I’m always excited to be back at the lovely Norwood Park, and Kirsty & Nathan’s beautiful, subtle 1940’s style wedding at Norwood Park didn’t disappoint. I loved all the delicate styling throughout the day with a fun spring bee theme running throughout and the 1940’s touches in the bridesmaids and groomsmen styling. Kirsty looked stunning; I especially loved her floor length veil which she wore over her face for their traditional Catholic ceremony.
However, what made this wedding truly special and sent me home with a huge smile on my face was the relationship between these two lovely people. The way Nathan looked at Kirsty as she walked down the aisle and throughout their ceremony was heart melting. Their love for one another is inspiring and I was so lucky to capture it during their day.
1940’s style wedding at Norwood Park
I’ve only photographed a handful of Catholic ceremony’s and I was interested to see how Kirsty’s & Nathan’s differed from the many Anglican ceremony I have photographed before. I really enjoyed the spirituality of it and witnessing people’s beliefs in this way is very humbling. After the ceremony Kirsty and Nathan were whisked away in their open top car to Norwood Park to be greeted by a pure blue and sky and beaming sunshine. They chose to arrive before their guests so that they could then welcome them into the house with a receiving line; I really lovely touch that enabled them and their family to speak to each of their guests as they arrived at the wedding.
I was absolutely delighted when later in the day we were treated to the most wonderful golden hour, perfectly timed after the speeches ended, and we went out into the stunning grounds of Norwood Park for some more intimate couple portraits. I have shot at Norwood many, many times but each time I find somewhere new and creatively inspiring for the couple portraits. This time we took (rather a long! sorry guys!) walk into a little patch of orchard trees on the golf course. I wasn’t a big spot, but I knew that with the glorious golden sunlight glittering through the branches we could create some magic and we did! I think I might have even done my happy dance as we walked back to join the party.
