Luke and Rebecca were the winners of our Love smile Snap contest, which we ran for the very first time in 2013. Well, it wasn’t exactly them. Luke’s sister, Marnie entered the contest on their behalf and got them over 500 votes. She is the very pregnant matron of honour you see in the pictures.
The flow of the day did not stick to the Australian way of doing things. Prior to the ceremony, Luke and Rebecca had a reveal moment. For those who don’t know what that is; the bride and groom get to see each other prior to the ceremony. Apparently it’s a big thing in the USA. Anyways, we had a bit of fun with it. I asked Luke not to look for a moment and got the best man to describe how Rebecca looked in her wedding dress. That got everyone in a fun mood and we managed to sneak in some memorable images of the special moment.
An amazingly beautiful detail was the little frame on Rebecca’s bouquet. It held a photo of her dad who had passed away about a year prior to the wedding. It was a touching way of making him part of the special day.
This gives you an insight to how gentle and loving Luke and Rebecca are. It was an absolute joy to photograph them and be part of their special day.
