Sacha and Anna’s lesbian wedding at the Amelia Shaw Bar in Brunswick, has got to be the most colourful and unconventional, fun wedding I have ever photographed.
Sacha and Anna are extremely shy people. They didn’t want to draw any more attention to themselves than was absolutely necessary. So much so, they didn’t even read their own vows. Instead each vow was numbered on a strip of paper and placed in a hat, guests were invited to lucky dip a vow from the hat and read it in numerical sequence. It was magical. You had no idea who was going to read next or what they were going to say. The room was alive!
We knew marriage equality was a few years off, but we had no idea we would have to endure a postal vote!
So, when Sacha and Anna told me they were having a massive sing-a-long to Katy Perry’s – Fuck You at their wedding, I started warming up my vocal chords.
