rianna + michael {wedding}

This blog post is long overdue! My best friends got married earlier this year on a very warm summers day in January. I posted a sneak peek awhile back but never posted a full blog post of their wedding, so here it is! Rianna and Michael got married on what seemed like the hottest day of the year, im pretty sure it got to around 44 degrees celsius (111.2 degrees fahrenheit!), it was a hot and sweaty day, but full of lots of love and smiles ;) It was great to experience a wedding from a different perspective then just from the photographers, apart from taking the photographs, I also helped Rianna into her dress, drove her to the ceremony, signed the wedding certificate and gave a speech at the reception.  There is a few photos of me in this blog post, thanks to my side kicks Teneil and Micki for helping me out on the day! Also thanks to all my other friends who I gave my camera to during the night to take photos! ;) Their reception was held at Michaels parents property in Parkerville, lots of good food and wine, a great band played all night, paper lanterns and lots of dancing! Everyone was dancing on the grass with no shoes, it was a perfect wedding! :)

    Beautiful shots Samm and Rianna you looked absolutely stunning! All the best to the happy couple :)

    Sammy this is my favourite post so far. Thankyou for putting these up of us! I love it. And thankyou for all your help on the day (and always). To everyone that doesn't know, Samm was the maid of honour (just without the official title), and without her I probably would have got so nervous that I may have run off!! Best friend and best photographer, I am the luckiest!! xx

    Lovely photos.

    It's always nice to be able to play that extra special part in a wedding especially those of your closest friends.
