What a day we had sharing in such a special moment with Shannon and Raquel and their wonderful friends and family. Just looking back on the photos brings a smile to my face and gives me a very real ‘warm fuzzy’ just remembering how awesome a day it really was.
It is always fantastic to have both of our girls, ‘Dormy’ and ‘Stormy’ involved in a wedding and our day started with ‘Stormy’ and Mark heading to Torquay to pick-up Shannon and his mates and taking them for a cool ‘Kombi Cruise’ around the Torquay area before heading over to the ceremony location at the wonderful Mount Dunned Estate, @mtduneedestate
Meanwhile ‘Dormy’ and I were collecting the beautiful Shannon, her gorgeous ladies and her very cool Dad. Wow what a splendid group of people to spend some time with and we had such a lot of fun as we travelled down the highway getting lots of waves and beeps from everyone passing by.
Now the weather on the day was a bit hit and miss with showers and a fresh wind however we managed to arrive at Mt Dunned Estate in sunshine and a rainbow with literally dark clouds and showers all around us. Decision was to still try and have the ceremony outside and so off we went, however halfway through a rain shower came our way so everyone dashed inside. What a great job the crew from Mt Dunned Estate did to achieve this move in a few minutes.
I have to say what a wonderful ceremony officiated by awesome Celebrant, Damon Hughes @marriedbydamon and all aspects certainly highlighted the clear and very obvious love that Shannon and Raquel have for each other and there were many moments of tears, laughter, joy and of course lots of love. Basically everything that you need at a wedding ceremony. Oh and the rain shower was very brief and the sun came out, got to love ‘Kombi Karma’ and Shannon and Raquel certainly deserved it.
After lots of hugs, kisses and congratulations with family and friends we were able, due to Shannon and Raquel’s awesome ‘Kombi Karma’, to head back outside to have family photos and then some amazing Bridal Party photos under the guidance of the fantastic photogs from White Rabbit Productions @whiterabbitproductions and videographers from Moon & Back Company @moon&backco . Very cool crew to work with.
We had a lot of fun with such an amazing group of people and I am so glad that ‘Kombi Karma’ came through for Shannon and Raquel and we were able to get some awesome shots to remember their special day as you can see below. However, all too soon it was time for everyone to head inside for the real celebrations of the day to begin and Mark and I headed home in kombi tandem with ‘Dormy’ and ‘Stormy’ with me thinking yet again as to how lucky we are to be able to do what we do.
Speaking of lucky ‘Dormy’ and I did come back later that evening to take the now tired but very happy Shannon and Raquel to their wedding night accommodations and they remarked to me as to how awesome their special day was and that everything was just perfect and they had the best day ever. Now you have got to love that.
