A celebration of love and family

These gorgeous images are courtesy of the very talented Lauren and Glenn of Still Love Wedding Photography.  They are really nice, very clever and you won't even notice they are taking awesome photos.

Kylie and Charlton are cool cats.  Charlton and his best man Brooks wore berets and scarves with snazzy braces under their jackets.  It was June but an absolutely glorious Perth winter's afternoon - not too chilly with long afternoon light.

Kylie and her sister Lisa wore Alannah Hill.  Why wouldn't you?  Stylish, elegant and wth a matching fur wrap - and those red shoes.....

I loved Kylie and Charlton's wedding for lots of reasons.  We are similar ages and both have young children.  They've renovated (we are just beginning) and they are just super nice people.  With Still Love Wedding Photography recording the day, I just knew we were in for an awesome wedding.

Kylie and Charlton entered into their marriage with a deep respect for each other and their individual pasts.  Until they met, they both felt they might not experience love and happiness in their lives again but time proved them wrong and their ceremony was not only a celebration of the love they had for each other but of their family and its future together.

In a thoroughly modern romance, Kylie and Charlton met online in 2010.  They had two wonderful dates together but the timing wasn't quite right.  They met by chance again in early 2011 and soon after, Kylie and daughter Imogen moved in and it wasn't long before gorgeous young Hattie was on the way.

Kylie's sister Lisa shared the words of Sufjan Stevens during the ceremony:

Perhaps we don't like what we see: our hips, our loss of hair, our shoe size, our dimples, our knuckles too big, our eating habits, our disposition. 
We have disclosed these things in secret, likes and dislikes, behind doors with locks, our lonely rooms, our messy desks, our empty hearts, our sudden bursts of energy, our sudden bouts of depression.
Don’t worry.
Put away your mirrors and your beauty magazines and your books on tape.
There is someone right here who knows you more than you do, who is making room on the couch, who is fixing a meal, who is putting on your favorite record, who is listening intently to what you have to say, who is standing there with you, face to face, hand to hand, eye to eye, mouth to mouth.
There is no space left uncovered.
This is where you belong.

Minime Imogen carried the rings and as you can see, young Hattie nearly stole the show.  There was an abundance of young children at the ceremony and the joy and happiness was contagious.

Congratulations to Kylie and Charlton and my very best wishes for a wonderful future together for you and your family.
