This is a wedding I hold very close to my heart. I shot this in April this year at the scenic Gardens House at the Melbourne Botanic Gardens. Amanda & Brian are the kind of people who welcome you into their lives like family and I am forever grateful to have had the chance to meet them and be the one to capture their beautiful wedding. Everything about it was intimate, meaningful and full of heart. The beautiful story of how they met overseas, fell in love and were engaged 4 months later is something you would expect to read in a romantic novel. Brian told me: "I proposed to Amanda when she came to Ireland for the second time in November 2012. I proposed on a beach on sunny day (very rare in Ireland) in Doire Fionn, Co. Kerry. For the two weeks prior, I had taken Amanda on a trip around Ireland in my VW Polo 2000. It was the fourth time we had met in person." Amanda said YES! in an instant. They have the kind of love that can't be ignored and their warmth radiates to all who surround them. Their wedding is also featuring on Hello May.
