What can I say about Alicia & Jonny? What a special couple.
So communication was a little slow. However, we managed and here is the story of their day, with a very special ending linked to FunForLife.
It was a lovely relaxed morning – the girls were practising how to walk down the aisle…
Natasha Kollosche was the celebrant. It was such a beautiful wedding, with tears, lots of laughter and lots and lots of love.
Because Jonny’s family is South American, they were getting married again the next Saturday in a very small intimate ceremony in the Catholic church, so they were going to be in town for a while longer.
I invited them all to a fundraiser I was holding at the local pub on Friday to raise funds for FunForLife‘s 2011 Haiti project. The Port Douglas community is very generous and there was loads of great prizes up to be auctioned and raffled.
The team at Sky Safari had donated one of their pilots to be auctioned off as a slave for a day, including a scenic flight for 3 people. Alicia’s Dad bid on, and won Andy and the helicopter. He also bought the portrait session I had donated. Then decided to put the two together. So the next morning, after the 2nd wedding, we all met at the Sky Safari base and flew up to a private beach location north of Port Douglas on the edge of the Daintree rainforest for the photo shoot.
Have I mentioned I love my job?
Then the rain came back and we stood under a big tree on the edge of the oldest forest while Alicia and Jonny laughed about getting rained on in the rainforest. What a great couple. I had a fantastic time photographing their wedding and hanging out with them. Thanks you guys, and thanks Sky Safari. Andy the “slave” for a day dropped them to Salsa after the flight and stayed for lunch. Not too bad being a slave for these two!
