A Thomas Paine Hotel Wedding - Rebecca and Joe

Finally! Finally these two legends were married. 
After two postponements and two years, Rebecca and Joe had their day… and what a day! 

Rebecca got ready at their home with her girls and she had all the little details ready for me when I arrived.

Her Dad arrived shortly before it was time to head to the church and, well, the man has the best beard in the history of the world. Anyway, before we knew it, it was time for the big reveal. We gathered her Mum, Dad, Sisters and besties in the living room and then Rebecca made her entrance - it’s fair to say that she blew them away!

Meanwhile, outside the church we had a flower girl and a page boy looking super cute and waiting for the bride. Inside the church, we had Joe - looking sharp and waiting for his bride.

Luckily for them all, Rebecca is a wonderful timekeeper and arrived bang on time and was escorted down the aisle by her very proud Dad.

The ceremony was really lovely and sweet and all sealed with a big ol’ kiss! 

Outside the church we had a bit of time for some confetti and some group shots.

And then the happy couple and I headed to some of the scarce shade for a few pictures.

We met back up with the guests at  the Thomas Paine Hotel for some speeches where Rebecca received a very lovely gift from Joe.

By this point, even though the cake had been kept in the cool, it was starting to lean, so it was definitely time to cut it!

After that, we had a first dance and a Dad and daughter dance.

And then, party time! And even though it was 35c, this lot still knew how to party!

And just like that, it was time for me to leave, so I quickly stole the couple away for just a few more minutes as the intense sun had finally sunk low enough to give us some of that good light! 

That’s all for this little preview, folks.
I’ll add one or two more pictures from this day to the Facebook and Instagram pages as I edit them, so feel free to follow along over there.

Huge thanks to all of Rebecca and Joe’s lovely guests for making me so welcome.
