A WEDDING SECOND TIME AROUND / BYRON BAY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Older Couple Wedding Byron Bay Photographer

When you think of wedding photography, I bet you boho inspired Pinterest images spring to your mind; all hession and lace and that soft, soft light that seems to be everywhere.  Young maidens with loose flowing hair, bearded hipster grooms and fairy lights... ah the list could go on and on.

But do you ever think about the couple, in their fifties (or older) with grown children of their own, who have found that someone special to love for a second time?  The love is just as real, possibly even more profound and grounded, with a calmness that comes with experience and wisdom.

When Barbara walked down the aisle, on the arm of her son, beautiful in a dazzling dress of layers of soft silks and lace, the look on Ross' face was one to behold.  He looked so proud, so happy...so in love!  Perhaps it can be said that younger couples are so excited by the idea of the wedding, (and so they should be) that they get caught up in the glitz and glamour of it all, a lot of them saying they barely remember a thing about their wedding.  But I truly felt that this wedding, the one between Barbara and Ross was a deep connection, a oneness that was purely about them, not the decorations, the dress...anything.  Just them.

I remember talking to Barbara about the wedding photography and she said she felt a bit silly having a wedding photographer as such because it was in fact hers and Ross' second marriage each (both their partners had passed away years beforehand).  I didn't feel it was silly at all.  Who says love has an age limit?  Who says that love should be afforded to only the young?

So how do I approach being the wedding photographer of an older couple?  Exactly the same way I would photograph anyone's wedding, whether their the youngest cutest couple in Byron Bay or a glamour couple in their late twenties on the Gold Coast.  Exactly the same way. My wedding photography shows people in love on their wedding day. Simple.

Barbara and Ross own a beautiful property in the hills of Wyrallah that overlooks the valley on the out
skirts of Lismore.  The gardens are spectacular thanks to their loving care and the view is to die for.  So after the cermony in the cute little chapel in Wyrallah we headed back to their home to take their wedding photos in the beauty of their garden.

I hope you can witness in these photos, just like I witnessed being Ross and Barbara's wedding photographer, how love knows no rules, it doesn't discriminate and is alive and well despite a silly number we place upon ourselves. How lucky are Barbara and Ross to have found each other?
