RETU & RAVI WEDDING // MELBOURNE

Retu & Ravi’s three day wedding / festival was unlike anything I’d ever experienced.

I arrived the day before the festivities kicked off. Everywhere I looked, there were people setting something up, waving hello to me with big smiles, making giant pots of food or twisting branches together for the Mandap / arbour. Everything was handmade, lovingly, by a family member or close friend. The sense of community and hospitality that Retu & Ravi and their family displayed towards each other (and to me) was truly special.

For the next three days I spent pretty much every moment with these wonderful people, there was lots of laughing, eating, dancing and happy tears. I was blown away by how beautiful the Hindu ceremony was, the symbolism, even the way Ravi rode in on white horse was pretty cool. Not to mention the musicians and dancers that paraded in behind Ravi too. Actually, it was all freaking awesome.

Thank you Retu & Ravi for adopting me as your token white guy and trusting me to capture what was one epic party.

A huge thanks to my good pal Corey Sleap for shooting with me on the first day.

ROSA & MIKE WEDDING // SYDNEY HARBOUR, NSW

I recently flew to Sydney to photograph this legendary couple get hitched. Between the two of them they have some serious skillz, Mike is a music producer and guitar maker, Rosa works as a graphic designer as well as the both of them being amazing musicians. Their wedding was held in the middle of one very cold winter at ‘The Rocks’, right on the water between the Harbour Bridge and Opera House. Special mention for the most incredible psychedelic red sunset, and one of the most killer playlists for the d-floor ever! #partyparty

Song playing is ‘She’ by my good pals I Know Leopard.
