Gemma first met Melissa & James as they eagerly awaited the birth of their daughter, Holly! From then the love between them was so infectious, and when they announced their wedding date, we couldn’t have been more excited! Such a special date! 11/11/11! For the last few months Melissah has shared their plans with us, and we wondered if the calmly organised bride would stay that way on the day
We arrived in Adelaide and met up the evening before the wedding and met James’s family, flown in from England, and sure enough, here was our beautifully calm bride. Would she be calm the next day?! Of course she was! Little Holly looked just as beautiful as her mother and can I say one of the best behaved babies I’ve ever seen! James had let us in on a little secret a few months before, that Melissah’s dream of a horse & carriage would be waiting to take her to the ceremony. We managed to hid our giggles as Melissah told us how funny it will be to get a photo of a bride getting out of the hired mini-bus!
Another secret we were privy to, was not only were Melissah & James getting married that day, but the guests had another surprise – Holly was also having her Naming Day!
The weather sure put on a spectacular day, and Melissah & James treated the guests to poker tables (with the money honouring Holly) and also a dedicated photobooth. Of course Janet & I jumped in on the fun with the photobooth, but those images will wait for another day!
It was an amazing wedding, we had a such a ball. It’s been a wonderful journey for us with Melissah & James, and now your families – Photographing such amazing memories in your lives. We both cannot wait to continue the journey with you. We hope you enjoy your showcase of your special day!
xx Gemma & Janet
