Praying for a perfect sunny day may not always deliver the best wedding photos.
Aleisha Clark and Marcus Welsh’s photographer was lucky to capture some amazing images with storm clouds for their vineyard wedding on October 31, 2015. “It made for the perfect backdrop over looking the Tamar Valley,” says Aleisha, aged 28 of her wedding to Marcus, 27. “The sky was dark but the rain stayed afar.”
The nurse and banker married at Elmslie Estate in Launceston, Tasmania, with 84 guests who travelled from the mainland, Canada and Japan. Live entertainment from the Baker Boys Band provided the music at the ceremony, where Aleisha walked down the aisle to Christina Perry’s “A Thousand Years.”
The bride handled her own venue decorations, preparing for a year beforehand. “I put together the reception décor such as small medicine jars wrapped in pearls which had an array of native flowers, DIY menu wraps, family wedding photos and bunting,” smiles Aleisha.
The couple honeymooned in Malaysia – the same location where Marcus proposed.
