Sarah brought her beau fiancé, Paul, back to Perth in early spring this year to exchange vows in front of their family and their best friends at the Bicton Quarantine Park. Sarah and Paul, who now reside in Melbourne, wanted to escape the “dreadful” Melbourne weather to celebrate their union in the fair weather Perth. The day couldn’t be more perfect, with nice sun light and clouds to provide drama to the photos when needed. The day ended with Sarah and Paul celebrating their marriage with a drink at the Little Creatures Brewery before rejoining their families for a private dinner.
It was raining quite a bit on Laura and Elvis’s big day. Amazingly as it was, the rain stopped just in time for Laura to leave home for the church. When we were travelling between locations, the rain would start pouring but stop in time when as we arrived. There is an old saying that rain on your wedding day is a lucky omen. The Italians even have a saying for it, “Sposa bagnata, sposa fortunata”, which means that a wet bride is a lucky bride.
It also appears that this myth comes from several cultures mainly from the Hindu with the idea that a wet knot is harder to untie. Since marriage is often referred to as tying the knot. Rain was also a symbol of fertility to agricultural societies, since rain restored and maintained the wellness of crops. Crops were peoples main source of stability and income so it was thought to guarantee a long happy marriage!
While we did get some raindrops, we managed to stay dry and had some fun capturing awesome images.
Thank you Laura and El for sharing your special day with us. We did have heaps of fun and it was such a great joy to us to witness the love between you two and the love you shared with your family and friends.
Thanks also to Charlene for assisting me.
