Real Wedding | Sarah & Chris | McClelland Gallery

Sarah and Chris first met at a friends wedding when they were unexpectedly seated together. Chris was quite shy around knew people whilst Sarah was quite outgoing and accommodating so much so she ended up finishing Chris’s meal at their friends reception. And So this is a story where the couple hit it off at first sight and never look back. 

When Sarah and Chris first came to us they really wanted a small but meaningful wedding. It was important to both of them to include Chris’s daughter into the day and Sarah had prepared special vows not just to Chris but to Kayla as well. 

Originally both Chris and Sarah were opting for a backyard wedding at Sarah’s Parents house, with a beautiful backyard it would make a great scene for a cozy small wedding that they wanted. When they saw The McClelland Gallery & Sculpture Park and realised that they could have weddings there, they knew it was the perfect place to hold their small but fun wedding.

The ceremony was held in front of the picturesque lake and as they both said their own vows to each other and to a surprised Kayla, the tears began to flow and people began to choke up. It was very meaningful and you could feel the emotion in the air.

IT was after the ceremony that we ventured into the sculpture park to take some great shots of the bridal party and the couple. It was the first time we had tried to use smoke bombs and although it was a little temperamental some of the results were astounding. Making use of the sculptures and the natural surrounds we were able to get some fantastic imagery.

Then after all the formalities such as the speeches were over it was over to the great band of Inkasounds  which led the party in all night fun and dancing. It really was a fantastic wedding and we had so much fun and laughter capturing it.
