Grant and Natalie contacted me before everything – before any of the bookings, before the folio and before I knew what I was getting myself into.
I’m so glad they did.
After a long correspondence over several emails, we finally met down in a local Torquay cafe. From the initial discussions (and after a few glasses of amber inspiration) it was clear to me that this wedding was not only going to be spectacular, but also an absolute honour for me to shoot. Natalie’s fun and bubbly excitement paired with Grant’s chilled out positivity, made me thrilled to see their amazing day to come to fruition.
The reception itself was beyond beautiful. Adorning the top of Lorne’s mountainous hilltops, are the Lorne Bush House Cottages. Mixed with a certain blend of ‘bush meets the beach’, these cottages boast some of the most enchanting views of Lorne I’ve ever seen. The wedding was spectacular in every sense. The groom and his best men checking on the swell, the bridesmaids fussing over bride, and an amazing group of family and friends beaming with happiness for the soon to be married couple.
I had only met Grant and Natalie that once before their wedding. Still to this day, I am blown away at their immense kindness, friendship and generosity. Just listening to their vows, the speeches from family and friends, it’s easy to see why so many people care for these two. We meet an endless amount of people in this crazy world, yet there are those rare souls who come along and can change your whole perception within seconds, those inspiring people who can fill you with an overall sense of happiness, just being in there presence. Grant and Natalie are two of these people. And everyone at that wedding knows it.
I can’t thank Grant and Natalie enough for letting me be part of there special day – and for taking a chance with me. You are both such an amazing couple, I wish you nothing but the best of lives together.
