It's taken me a while to get to these wedding photos, as I've been busy the past few weeks trying to get my best images together for an official portfolio site.
On the 3rd of September, a couple of friends of mine, Stacey & Lachy, were married at the Christian Family Centre. Fortunately the weather was quite nice on the day, albeit a little windy.
Since I had a bit of spare time before the wedding ceremony, I went over to the Bendikov's house to take a few photos of the girls. They had two official photographers documenting the wedding, Miriam from Capture Me Photography (http://www.captureme.com.au/), and another photographer Lydia as second shooter.
So many of my photos were taken candidly and quickly while trying to stay out of their way, mostly using a Nikon D90 and Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8 lens.
By the time I arrived they were taking some pictures of the bridesmaids, so I took the opportunity to get a few of Stacey on her own.
Then it was time for some bridal party and family shots. From left to right is maid of honour Sonia, Stacey, older sister and bridesmaid Laura, and friend & bridesmaid Bec.
They certainly weren't all sensible photos, it's more fun that way. It's probably for the best that the wind didn't change at this point, the ceremony might have been a little awkward if their faces stayed like this.

After doing a round of photos, it was time for the bridal party to head over to the church, which was only about a minute's drive away.
Out in the open it was rather breezy, as you can see with the horizontal veil.
After helping Stacey into the car and handing back the bridal bouquet, George drove the girls over to the church.
With no ribbons on the car, their arrival was fairly low-key.
Stacey looked quite happy and excited.
For some reason I liked these next few photos better in black and white.
With the bridal party all ready, it was time to go in...
