South Coast wedding

After trying to take a few wedding photos on the weekend and seeing a real wedding photographer in action, I am in awe of their work! Firstly they have to be in a million places at once, capturing all the details from every angle and get the perfect lighting, it’s not an easy job.
Here are some details from my friends wedding, it was set in a beautiful garden on a coffee farm, think simple country charm with beautiful flower arrangements, a stunning white marquee lit with fairy lights and white paper lanterns and an incredible view onto a dam filled with water lilies. It really was a stunning wedding, Mike and Katie, I wish you all the love and success in the world!

    Beautiful, Lana! What a lovely place for a wedding. And you are right, wedding photography is not easy. I've done two and they were nerve wracking. I admire anyone who takes them on. Looks like you had a terrific weekend!

    you right lana – weddings aren't easy to photograph – i have done 16 to date and i've decided to take a break – they can be so beautiful but also stressful behind the scenes πŸ™‚
    they give me so much inspiration though

    Lana, how beautiful! Love the table with the painted flower! (Give me a star in the book for noticing details!). And the table settings. And the food! What a fun wedding that most have been!
