Belvoir Wedding Swan Valley - Deanne and Matthew

One of my (many) favourite things about photographing weddings is witnessing different cultures and their traditions when it comes to celebrating nuptials.  From Scottish kilts and bagpipes and Indian henna and saris, I find it fascinating to see traditions from around the world being carried out in our little isolated corner of Australia. While  I didn't get to see any plate smashing at Deanne and Matt's Greek wedding, what I did get to see was a deep sense of family and connection that so often prevails in Mediterranean cultures. I loved the way everyone including the little flower girls, instinctively linked arms and knew the steps for Greek dancing at their reception at the Belvoir in the Swan Valley, while Deanne's Yiayia smiled approvingly as they kicked their heels to the Greek music. It is after all what makes a wedding - family, friends, tradition, and love.
