After an amazing 20 years together, Tracy and Kim were married in their favorite place – their beautiful home in Rosa Brook, in the Margaret River Region of Western Australia.
The weekend of their wedding day was one of wild storms – heavy rain and wind had been sweeping across the south west for a few days. Luckily they had a ‘plan B’ in mind so the garden ceremony they had been hoping for was put aside, and the ceremony was set up in their (amazingly) renovated shed. The room was adorned with fairy lights, candles and streamers, and the centerpiece was the gorgeous arbor made especially for the occasion and positioned to frame the doors which were opened to look out at the surrounding nature.
In the late afternoon, in somewhat perfect timing, the rain and wind stopped and the sun came out ready for Tracy and Kim to make their way together from the house to their wedding ceremony. It seemed so perfect for them to walk in together and take their place under the arbor. They had been near-inseparable since they met 20 years ago, so it was natural for them to arrive at such a special day by each others side.
As they stood before close friends and family, I think everyone, including me, shed a few happy tears during their ceremony. There was so much love in the room. And as the Monitum was read out, that ‘marriage according to law in Australia is the union of two people…’ it was a wonderful reminder that the law had finally caught up to love! What a beautiful thing to celebrate!
Thank you to Kim and Tracy for allowing me to share some of their story and gorgeous photos. Wishing them many more years of love and happiness in that beautiful place you call home!
