The families were all very close, with an extra bit of Latino love thrown in with Jason’s Argentinean heritage. Jason’s dad Carlos kept the laughs flowing around the room as he helped the boys get into their suits. At times, there was a little competition as to who could out do the other.
Now I couldn’t bring Carlos with me to Sarah’s parents place but there was no need as the laughs continued with the girls getting ready. Managed to capture one of my favourite photos of the day with the flower girl Amelia sneaking under Sarah’s classic dress.
Sarah went to school at Genazzano, which added a lot of personal memories to her wedding day. Keeping with this personal feel we headed off to Alexandra Gardens and the Old Kew Post Office before touring the tram tracks, near the iconic Skipping Girl of Richmond, for photos.
I always like to see a good bit of emotion on the day, as it’s a sign of real love and commitment. The speeches started off with a few laughs as the father of the bride, Geoff, took aim at Jason and the boys with some stories. Things got a little more emotional when Carlos grabbed the microphone to give his speech. Jason’s brother Nick stood in, holding his dad, as they conveyed the joy they had with Sarah being a special part of their family.
It’s a constant reminder that after the last glass of champagne is drunk on the night the most important things we all have, are the relationships with our partners, friends and family.
