Wende and Leigh, The Bridge Hotel

 The Bridge Hotel

Wende and Leigh’s wedding at the Bridge Hotel in Mordialloc, (and some awesome rain and rainbow shots on the beach afterwards, in July 2013.

Larry and I went out to shoot Wende and Leigh’s wedding with eyes towards the heavens – it was looking like it was going to be touch-and-go (at best!) in regard to the weather. Although the Bridge Hotel has an awesome function room that’s perfect for a rainy-day wedding, we’d already talked with Wende about her shots afterwards.

Wende had told me when we met some months before “We’re going out to the beach for out photos – I don’t care what the weather’s like. So bring your wet-weather gear and I hope the cameras are waterproof!”.

Needless to say it did rain – but Wende’s determination to go out and get her shots meant that we were able to get some beautiful rainbow and sunset shots – check them out below.

Here are a few of the sunset shots that really worked for us with the weather. You don’t always get this opportunity, but when it comes you’ve got to grab it!

Same with some of these rainbow shots – I’m not really a rainbows and unicorns kind of guy, but check out that sky!

A Thank You card shot

I really like this idea for your thank-you cards, there’s lots of ways you can do it and I reckon they’re a cute way to say thanks to all the guests, shows you were thinking about them too on your big day.
