I had the privilege of flying from my new home in the UK to my other home, Australia, to photograph the wedding of Soraya and Tom. I knew this wedding was going to be something different and special the moment I met Soraya. She is passionate, fiery, artistic, intelligent and as crazy about nature as I am. French born and having travelled all over the world, now settled in Western Australia, Soraya brings so much character and life into a room. I met Tom soon after, and his humour, kindness, calm and grounded vibes were wonderful to be around and absorb. It was mentioned in a lot of the speeches that Tom and Soraya are like Yin and Yang. they balance each other, and complement each other. This was so evident to me on their wedding day and was absolutely beautiful to witness.
I loved getting to know these two a little more by spending this intimate, wild day with them. Every minute of it was memorable and exploding with emotion. From the locations and scenery that had me seriously planning a move to Victoria, to crying with Soraya as she got ready and was overwhelmed with gratitude for every person that was part of her wedding day. From Tom’s calm energy as he got ready, like everything was completely right in the world, to the the vows that sounded like poetry. From the Didgeroo player that had me moved to tears, to belting out Creep by Radiohead with everyone on the dancefloor, with much enthusiasm. This day was unforgettable.
