Some weddings are poetry brought to life.   If I was good with words, perhaps I could write something appropriate to express how they make me feel.   Alas, I am good with pictures and not so good with words.

So, here is a sample of the pictures I took at Alicia and Dean’s poetic wedding at Mount Tamborine.   The setting speaks for itself.  The couple, well they don’t need to speak at all.

Alicia got ready for her big day at ‘The Cottages’ – Mount Tamborine before marrying the obviously in love, Dean, at Cedar Creek Vineyards.   Over the years I have been to the venue many times.  In fact one of my closest friends chose it for their own wedding.  It never ceases to provide a wealth of new opportunities for great photos.   In Winter, it is truly beautiful.

Alicia and Dean, thank you for inviting me to record the start of your marriage.   Watching the two of you together is something special.  I can’t write  a poem to express it… but I can borrow one.  Here is little from Li-Young Lee’s “Blossom”.  It reminds me of you….

O, to take what we love inside,
to carry within us an orchard, to eat
not only the skin, but the shade,
not only the sugar, but the days, to hold
the fruit in our hands, adore it, then bite into
the round jubilance of peach.


There are days we live
as if death were nowhere
in the background; from joy
to joy to joy, from wing to wing,
from blossom to blossom to
impossible blossom, to sweet impossible blossom.
