It was a year ago today Georgie and Paul were married. From the first time Georgie started telling me about their handfasting (wedding) I couldn’t wait to be there, and photograph it!
While my husband and I had a handfasting part to our own wedding ceremony,
I knew this would be a little more.
With their celebrant & priestess Seline, they organised a ceremony that was different from the “norm” but
so perfect for them. Before the ceremony, the groomsmen greeted guests with ribbons,
asking them to tie a knot, to impart their love onto the day.
You will notice all guests were asked to stand in a circle, to surround Paul & Georgie creating a
safe space. Barefeet to be in touch with the earth, drinking from a shared goblet and jumping the broom
at the end of the ceremony.
Stones of the Yarra Valley, a gorgeous location with the perfect trees for the ceremony.
The reception inside their barn full of light & laughter with their closest family & friends.
Lunch on long tables with shared plates of amazing food.
I love that no 2 weddings are alike, but even more those that introduce me to something brand new.
