Wedding of Amy & Andrew at Goondiwindi17 Dec 2011, Posted by Weddings in
Firstly and most importantly…2011 saw the arrival of our AMAZING little boy Isaac. Who would have thought that becoming a parent would bring so much joy and wonder into your life. Not a day goes by where Isaac doesn’t do something that puts a smile on both our faces. We are certainly proud parents.
Secondly, we have photographed so many fantastic weddings. I guess you never get bored with something you love doing and being passionate about photography makes my job awesome!
So to wind up 2011, we had the honour of photographing the wedding of Amy and Andrew in the very wet town of Goondiwindi on Saturday 26 November.
When we first met with A & A earlier this year, we had all of these fantastic plans of gorgeous open field shots with lots of sun rays shining down around us. Well….mother nature certainly had her own ideas. It literally bucketed down and water was everywhere!
Tina woke early Saturday morning and was so bummed that it was raining. Having already checked out the area for location ideas the day before, Tina decided to take a quick trip around the town to look for some new wet weather ideas.
But being our lucky last wedding of the year, luck was certainly on our side. By lunch there were beautiful blue skies as far as the eye could see. Yay!!!!
We arrived at Amy’s family home a few hours before the big event and the girls were all very relaxed and excited to see the wedding day finally here. Its really great to be able to photograph a bride to be in her family home. So many wonderful memories of their childhood would live in the walls of the family home so it must be amazing for her parents to see their little girl transform into a gushing bride. Amy certainly was a gorgeous bride to be (lucky Tina doesn’t get jealous with me being around all of these gorgeous brides )
The Holy Trinity Church was a really beautiful location for Amy and Andrew’s wedding. Amy looked absolutely amazing walking down the isle and Tina tells me that it was so romantic watching Andrew keep looking at Amy as she arrived by his side at the alter.
When it was time to head off for the location photos, we were fortunate enough to be given permission to photograph at the home of Tony and Jill. This lovely couple were the grandparents to our beautiful junior bridesmaids/flower girl. Tony and Jill, thank you so much for allowing us to use your gardens – you’ve done a beautiful job and we hope you are very proud of your achievement. We also hope you like this little image from the day.
We were also lucky enough to share a meal with the guests at Amy and Andrew’s reception. The Golden Age Centre was a great spot for the reception, over looking the Macintyre River.
We’d like to say a very big thank you to Amy, Andrew and your families for allowing us to share in your wedding day. We wish you every happiness in your married life and we hope you love the sneak peek below.
Nigel and Tina
