You may remember Sophie & Ed from their Sydney engagement photos – if you haven’t seen their very urban, cool ‘love’ shoot you can click here for a squiz. Last time we were together they were holidaying in my hometown – this time the team at Angelica Peady was on their turf travelling to Cairns to shoot their wedding day!
Sophie dressed in her own home which gave us the ability to take some shots of her with a much-loved pet. We’re used to brides requesting a shot with their pooch but Sophie’s pet was of the scaly, slithery variety so we were super excited to capture these shots for her. (Yes, a snake – check the pictures out!)
Stunning Sophie was anything but a conventional bride – the only thing traditional for this couple is that like all brides and groom they are in love :) Sophie looked retro-fabulous in a red and white heart spotted dress and her signature flame coloured hair was adorned with a top hat fascinator resplendent with ostrich feathers and braid. She was a bold and beautiful bride and with wide eyes, red lipstick and a whole lot of sass the camera loved her. (And so did we!)
The week prior to Sophie & Ed’s big day was very, very wet so plans for a beach ceremony were abandoned and despite sunshine on the day Sophie and Ed said their vows at Freshwater Train Station. We were able to take photos of Sophie and Ed at many of the local locations including the Baron River, an old timber yard and some ‘very Cairns’ cane fields.
The very colourful celebration included hundreds of metres of bunting handmade by the couple’s family, a life-size Elvis and lots of glorious pops of colour. It was beautiful, unique and a real party for two people who seem to be absolutely perfect for one another.
Congratulations Sophie and Ed. We wish you love and happiness and all things wonderful as you journey through life together.
