A gorgeous beachy Brighton wedding.

Between the harsh sun, flies, wind, heat, picnic onlookers and nearby weddings, finding the beauty and getting the photographs is not always easy - but it's what I have to do. I love this Brighton Beach wedding that I shot recently.

Jane and Mick's wedding - Picnic Point and The Terrace, RGB.

The hardest thing about my job is keeping it fresh and treating each wedding as an individual event. To turn up with ideas, to be creative, find the light, use the location and try to understand how the couple interact naturally, how the family relates and then integrate all that into each frame while keeping it real and festive. It's about honouring what makes this couple, this group of people and this wedding special. No wonder I'm exhausted every Monday.

Jane and Mick were married at Picnic Point in Melbourne's Royal Botanical Gardens. The girls dressed at the Lyall hotel in South Yarra, had drinks with friends and family in the hotel bar, walked up Toorak Rd and caught a tram to the gardens - a great and memorable start. Celebrant John Byrne lead the ceremony with heart and fun - he is good. From there it was drinks, photos, fun, more drinks, dinner, speeches, more fun and dancing.
