Catherine & Rob wedding at Ocean Kave
Catherine and Rob's big day was my first wedding at Ocean Kave this year and like every single wedding I cover at the Kave, it was a unique and special day, one of the many reasons I just love shooting there.
When I arrived at Catherine's preparations she was already in her wedding dress and looking radiant. I love this part of the day for many reasons, but mainly seeing the character transformation and emotional change of the bride to be. When I arrive at the preparations, I normally find a cool, calm but excited bride to be. Then by the time she is in the dress and ready to leave, I see an extremely emotional, nervous and a ready to burst with excitement bride to be, all neatly rolled into one!
The weather was perfect when I got to the Kave with lots of blue sky and fluffy white clouds, great shooting conditions. I met with Rob and his groomsmen who were all standing admiring the ocean view. By the time Catherine arrived, the Kave was bursting full to the rafters with the guests and Rob eagerly awaiting her entrance into the ceremony.
After a lovely ceremony, everyone headed outside for some welcome drinks and photo opportunities in the gorgeous weather. Then all the guests filed into the sunset rooms for the wedding breakfast, leaving me to take a few bride and groom photos of the newly weds around the grounds of the Kave.
After the speeches everyone tucked into the always scrumptious Ocean Kave food, which was my cue to sit down and go through my photos and generally chill for a bit. I always put my cameras away while people are eating, I'm sure the guests don't want me hanging around taking their photo while trying to eat!
After the cake cutting it was time for Catherine and Rob to take to the dance floor for their first dance, soon joined by their guests, eager to join them for a bit of dancing.
I really enjoyed the whole day with Catherine and Rob. They and all their guests were a pleasure to capture. All the best guys!
