Des + Diarna

Des & Diarna

Wollongong

Des is an old friend of mine, so it was an honour when he reached out to ask if I would be interested in shooting his and Diarna's special day.

Their wedding took place on the long weekend and while some may have been relishing the three days off from work, these guys were embracing a weekend they would never forget. Des and Diarna met overseas while working in London. As fate would have it, they both happened to be working in the same bar. Apparently, Desi was oblivious to Diarna's wooing but persitance paid off and she got him in the end. They both share the same love for their big fur babies, so it seemed appropriate for Des to include them in his proposal. Des had the ring tired around one of them but Diarna took it and said yes before he had a chance to ask.

Spirits were high throughout the entire day despite things not running as smoothly as they may have hoped. Unfortunately at the end of the location shoot their hire car broke down and without their mobiles on them, they had no way of contacting anyone to pick them up. Not long after, they were dropped off to their reception thanks to the kindness of a passer by who collected them. While this is the last thing a couple would want to happen on their day, it's a story they will look back on and laugh about in years to come.

Here's to making many more memories.. Thanks for having me Des & Diarna!
