Jenny and Mark

Venue: Private address near Wollongong
Portraits: Wollongong Botanic Gardens

Even though lockdowns were a thing of the past (or so we thought at this point), there were still restrictions on how many people could gather at any given place. Jenny and Mark had just purchased their first home together, and made the decision to get hitched by their pastor with their nearest and dearest in their little backyard, by their gazebo.

The weather did have other plans, with a downpour forcing us to improvise the quaint tiny undercover ceremony space, which was already set up for their dinner later that evening. Despite this, there was a beautifully moving ceremony including prayer, readings and tonnes of heart.

We then had our quick portraits session at the Wollongong Botanic Gardens, not getting too far because of the rain, but still managing to squeeze in some iconic shots with some of the Gardens most photographed locations. Jenny and Mark were such a fun couple with so much love and sweetness between them; it was such an emotional and moving day!
