CORY // The glamorous bride, Cory 👰🏻 Was so, so lovely making you up and getting to know you!! It's meeting people like you that makes me love what I do 💕💕 So happy to hear you had an amazing wedding day and I wish you a lifetime of happiness with your soul mate 👫
I didn't think shooting back in Singapore again would have impacted me the way it did, but in a way it's made me realise how blessed I am to have come full circle pursuing my dreams as a wedding photographer. .
It was right here where I shot my first engagement prior to packing my bags for Melbourne, & being back at the same spot 4 years on definitely is an emotional experience; seeing what merely was a lofty wishful dream then having grown into reality.
Marriage is about love, not gender - which is why I will be voting with a big, fat, resounding YES on my postal form when it arrives 🏳️🌈 I believe that marriage is a union of two people who love each other, and I am just so excited for the day when I can photograph as many LGBTIQ weddings as I can heterosexual ones [...I'm even more excited for the day when that distinction no longer matters]. But the most important reason as to why I'll be voting yes? Because I want my LGTIQ friends (and the community at large) to know that they are enough. That they are valued and treasured as equals, and that they have the same legal rights and opportunities as I do [because right now they don't]. It hurts my heart that the worst members of our society can get married, and that strangers can get married on TV for $$$, but that my LGBTIQ friends (who are some of the most beautiful people I've ever met) can't, and are instead harassed and abused and mistreated because they happen to love someone with the same genitals 💔 Even if it's not a binding vote - our politicians are going to look mighty ridiculous if they don't pass legislation on a majority YES vote, which makes me feel fairly confident that this WILL happen - as long as we vote, and that we vote with a YES! And if you are sitting on the fence about your vote, and would like to have a calm and respectful discussion/debate about it, please leave a comment, pop into my inbox or DM me with your thoughts ❤️🧡💛💙💜💚💕🏳️🌈

💡So great and rewarding getting such positive feedback from clients #bestjobintheworld "Rich and I wanted to pass on our official thanks for an utterly sensational performance on our wedding night. We are so grateful that you set such a beautiful scene for the ceremony with a stunning rendition of 'Isn't She Lovely' & never looked back from there! - My Dad's face when you began playing was just priceless. I couldn't have imagined a better version of it. So thank you!! From the moment we entered our Reception, you were topic of conversation... "Who is he, he is amazing, where did you find him...?" We have lost count of how many people remarked on what an outstanding performance it was. You really left your heart and soul on the dance floor and your energy transpired to the crowd. We had a ball dancing and singing along with you and we are truly grateful for making our wedding day so memorable". @unpluggedentertainment •
Timber, Greenery and White Florals - What's not to LOVE? 🌿🌿
This rustic arch with stunning florals by our very own Mel from @weddingflowersetc looks right at home at the beautiful @zonzoestate in the Yarra Valley ❤️❤️
Does this look suit your wedding theme? •
Another fantastic review from Mellissa & Sam. It was a pleasure to look after their boys and assisting them on their wedding day. They were the cutest page boy, ring bearer and best man. The best mans speech was the funniest one I've heard to date!
Happy Tuesday! I'm having a busy day behind the scenes - I've already been on the phone with Lisa helping to plan out the timeline for her big day in November this morning (which is getting me exciiiited for all these awesome weddings this season!!!) and now I'm off to edit and edit and edit and edit. Hope you all have a great day 😘 #lecindawardlovers
