geoff & kate's beautiful, casual, wonderful wedding celebration

Written by Angela Penn on March 3rd, 2014.      4 comments


This is my brother's wedding and I was SO excited to shoot it. Weddings are so special for me as the photographer at a 'normal' wedding but being involved in my brother's wedding was just so much more emotional. Especially when editing them - I felt as if I got to live the day all over again.

Geoff and Kate actually got married in front of a handful of family back in October last year, as Kate's dad was very sick.  He did manage to give her away, something that Kate was adamant was going to happen.  Kate's beloved dad, Gerald, passed away four days later.  The 22 of February was the date of their original wedding, so they decided to celebrate their marriage - this time, in front of all their friends and family.

I do apologise in advance, if you've stumbled across my website, decided to read my blog - this post has a LOT of photos.  :)

That day it was scorching hot.  We all started off in the marquee to cool down and to grab a few quick family photographs before the kids start to expire.  These gorgeous kiddies are my cousin's children.

Our kids call Kate "Aunty Doctor Captain Kate". Because she is. And she has the medical bandage on the car to prove it.

Reception time!

Our mum passed away 4 years ago, and Kate's dad Gerald, in September last year.  Was lovely that we could honour and remember them both and we know that they are looking down at us, and would be so so proud of Geoff & Kate today. Although mum liked to say, she'd be looking up at us.
