I took a trip out to the Sirromet Winery the day before the wedding to touch base with Angelique and familiarise myself with the surroundings. The sun was shining, wallabies were everywhere and the weather forecast said much of the same for the next day. It was brought to my attention that every supplier for their wedding was family. The celebrant, the photographer and Angie herself being the make-up artist. As I helped Angelique and her mother unpack the car and settle in to the beautiful Queenslander on location, I whispered to her, "Am I the only one who's not family?" Angelique replied, "Don't worry, Lance, you're family now" I felt a real warmth to this family and as I arrived the next day and started rolling, I really did feel like one of the family. There was so much love in the air and they welcomed me with open arms. When a family does this, it makes it extremely easy to capture the true essence of the day. I felt like I was actually a part of their celebration rather than just the guy behind the camera. This feeling carried on throughout the day and well into the night as the celebrations continued. Amazing weather, a beautiful ceremony, a perfect sunset, stunning landscapes, crisp wine, absolutely delicious food and a couple who are very much in love. Weddings don't get much better than this! Take a ride with CJ and Angie and their storybook feature film.
