From the second photographer Tim Coulson walked through Claire’s door on her wedding day he knew this was going to be an event like no other!
“Claire handed me a CD and told me this is what she wanted played in my car, while we drove from location to location during the portraits.” For all you folks at home, here’s the playlist.
1. This is how we do it – Montell Jordan
2. No diggity – Blackstreet
3. Shoop – Salt-N-Pepa
4. Beautiful – Snoop Dog feat. Pharrell
5. Trick me – Kelis
6. Return of the Mack – Mark Morrisson
7. Hey Mr. D.J. – Zhané
8. Get busy – Sean Paul
9. One thing – Amerie
10. You can do it – Ms. Toi and Ice Cube 11. Holiday – Naughty By Nature
12. Too close – Next
13. Touch it – Monifah
14. No scrubs – TLC
Claire’s awesome playlist, aptly titled ‘Gangsta Cruisin’ set the tone for the good times and great memories that followed, not to mention loosened them all up a bit in front of the camera.
Massage therapist and yoga teacher, Claire, met Australian Defence Force member, Paul, almost four years ago and bonded over, among other things, a love of food. So of course, when it came to planning their wedding day, tasty treats were at the top of the menu must-haves. “We wanted something that reflected us as a couple, something simple, relaxed and intimate, like a Sunday family dinner – all of our nearest and dearest together having a laugh and sharing stories.” Podfood at Pialligo Plant Farm proved to be the perfect location for this feat to go down!
Look closely at the photos and you’ll find some fabulous handmade details have been worked into Claire and Paul’s wedding day. Claire’s mum made her gorgeous wedding dress, while Paul’s mum knitted some lovely wool shawls for the guests in case the evening got chilly. Homemade jams were made as wedding favours with tags by An April Idea (who also did the invitations) and the floral centrepieces were artfully arranged in recycled egg cartons!
But the icing on the cake? When Claire announced during her speech that they were going to have a baby! Talk about ending the evening on a high note…
