Yoshie & Simon met each other a few years ago. Simon’s grandfather worked for a car company that had business with Japan. Growing up with this influence made Simon want to learn Japanese.  He was introduced to Yoshie, who would become his teacher, by their common friend. (I happen to know this common friend. The world is small!) Things clicked between them very easily and they decided to marry.

After having a wedding in Japan they wanted to do it all over again for the people who couldn’t make it the first time. Because of the loveable uncertainty of weather in Melbourne, they had to change their venue at the last minute, but everything went perfectly. Simon told me in the end ‘Today was just perfect. Yoshie looked beautiful. Everything was perfect..’ He seemed very content and was filled with happiness and of course, relieved!

It was so great to be a part of your wedding. Congratulations to both!

 

二人の出会いは数年前、日本語を習いたいというSimonが、共通の友達を通してYoshieさんを紹介されたとこから始まる。(偶然にもその共通の友達は、私の元同僚でもあった。世界はなんて狭いのと驚かされる。)もともとSimonのお爺さんが日本に関わる仕事をしてたということもあり、そんな色んなことがSimonとYoshieさんを結んだのかもしれない。

日本で既に結婚式を挙げた二人。今回のオーストラリアでの式は、日本に来られなかった祖父母やこちらの友達の為と聞いていた。メルボルンの予測できない天気のため、ギリギリで式場を変えないといけないハプニングもあったが、そんなことを思わせないとても素敵な式だった。最後にSimonが「今日は本当にいい日だった。よしえはとってもきれいだったし、全て上手くいって本当によかった」としみじみ言ってた幸せそうな顔が、私にはとても印象的だった。

御結婚おめでとうございます。末長くお幸せに!

These two lovely people, who are from a differnt country met each other in Melbourne. Their friendship gradually grew into love and they got married last December. Josh told the guests how to approach her in his speech. It was a fun story and we laughed a lot.

Thank you for letting me photograph your wedding, Sunny & Josh!

A wedding is the day that we vow our love to our partners but also say ‘thank you’ to our families and appreciate the friends who stand next to you through both good and bad times.

Aimee and Tim are lovely couple and loved by their families. All the guests were touched by the depth of their family bond.

It was a great pleasure to photograph your wedding. Thank you for having me.

My dear friends Rebecca & Ryoma.

I was so honored to take their photos thorough their wedding day.  I could barely hold my camera still as I got emotional when I saw Rebecca walk the ‘virgin road’ toward Ryoma, who had tears in his eyes. I felt strong love from the way Ryoma looked at his beautiful wife, Rebecca. As her friend, I felt her nervousness, her joy, her happiness. It was such a beautiful day.

Thank you and congratulations to you both.
