Well I’m back in Brisbane for about 24hrs before jetting off to Japan tomorrow morning. The wedding was fantastic on the weekend. It was a wedding that very much fitted the bride and groom (my cousin Erica and her now husband Ash). The wedding weekend was at Coles Bay in the Freycinet National Park area of Tasmania. It was where Erica and Ash decided to get engaged a couple of months ago and a place where they’ve spent a lot of time.
3 pictures for now because everything else will have to wait till I get back from Japan.
Saying hello to Grandad after the ceremony
This photo just about sums up the wedding 100%. The beach, playing in the water, having a picnic and a wedding as well.
and the cake, mmmm flourless chocolate cake and a very very good one at that. With the mountains of Freycinet in the background
Today, Tim and I had an early start for a Wedding that was very different to anything we had done before. Now every wedding is unique but this was Unique. We started the day with Vidya getting ready at 0830 and finished up at UQ about 1730. The above photo is just a sneak peak but there was colour, dancing, lots of people, food and happiness. I am looking forward to going through the rest of the photos in the next couple of days and I will be sharing more 🙂
Last Saturday I went to another wedding (surprised? lol no) with Tim. A nice casual laid back affair at the semi-local hotel for the couple The Glen Hotel
This photo cracks me up no end.
It is like, the little fella is going, no way am I wearing that bow tie, can’t you see the look I am going for here? Hands in pocket, the top buttons undone? all I need now is a pair of sunnies. Then I would be beyond cool.
Or this one, all three doing their own thing and the smoke alarm with a missing battery.
There was a fair bit of diy at this wedding and as Tim and I arrived at the house, they were all busy doing the flowers.
Or this one, they have just signed the marriage certificate and check out the face on their daughter 🙂 They were such a happy family it was a crack-up.
Is this car not a beauty?
These two photos are probably my favs, Tim was taking a few family shots and whilst we were trying to muster them, I grabbed these two. I look at them and keep on laughing at the kids trying to escape, the father telling the family to behave as you will treasure these photos in years to come.
2 Countries, 2 Hemispheres, 2 very different days.
Karl, like the typical Aussie Expat hosted a very fancy Australia Day Beach BBQ in Reykjavik. It was 1 degree above freezing. Still they had a beach, a flag, a bbq, Vegemite, three different types of Karl’s very own beer on tap. The photos are a hoot!
Helen, was assisting at her first wedding for local wedding photographer Tim Harris. It was 31 degrees in the shade at the Bride’s house. I had a great day though, holding flashes, cameras, flowers etc etc and taking a few photos as well. The whole bridal party were a great group and I enjoyed the day, though I was pretty buggered when I got home. 😀 I also hit the 10k mark on the 5d at about 1:59pm. She was 159 days old yesterday.
Australia Day also means the Triple J Hottest 100. Only two of the songs I voted for made it into the hottest 100, a couple of the other artists I voted for made into the list but not with the songs I voted for.

I had a much higher hit rate on the Triple Zed Hot 100. Like getting I think five out of the top ten songs.
