Nick and Iveta wed yesterday at a very intimate Kiss & Go Wedding Ceremony. Held at celebrant Christina Towler’s home in leafy Ferny Hills, prettily styled with candles and white linen, the ceremony was shared by the groom’s immediate family. Sadly, distance prevented Iveta’s Czech family from attending the ceremony.
So many people now elope or hold very small, intimate weddings. What I notice as a wedding photographer is that whether I am photographing a wedding with 150 guests or it’s just the couple, the celebrant, and the wedding photographer (me!), it makes no difference to the couple as they are married. The reactions are the same – nervousness, adoration, joy. Those present will laugh and cry. Big wedding or small, what it’s really about is the joining of two people.
When I arrived at Christina’s home, Nick and Iveta were drinking tea, spending a quiet moment together before the excitement of the arrival of their guests. Iveta wore a long, white dress with a pretty tied back, while Nick kept things clean and casual in jeans and white linen shirt.
Nick’s grandparents, parents and sisters arrived, and once the forgotten rings were retrieved from the car, Christina started the ceremony. As part of the nuptials, the bride and groom lit a candle for Iveta’s mum, and exchanged vows in Czech.
Afterwards, we headed to a nearby field to photograph the family formal portraits and the bride and groom portraits. We were blessed in the last ten minutes of the wedding photography when the sun came out from behind the clouds.
Simple doesn’t mean it’s not special.
