Over summer I had the pleasure of meeting Tom & Sindy, who flew all the way from Germany to elope on the wild back beaches of the Mornington Peninsula. I was so excited when they contacted me to photograph their special day, we spent the next few weeks getting to know one another via email and met for a cold cider and saganaki the day before their elopement.

Tom and Sindy have lived in Germany all their lives, but a few years ago, spent 6 months working on the Peninsula, where they fell in love with the beaches (who doesn’t?!) and the working holiday made clear their love for one another. As a result, they made the decision to fly back to Australia to make it all official.

I will forever remember the moment they said their vows to one another in German. While I could not understand a single word, I still managed shed a tear or two. Thank you Tom & Sindy for inviting me along, it was such a delight to have captured your day!
