Somehow, love always has a way. I keep thinking that I seem to end up all over the earth photographing weddings for couples who have the most unlikely ways of meeting and strange ways of staying together. And sometimes, I even photograph weddings which are pretty much strung together at the last minute. But these two amazing women figured it out and made it all work – their hard work, resourcefulness and pure grit brought it all together. They inspired me and it’s honestly an honour to photograph couples whose love for each other can surpass anything that gets in their way.
Fontaine and Nicola, aka Fonze and Pickle had planned on having their wedding at a well known wedding venue on the outskirts of Melbourne. But due to some legal issues with the venue’s license, just around 6 weeks out from their wedding day, they were forced to change their plans. They hunted all over Melbourne to find something that would have the right kind of vibe for them but alas, nothing worked, everything was booked out. But in the end, they found the most perfect venue, one which literally, would make them feel at home. The backyard of the house which they’d just bought a few months earlier, was the perfect fit.
And so, their love, had a way to flourish and to celebrate again. And holy moly, didn’t they celebrate.
