Marcus is in the US at the moment at the WPPI conference for photographers, learning lots from all the brilliant photographers from around the world who attend. I couldn’t wait until his return to share this amazing wedding with you. Actually it is two weddings. Nirija & Nathan had a traditional Nepalese Hindu ceremony and then a week later, a contemporary Catholic wedding – the best of both worlds.
Nirija & Nathan held their Hindu ceremony first, celebrating Nirija’s Nepalese heritage at a community hall here in Brisbane. The next week they were married at All Hallows Chapel and held their reception at Customs House. Nirija is beautiful. Stunningly elegant in both her sari and the Ronald Joyce gown she chose for her All Hallows wedding. Her hair & makeup was done by Smoke and Mirrors beauty (not that you need it Nirija), and Bliss Floral Design provided the flowers. I keep looking at the images from this wedding – because well, there is just so much to look at. I think what strikes me most, is the way they look at each other. Then I notice how their guests look at them and I know they see that deep connection too.
Over the past couple of years, I have been quite touched by the diversity of the weddings we have seen at Studio Impressions. I know that Marcus just loves that he gets to be witness to ceremonies from all over the world. It teaches us so much about different cultures and traditions, and opens us to a world full of life and colour. Some weddings are filled with ceremony and ritual, and some are simple understated gestures. They are all beautiful for they all have in common one thing – the love of two people. This might out me as a tragic 90s romantic, but I can’t help think of that classic line from Notting Hill: “After all, I’m just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.”
You can see that in Nirija & Nathan’s wedding. This is a girl standing in front of a boy, asking her to love him. And he does. Nirija & Nathan from all of us at Studio Impressions, we wish you the best of all the world, always.
