Nicky and Lloyd’s is the first Port Douglas wedding I have photographed since being away working on a documentary in Haiti for a few months. What a delight to spend the day with them, and what a wonderful wedding to photograph!
I spent a few hours with them during the wedding preparations at the Sea Temple. Nicky was a tiny bit nervous, but you really couldn’t tell.
Wedding preparations are amongst my favourite part of the day to photograph, an essential part of the story of the wedding. It’s also a privilege to be a part of such an intimate ritual.
A last minute pep-talk in the bathroom….., and of course the wonderful wedding planner Zoe Day on hand to help with all the little details.
Here’s Lloyd, trying hard not to look nervous.
I love that even after 10 years together the ceremony was still very emotional
with the fabulous Sarah Woods as celebrant.
After the wedding ceremony, which was right next to the beach in Port Douglas, we wandered around for a few portraits of the Nicky & Lloyd and of the wedding party. I knew this was going to be a fun session. Unsure about the weather, I had a bucket full of umbrellas ready to go…
Because we’d had so much rain over the wet, there was a little more water around than usual. Luckily this wedding party didn’t mind crossing precariously on a log which kept rolling… I had visions of one of the groomsmen, or the groom, going in – all because of the photographer!!
Congratulations, Mr & Mrs Flynn!
