Wedding - Hannah and Ben [Bundalong, VIC]

Hannah was my friend's little sister, who always kinda seemed pretty much the same age as me. I walked past her house every day on my way to school. We used to wear the same maroon checkered school dresses and black t-bar shoes. We both survived our formative years in the same town, then took very different directions away.

Fast forward ten years to an email from Hannah, announcing her engagement. Would I perhaps, maybe, like to photograph my wedding? she asked. Oh Hannah, I would want nothing more.

So introduce the love of her life Ben. Ben with is sharp wit, kind laugh and enough energy to make us all envious. I asked Hannah what was it about Ben that made her fall in love with him. She teared up a little, gave a small laugh. Those actions say it all.

Welcome to their wedding, held on the banks of the Murray River at Hannah's family property in Bundalong. Welcome to the love.

Hannah and Ben are surrounded by so many good people. Both are fiercely loved by their families and bestowed with the friendship of a mighty group of friends. It was the people that truly made this wedding what it was.

Congratulations to you both!

Hannah, thank you for giving me the opportunity to reconnect with you and your family. Thank you for reminding me of the impression I left on you way back in school. Thank you for showing me that love is just the thing we need to make everything else seem possible.
