When you look at Fliss, she exudes Disney princess. She shines. She met Ant at 13 and they fell in love on the Iona College stage. Theirs is a love story that played out around our local area – which, for a coupla ladies who are predominantly destination photographers, was almost surreal. Ant is the quintessential Australian cowboy – a well-moustachioed and very skilled horseman. This wedding day was a delightful cacophony of theatrics and salt-of-the-earthiness and sparkle. It doesn’t sound like those things go together, but when you see Fliss and Ant together it all makes perfect sense. Chuck in a coupla kickass wedding vehicles, some sunset dancing in a paddock and an awesome party and you’ve got yourself a pretty sweet wedding!
We took a few photos on the very stage where they fell in love so many years ago. They went their separate ways so Fliss could become a professional Princess at Tokyo Disneyland but the separation didn’t last. We reckon Fliss was hooked from the moment Ant rolled her up in carpet as a kid and carried her around. Soooo romantic 😉
Oh, and to explain the photo of the cow – the couple got a cow as a wedding gift. Now if that ain’t the gift that keeps on giving, I don’t know what is!
