Fliss and Ant, Thornlands

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!
