of the photographs that I took on the day.
A large board set out the timetable for the wedding and everything run pretty much to time throughout the day. The only slight disturbance to the schedule was a very short sharp shower immediately following the wedding ceremony. After checking in with Charlotte I made my way up to the bridal suite. It was full to capacity with brides, bridesmaids, parents and other family members. Lynne’s mother Jean was busy with needle and cotton. Helen was having the final touches made to her hair and the atmosphere was wonderfully relaxed. Lynne however was feeling a little nervous before the ceremony but she soon relaxed once it was over. I took a few formals with family members and also some of both brides with their bridesmaids, Rosi and Sam for Helen. Alice Steph and Sooz for Lynne.
Both brides walked down the aisle with their fathers, Lynne first with her father Mick and then Helen with her father Bob. After the first kiss and signing of the registers the guests all got a chance to take a few pics of the newlyweds. Fortunately the sun managed to break through the clouds and I took the opportunity to take Lynne and Helen off for a few portraits as the guests enjoyed the grounds at Coltsfoot. Charlotte and her team do a magnificent job at Coltsfoot and I always enjoy working at this fantastic venue.
Into the early evening and the guests were all seated on time ready for Helen and Lynne to make their entrance. Helen’s father Bob made a wonderful speech as did his daughter. This was followed by the bridesmaids speeches who had a tale or two about Lynne’s pre marital escapades. A beautiful summers evening followed without any further showers. I managed to get a few more Coltsfoot sunset photos before Helen and Lynne headed back inside for the traditional cake cutting and first dance. Pete from the excellent SPJ had arrived and set up for the evening ahead. Pete soon got the party underway with everyone letting their hair down after an amazing day.
