It’s not every day we get to combine our two favourite things – travelling and photography – but every so often a generous couple like Gabby and Gareth provide us that opportunity. We turned up in Thailand and were glad we had arrived with a day to acclimatise – it was hot and humid! So much so that going outside our air-conditioned room caused all our lenses to fog. While the heat was an obstacle, we had on our side an attractive couple and scenery.
Gareth proposed to Gabrielle in South Africa where she grew up. Their choice of Phuket for their wedding was due to it being between South Africa and Australia, so both families could easily travel and share the day. The Jewish ceremonies scattered throughout the day were full of energy and warmth, matched by the stunning beach sunset that seemed to go on forever – something you never get working on the eastern coast of Australia.
