Natalie and Peter - September 19th, 2009

The wedding of Natalie and Peter was truly a story about good things coming to those who wait. Nat and Pete met at university eleven years ago where Pete was studying medicine and Nat was studying education. After travelling the world together and seeing some amazing sights, they decided to begin their marriage in the same place they began their relationship - Immanuel College at the Universtity of Qld.

The chapel was standing room only, filled to the brim by family, friends and Natalie's year nine students who were thrilled to see their favourite teacher getting married. The walls glowed with vivid colour from the stained glass windows and there were very touching musical performances by talented friends.

As Nat and Pete walked out of the chapel as husband and wife, there was a brilliant, "Simpsons" reference made by having, "Garden of Eden" played on the chapel's organ. It was only fitting seeing as how Natalie and Pete live in the suburb of Springfield.

We all moved into the depths of UQ to take the location photos and ended up finding a few nooks and crannies we hadn't discovered in previous shoots. Natalie, Pete and their attendants, Nat's sister Kelly and Pete's brother Dave, were full of laughs and were great in front of the camera. Very soon it was off to the reception at The Summit Restaurant at Mt Cootha.

This is a wedding we had been looking forward to as it included a slideshow of photos taken on the day to be played at the wedding. We love slideshows as it allows family and friends to see a larger selection of images that they might not otherwise have the chance to see. The feedback from the slideshow was great with lots of very happy guests (and bride and groom) grabbing me and Alex and hugging and kissing us with appreciation.

We both had a great time shooting this wedding and it was nice to feel the love that so many people had for Natalie and Peter.

Nat and Pete, we hope you enjoy this selection of your images. Congratulations and all the best for the future.
