I was late to the the wedding because… we were having too much fun at the fair


“I was late to the wedding because…” is a series we are currently working our little hearts out on. It is a series of 12 shoots, all with an outrageous reason why a bride (or groom) might be late to their own wedding. It’s about having fun and doing something different. We have used a mixture of real brides and in some cases a friend who was willing to have a bit of fun and dress up. We are also promoting local wedding vendors – so with each shoot I will include all of the people who have helped and donated their time and wares. They feature our Couture Bridal Portraits (there is more info on these below.)

Andrew and Talitha were married last year but after talking with us, they were keen to do something a little different.
After many emails with Talitha, I knew she and Andrew would be perfect for a fun fair shoot we had been dying to make happen. We wanted a certain look – 50’s inspired hair and makeup which was perfectly created by Sofia Rodi and I knew we had to have a lollipop bouquet and thankfully Kat from Petals and Leaves made it a reality – she even created two lollipop buttonholes for Andrew.

The Hawkesbury Show happens 1 weekend a year in Richmond. This smaller sister show of the Royal Sydney Easter Show was the perfect opportunity to shoot our 50’s Fun Fair bridal shoot. We knew we wanted to have fun on all the rides and games – we weren’t sure what games there would be but we had an idea of what we were hoping for. We made sure we headed for the carousel – we thought these would be our favourite images but it wasn’t until Tali and Andrew said they were happy to go on the swinging chairs that the magic started to happen – of course I have to mention Ben here – he was the one who suffered a little (he would say a lot) by being up in the chairs with Tali and Andrew – only he was riding backwards and looking through a camera lens. Needless to say, he was feeling a little queesy after the ride. I got to keep my feet firmly on the ground and capture the ride from a different perspective.

Couture Bridal Portraits are a new service that Angelica Peady Photography is now offering. We create editorial images that are created in consultation with you for you.
It’s a perfect way to cure the post wedding blues and dress up in your wedding attire again – simply because you can. We love the chance to be creative and come up with outrageous ideas that reflect who you are. We supply the hair and makeup artists, the flowers, accessories and all the concept designs.
