Here's a tip fellas (actually, a couple):
1. I know that typically, the wedding cars are the "mans" domain on the wedding day. But, lets be honest, how often do you put ribbon on your car? Rather than trying to figure out how it all works just a couple hours prior to the wedding... how about giving it a run through a couple days before hand. Nothing like a bunch of grown men huddled around a car with puzzled faces and ribbon in hand.
2. If you don't wear a tie in your day job... again, your best bet is to have a bit of a practice tieing your tie a couple days before the wedding. If your going to have someone "pre" tie it for you... make sure you can get it over your head.
In the event that you ignore these tips... itl'll make for an amusing couple hours. At least for us!
Normally Jess and I have constant smiles on our faces at a wedding... (mostly because the best way to get someone else to smile, is to wear one yourself). But at Ingrid and Carls wedding... we were just smiling because we had such a fun day. I think we found the "she'll be right" and just "shrug your shoulders' attitude of these guys a great way to be on your wedding day. Yep.. sometimes weddings can be stressfull - but, you know... just get on with it.. and enjoy the day.
We did all the photos on Ingrids families property at Samsonvale... its such a lovely area and we think it is always that little bit more special when the photo spots have some siginificance. Photos can be very powerful - its often the only way we remember things from the past. Couple that with a special location...... I gaurantee that one day in thirty or forty years time from now (when Samsonvale is a different place) these photos will be just so much more meaningful to them.
