I had the honor of being a big part of my sister's wedding recently - being a bridesmaid instead of a photographer which was a huge delight for me. As well as invitation maker, music put-together-er plus I made the labels for the wine bottles that were the take home gifts for the guests. I also made a wedding gift of mounted photos that everyone got to sign which I was really happy with in the end.
It was the first wedding I've been to in about 3 years where I wasn't the photographer. But I still couldn't help myself in taking a few photos when we were getting ready. Kara looked absolutely stunning in her dress which was made by a friend of hers who did a fashion course with Kara at TAFE some years ago. All the bead work was hand sewn and complimented the dress perfectly. She looked good, she felt good and she was probably the happiest I've ever seen her.
It was a lovely day down at the beach at Point Cartwright on the Sunshine Coast, even with a few hiccups (like the celebrant being an hour late!!!) but nothing could dampen the spirits of the happy couple.
These are a few of the photo I took, before the ceremony and at the reception including the cake cutting and the first dance.
Congratulations to the happy couple, my gorgeous sister Kara and her new husband Grant :)
