Justin & Annick | Wedding

“Many a time I’ve been told I was too choosy, not giving people a go; Stupidly pursuing my dream of what I termed, “the impossible unicorn.” someone who is intelligent, funny, godly and incredibly, ridiculously good looking. But from the moment I saw you I was entranced. By our conversation, your beauty and I knew, I found one - and I've been captivated ever since. After our first date I knew you were special, within two weeks I knew I had to marry you. Thank you for being my best friend, my partner in crime during our whirlwind romance but most of all, for granting me the privilege of calling you my wife.”

I met Justin and Annick on the day that the two of them got engaged at the beautiful viewpoint of Bradley's Head overlooking our gorgeous Sydney Harbour. Justin had set up a beautiful picnic area to propose to Annick and just as he had popped the question and a loud round of applause came by - I had no idea what had just happened to I asked some random group of people who were present on the day.  This was only the second time in my life I had been present at a proposal so I felt compelled to come say congratulations. I took photos for them simply because I wanted them to have photos to remember that special moment they shared together. I still remember vividly how joyful the two of them were. The way that they looked at each other, I  knew I also wanted to be at their wedding day. 

When you have to beautiful families come together, it makes for a beautiful wedding. And I start with describing their wedding day with because I could just feel a strong sense of love and support of Justin and Annick being together by both families. As I looked around the chapel, there was a crowd of smiles as the two tied the knot and as they walked down the aisle together I saw that joy again that was so genuine. As well as that, the speeches were also a reflection of how appreciative Justin and Annick were of their own families as well as their new families they were marrying into. 

Thank you Justin and Annick for sharing your beautiful moments on your wedding day with William and I. It was definitely a blessing to be there for you both.

God bless,
Cyron, Captured Frames

Kieran & Clare | Wedding

"It's not every day you gather all your people in the same place and at the same time, and marry your best friend." 
It's been nine months since I quit my full time job to solely focus on my craft as a wedding photographer. I've always wanted to leave a mark and make a difference in this world so at the beginning of the year I quit my full time job and decided that this was where I was called to be. I've heard a whole bunch of speeches over the past three years since starting Captured Frames but one specific sharing really moved me recently where the groom spoke about how seeing his wife walk down the aisle was the best experience in his life up until that moment. I'm sure there's many other moments throughout a wedding day that a bride and groom can claim was the most amazing experience of their life but this is why I love being in this industry; I get to share and freeze in time those raw moments that seem to go by so fast in such a profuse day of celebration. 

Every part of the day holds a different emotion that I love seeing captured in a photograph.  Every feeling and reaction you could possibly think of crammed into fourteen hours of celebrating with those you hold closest to your heart. Memories are fleeting but I love how photographs are able to revisit those cherished moments. If you scroll down you'll find a photo of Clare's grandma looking at a photo from her own wedding day - her eyes were fixated on it like she was in a time machine. It was a touching moment not just for me but for Clare as well as she saw her adoring it. Weddings are a beautiful celebration of not just two people but also two families coming together and it really was something special to see everything all planned come together so nicely. Alongside Kieran and Clare were some of their closest friends who have been with them through thick and thin  (ps, you guys were awesome!). Thank you Kieran, Clare and the family for having us on your wedding day - we'll be praying for you two as you grow into your new stage of married life.

Jane & Marz | Wedding

Just like it's "good luck" for it to rain on your wedding day, can we make it a thing that it's good luck to have a broken bone on your wedding day? Two weddings in a row we've had our bride/groom with a broken bone - but lets be honest, Marz danced danced like no tomorrow with his boots strapping up his broken shinbone. It was almost as if there was nothing wrong with it at all...

It also did rain on our parade (lucky x 2) but nothing beats a great bridal team ready to have a little fun and embrace the weather.  Personally I was really moved when tears were streaming from everyone's eyes as every speech shared little story of how Jane & Marz had impacted on their lives - and how too often their actions were self-sacrificial and out of love of others.

Thank you Marz and Jane for having us on your wedding day! 
Love from the team at Captured Frames
