I’m just so in love with you. Those were Rich’s words to Kirby during his reception speech after their beautiful Newcastle wedding. Everyone in the room nearly melted. And that’s just a glimpse of how much these two adore each other.
Kirby and Rich met doing what they love. They’re both athletes, with Rich having a penchant for a triathlons and Kirby being a marathon aficionado – she has competed in long distance running events all around the world including the prestigious Boston Marathon in 2015. The flirting all started during a chance meeting at an event and the rest, as they say, is history.
I had the privilege of getting to know Kirby through my dear friend Becky who was one of the bridesmaids on the day. The wedding was absolutely beautiful and the weather stayed dry despite a prediction of a 70% chance of rain. Sometimes these days don’t go exactly to plan and we got told off for going down to Glenrock Reserve (I didn’t know it was private property!) then had to trek down the long way through the bush to get to the lagoon. Kirby, you’re a champion for doing that in heels!
Kirby & Rich, you’re both wonderful people and I had such an amazing time documenting your Newcastle wedding. Thanks for trusting me and listening to my crazy ideas. I hope you enjoy looking through these images from the day.
(P.S. Rich & Kirby’s first date was at a coffee shop so this song I think is very appropriate!)
