The Best of You | Sally & Lisa

This is a wedding I’ll never forget.

It wasn’t that much different from most weddings I photograph on a Saturday… proud families, fabulous friends, great details, a bridal dance, speeches and two people completely in love.

Except it was different.

It was my first commitment ceremony.

Sally & Lisa have been together for eight years and while they both laugh and tell you it wasn’t love at first sight, they know they are perfect for each other.

They first saw each other on their wedding day at the Barwon Heads bluff. We took some photos, went back to Sally’s parents house, had some drinks then headed to Truffleduck for their ceremony.

Their very proud Dad’s got to walk their daughters down the aisle at the same time. They entered from opposite sides of the garden and walked on the outer edges of the lined up chairs. After their “I do’s,” they held hands and walked together down the middle aisle.

Sally & Lisa both wrote their own vows and they were amazing. Sometimes couples don’t worry about what their vows say. I think they’re one of the most important things you will ever say to each other so I love when they’re personal and from the heart.

This is my favorite little part of Lisa’s vows:

“I promise to give you the best of myself, and to ask of you no more than you can give. I promise to cherish you, and to always hold you in the highest regard, to love, trust and respect you whatever may come. I promise to be faithful, to listen to your needs, to support you in your dreams and comfort you when life is tough. I promise to build you up when you are down and remind you of just how wonderful you are.”

See, not that different after all…

Sally & Lisa, I feel so lucky to have been there to witness your beautiful wedding. I hope one day soon I can photograph your marriage.


Their first look was at the Barwon Heads Bluff.


My favourite.
