“There was a gradual realisation that I wanted to share my life with Tim and I couldnt imagine wanting to do it with out him.” – Justine
Justine & Tim’s story is one that spans across the globe. From long distance dating in New Zealand and Australia to a proposal in Switzerland, and ultimately ending up living in Sweden and working in Denmark. Throw in a family visit to Canada, and you start to see that, despite some of life’s biggest obstacles, these guys are soul mates through and through.
This wedding was particularly special for me not only as a photographer but as a friend. Tim has been like a brother to me since 2014, and I have always respected his commitment to his friends, family and chasing a meaningful life. When Justine came on the scene, I can safely say that his friends not only approved but were elated that he’d met his match. Justine’s wit and drive meant she could keep up with Tim’s grand dreams.
“The brain on this incredible woman continues to blow my mind. She challenges me and pushes me to new levels of growth each and every day. She constantly wow’s me with her love for people and willingness to learn new things.” – Tim
Knowing how much these guys meant to me, I admit that I was slightly nervous about being their photographer. I recall the feeling of dread when my Uber driver cancelled on me, causing me to be 20 minutes late to the bridal prep. But in true Justine fashion, there was no cause for stress. In fact, she was probably the calmest bride I’ve ever photographed. She was marrying her best friend, and nothing was going to rain on their parade. Not even the rain!! The ceremony was held at St James Church, Croydon, followed by an incredible wedding reception at Cake Wines in Redfern.
Needless to say, these photos hold a significant place in my heart. No doubt they will also hold a significant place in the grand romance between Justine & Tim.
