This is the first Macedonian Wedding I have photographed and it was truly awesome. I covered the bride and her bridesmaids getting ready from ten in the morning and my assistant covered the ‘boy’s getting ready. Their getting ready though comes with a tradition of a three course meal, gifts, partying and dancing! The wedding was held in the little Macedonian church on Angove St, Perth and the priest was quite the most delightful man. Throughout the ceremony, which was very long and entertaining, he would halt proceedings if he considered some photos needed to be taken. He didn’t mind me moving around and catching the moments too. There are many traditions which are quite magical – the crowning of the bride and groom being one of them. Would I photograph another Macedonian Wedding if asked? Yes, in a heartbeat. It was a truly joyful day and evening. The couple had their reception at Matilda Bay and danced for half the night. It was so memorable. I loved every minute of it.
