When I met Sabina and Ken I was immediately struck by how genuine and sincere they were. Ok, if I was being honest the first thing I noticed was how tall they were, but the second thing was how lovely and kind they are. Over the last two years I have become very selective about the weddings I want to capture. My style has become very defined. One of the most important factors to me is that I connect with my clients, I need to feel that they would be friends had we met at work or at a social gathering. Since realising this is a very important element to the success of my weddings I have grown to enjoy my work much more. I shoot less weddings, but I love the people I work with. So when Sabina and Ken asked me to shoot their wedding at Milton Park in Bowral I was delighted.
Both Sabina and Ken grew up overseas and re-located to Australia leaving most of their family and friends behind. Their wedding was a beautiful blend of cultures and traditions with wedding guests coming from Poland, Hong Kong and Australia. The day started with a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony in the Coach House at Milton Park, followed by a traditional ceremony on the lawn. Guests listened to a charming string quartet on the grass before, during and after the ceremony. The atmosphere was delicious.
One thing that resonated through the entire day was love. Sabina and Ken were so gracious and made sure that everyone who attended their wedding felt special and it was clear that every one of their family and friends in attendance adored them.
Here are a few of my favourite photos from their day. Thank you Sabina and Ken for asking me to capture your most special day, I hope you have a truly magnificent life together. You are both such wonderful people and I’m glad I got to meet you.
