The Groom’s preparation is often overlooked by couples when scheduling their photography for the day and I’d really love to change that. For me, it’s one of my favorite parts of the wedding prep because the groom and his friends are always having so much fun that morning! A lot of Groom’s feel like this time isn’t really important, because they’ll just throw on a suit and run out the door. But it’s not just about getting dressed! The important moments of the morning happen when you spend time with your groomsmen…when you have 5 men crowded around a laptop watching how to tie a bow-tie! Or when you can crack open the champagne or scotch and have a nerve-calming drink before heading to the ceremony.
I think Myles’ morning is a great example of what can be captured in your photos during this time. The boys had funny NBA-themed socks, paired with thoughtful engraved hip-flasks and perfectly tailored tuxes. Combining those personal touches with best mates and a few drinks and you have a really amazing and memorable morning with your boys, captured on film!
These Groom preparations were in the loft of one of the groomsmen, Anthony. His apartment is in Glebe, NSW and was the perfect setting for the boys to get ready. High ceilings combined with large windows created awesome light in the photos. Anthony also has very good design taste, combining retro furniture with modern, industrial pieces.
It’s just beautiful when a couple marries after many years together, with so much to celebrate that they have shared together. When Catherine and her Groom Campbell tied the know, it was almost a surprise to their friends and family after so long! Campbell shares his memories of their Modern Art Gallery Wedding.
“Catherine and I had spent a significant part of our life together before deciding to get married – close to 12 years! Friends and family had definitely given up on us getting married by this point – so I think it was a nice surprise when I finally popped the question and we could all celebrate together. As much time that Catherine and I had spent together, I was still nervous on the day… it’s a big occasion! However seeing Catherine in the Treasury gardens smiling and looking stunning in her gorgeous blue dress quickly dispelled any nerves I had.
Besides the intimate gathering with close friends and family, the wonderful food from Cumulus Inc and lovely setting at Arc One Gallery – one of my favourite moments of the day was being able to call Catherine ‘my wife’ during a speech… finally!”
