David and Sinead were married on March 12th, with a ceremony and reception at Farm Vigano in South Morang.
These two met when Sinead was 14 and David was 15. He was actually her first boyfriend as well as her first kiss before she moved schools and they lost touch. A few years later, as she was walking to her new part-time job, she saw David drive past and wanted to talk to him. She didn’t know what to say, though, so instead, she sneaked around to the back of the car park and “bumped” into him! They reconnected right away and have been together for over 7 years now. After 5 years, he proposed to her on his birthday, and they have been saving up and looking forward to their dream wedding ever since.
For this wedding, I didn’t have a second shooter, so I went to David’s place first before meeting up with Sinead as she was getting ready. When a minor 30 minute delay crept into the day, Suzie, the venue organiser, handled it effortlessly and incredibly. Nothing was too much of a problem whatsoever.
Throughout the whole ceremony, one of the flower girls would not stop playing with the “aisle of petals,” and who can blame her? It was gorgeous! One of my favourite images was of her playing as well as an image of the little pageboy looking into the front window of Sinead’s car.
From there, it was off to the party, where the dance floor really took on a life of its own. The passion and love between family and friends on the dance floor was some of the strongest I have ever witnessed, especially between David and his core group of mates—he was obviously incredibly close to them.
David & Sinead, thank you for sharing this special moment in your lives with me. You relaxed effortlessly in front of the camera and there was just no wiping the smile off of your faces, which made my job an absolute pleasure!
It’s so obvious how in love you both are and wish you the very best for a happy and healthy life together. I had an absolute blast with you and thoroughly enjoyed capturing these timeless memories that will form your very first family heirloom.
