I somehow got myself all the way to Noosa for this wedding. There was no hesitation though, I knew I wanted to shoot for these two, they were both so relaxed and accommodating, giving me licence to do my thing, which I always love!
On the day they were equally relaxed, which was great for me as I bumbled around Noosa’s busy streets attempting to find a vacant carpark. When I finally arrived at Jocelyn’s space she casually shooed me away to photograph rings with John and grab some food and a coffee, and I happily obliged, she was the opposite to a stressed out bride! Also, some of the best coffee I’ve ever had, may I just say, almost as good as Art of Espresso in Young…almost. If you ever go to Noosa try the coffee at the vegan, organic, paleo, hole in the wall cafe near the Sheraton (sorry, that’s the best I can do with directions!).
Noosa is an interesting town, a heavily beachy vibe (obviously), with an upmarket, glamorous sheen throughout the main strips. Being a Canberra girl, used to slightly hairy, rough-around-the-edges, op-shop fashion variety guys and girls I was a little out of my comfort zone, but I am always happy to observe how the other supposedly seven billion of us human’s live.
Anyway, about John and Jocelyn I feel ill equipped to comment on, apart from to give my perspective which is that they are two beautiful hearts intertwined in this funny thing we’re in called life and I was awed by their love and appreciation for each other.
Thanks, J & J, for having me photograph your wedding. I consider myself privileged to have made the adventure up there to witness a snippet of your lives together.
They have kindly allowed me to share just a few of their photos, and so here are a few from the day and from our beach photoshoot (so nice to have a beach as a background!).
