The Story of Amy and Ben
Amy and Ben were childhood sweethearts. They attended the same high school but didn’t really get to know each other until they were about 14. Ben was a good football player and Amy used to cheer him on from the sidelines, even though at that stage Ben didn’t actually know who Amy was. Soon after this they started getting to know each other and then had their first official date during a recess or lunchtime at their high school, no doubt surrounded by jealous but intrigued teenagers!
After many visits to each other’s houses and a plethora of romantic love letters their relationship really blossomed and six years later Ben decided to propose to Amy. They were holidaying in Bali and Ben went down on one knee and told Amy that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. Amy readily accepted the proposal and in August this year they formalised their love by getting married.
Amy and Ben’s Wedding Day
Amy is descended from an Italian family so she had to curb her and her family’s natural desire to have a massive wedding. Instead they had a reasonably big wedding with 120 of their closest family and friends. The weather on their wedding day was superb for a winter’s day and the sun was shining all day. There had been rain in the week preceding the wedding day which meant that everything was green and vibrant.
Amy described her wedding day as being everything that she ever hoped for and more. She got to marry the man of her dreams on what she describes as her perfect day. Amy and Ben got married at St Brendan’s Church in Notre Dame and then had the reception at The Woolshed at Emerald Bank. Of course, as they had a lot of Italians at the wedding the food was amazing and featured cuisine such as Beef Wellington and Tiramisu!
After their wedding they went on a 10 night cruise to New Caledonia.
About My Photography
‘One of the things that was very important to us was making sure that our grandparents felt like they were a major part of our day. Zowie knew this and as soon as she arrived at the church she asked ‘where is the famous Nonna?’ Throughout the day Zowie made sure that our grandparents were captured and featured throughout the day.
Zowie has a very natural vibe about her that makes you feel instantly happy and comfortable. In fact we did not stop laughing and smiling all day! We chose Zowie as our wedding photographer as my best friend also had her as a wedding photographer. We were so impressed with Zowie then that we made sure we booked her 2 years in advance so that she would definitely be available for our wedding day. ‘
