A Gympie Wedding
Please click on photos to enbiggen.
The couple involved are my dear friends Ken and Jackie, they have been a couple for just a little more than the 15 years that I have known them, both had previous marriages that had not worked out, but that aside this is a couple who tick all the boxes for what it will take to be happy together for life.
I mentioned the honor of being asked to do the wedding photos, I made no mention of the terror I felt in case I stuffed them all up, just to add a little extra pressure... Ken is one of the best photographers I know and to live up to the standards that I knew he would expect... well lets just say it was a pressure cooker situation.
Enough about me though, it was a wonderful wedding, the guests consisted mainly of family members from both sides and a few very close friends, again I felt honored to be among those friends.
There were 5 of Ken and/or Jackie's children and I think 10 grandchildren, a lot of these people didn't know each other at all well but it was a joy to watch how beautifully they blended together, especially the grandkids who regardless of age or family played, mingled, danced and generally enjoyed the company of the others, a sure sign I believe that they have been brought up by loving and caring parents.
I also made mention of the fact that Ken is an excellent photographer, to reinforce this view I am including a link to his blog;
This site is a photographers heaven there are many examples of Ken's work and the best tutorials I have come across anywhere.... AND... by scrolling down the page just a little until you come across "The Wedding" on the sidebar you can join in the fun of being there.
I hope you enjoy the adventure.
And as a grand finale.. the vision in black at the extreme left is.. guess who.
