Back in December 2013 I had the pleasure and privilege of photographing Chloe and And’s wedding at Trenavin Chapel on Philip Island.
I absolutely love Trenavin Chapel, although I’ve only shot this one wedding there I absolutely fell in love with the place. A bit of a personal story, the chapel reminds me of where I got married to Annie back in 2005, being a little white timber chapel with wooden pews and not very big inside. It’s also on Philip Island, where I spent a large part of my spare time surfing and bodyboarding back in the pre-children days 🙂
Check out the shots, and there’s a bit more about the place and Chloe and Andy at the bottom.
These two sneaky fellas had hidden a flask in their sporrin – what else are they there for? Remember everyone, kilts don’t have any pockets, you’ve got have somewhere to keep your flask and credit card on a night out! Had to take this shot for them and keep it a secret for Chloe to find when they got their proofs 🙂
Two brilliant blue Kombis that were just a perfect fit for the location – surf cars for a surf spot, and even the colours were a great match.
I get a lot of comments on this shot, people seem to love the framing and it’s something you can only really do with a car that has that shape windows, and there aren’t too many of those.
So it was amazing to pull up to the chapel for the first time, look out over that grey southern ocean, and feel that familiar south wind and a few drops of rain (let’s pretend it was sea-spray) on my face – just awesome.
It also helped that Chloe and Andy are such down-to-earth and friendly types, with a really fun and friendly bridal party, that it made photographing their wedding an absolutely awesome day. And I still have their thank-you card in the front of my thank-you’s folder, just love that view and that place.
