Dear Erica + Beau

I honestly don’t even know where to start.

Words alone cannot express how grateful for the trust you placed in us. To say that we left your wedding on a high (emotionally and from the sweets that you packed for us for our road trip back to Sydney) is an understatement!

There are weddings and then there are weddings like yours.

Thank you for having us be the custodians of your wedding memories. I only hope that the photos you will see here does your wedding memories justice.

Enjoy!

Prologue

The morning that was ..

I bet you will never forget the lead up to your wedding ceremony Erica.

Beau, as you were in Sutton Forest with your family, Erica had spent the morning at Surry Hills. She had parked the car at Newtown before hopping in a taxi to get to the hairdressing parlour.

However, what we didn’t realise until too late was that when we had left Sterling and cabbed our way back to the car, Erica had left her keys back at Sterling.

So what ensued (whilst not pictured) was a teeny weeny bit of stress as we waited for the keys to be delivered to us.

I think your mum approves of the bridal car Beau.

The Southern Highlands is a stunning region by itself and I am so glad that you guys picked such a lovely spot for your wedding day.

But not only that, I love the aesthetic vision you had. The day certainly had a vintage vibe to it, not forced but felt true to who you were – from the vintage wedding dress that you bought Erica and subsequently altered yourself, to all the decor at the ceremony and reception venue.

It was such a joy to photograph, She Design did an amazing job.

After collecting your car keys, driving home, and getting changed, you were ready to get married!

As we journeyed to Montrose Berry Farm, your guests had gathered as they waited patiently for your arrival.

Wedding Ceremony

This is the moment you have been waiting for.

Beau waits eagerly as your brother walks you down the aisle.

From the very beginning through to the hugs and kisses towards the end of your wedding ceremony, there was raw emotion all around.

I absolutely love the bouquet that your sister made for you.

The wedding day is never about the wedding photos by dayam guys – you nailed it!

Remember this moments Erica?

I recall you telling me that you had been taking guitar lessons in secret and I had been looking forward to this.

The pure joy on Beau’s face when he realised what you had gifted him with … priceless.

It was an incredible honour to be in that room on that particular evening and then to witness the dancing beneath the willow tree – thank you for the experience.

I am so glad that you choose us to be your wedding photographers.
