One of the guys in this family is Tom, and he was my husbands best mate when they were little and living in country Victoria. I found my husbands school books and laughed to see ‘Favourite activity: building cubbies with Tom.” They took this next level by becoming builders for the same company in Darwin. In fact, it gets weirder. They even had daughters three days apart, who both have blonde, curly hair. And both have been known to mistake their father for the other father which they can be forgiven for given that both guys are blonde, tanned, wear matching work issued hard-yakka clothing and drive the same branded work utes. Frankly, it's this kind of behaviour that makes Territorians suspicious of southerners. Anyway. In recent years, there has been a strong migration north; 11 out of 14 of this family now live up here, AND three of the children/grandchildren have been born in the Darwin Public hospital. That makes them a legitimately Territorian family by my standards. Unintentionally, we really celebrated their love for the tropics by heading to the beach on a sweltering hot, humid evening in the middle of the build up. AND THEN. I made them stand in the blistering sun to get these photos. I really push the boundaries of my professional and personal friendships... Either way. I love these guys and these photos...
Laura and Adam married in Darwin at the beautiful Botanical Gardens. She only wanted two photos of the wedding, but I pulled together a full gallery anyway. Here are my favourites.
I met Merrin and Cameron last year. I could tell right off the bat they were legends. They pulled together a food van, street party wedding on the road of Cameron's family home. It does happen to have one of, if not the best, view in Darwin.
Bex + Tom eloped on the Darwin Harbour. It was magic.
