Back to The Vu for Gail and Craig's wedding this time and what a fantastic day it was. This was the first wedding I'd ever photographed where my wife has been there. Donna (my wife) is best fiends with Wendy (Gail's Aunt) so it was a little surreal to be working away with my wife looking on. Donna is the one in the blue dress and black hat. Looking gorgeous of course. (She might read this, lol) I started with a visit to Gail's mums house for the bridal prep photos before heading off to The Vu to meet Craig and the guys. It was pretty windy up there on the day with occasional downpours but the guys were up for heading outside for a few shots by the Oasis Suite as it was a little more sheltered there.
Gail arrived with her Alan, her father, and looked stunning in her Justin Alexander dress supplied by Gwenne Wedding Services as she emerged from the car. There were a few tears during the lovely ceremony, I won't say who but it was just brilliant to see such emotion and how much it meant to both the bride and the groom.
The group shots were done indoors as I had already got everyone soaked out on the bridge for the big photo of everyone. It was just bad luck with the timing for that one but for the shots of Gail and Craig on the jetty our luck seemed to have turned. The sun came out, albeit for about 2 minutes but it was better than rain. You can see from the photos that in those few minutes, there's every season in the shots.
A brilliant day as usual up there at The Vu and it was a real pleasure to be a part of it.
