Although Lauren and Luke are true to their Christian faith, this was never going to be a traditional wedding. From what I hear, Lauren NEVER wears a dress and had expressed that she would most likely not be wearing one for the wedding. When we discussed the wedding day, the picture started to paint itself of a weird and wonderful day.
The ceremony was held at the St Johns Church at Maroubra Beach. It had been decorated with beautiful flowers and hundreds of paper origami chickens strung from wall to wall. Then there was a real chicken. Yes, that's right, a live chicken was to come down the aisle, apparently Lauren is very fond of chickens.
Luke's sister (Alex) would be Best Man while a great friend of both Lauren and Luke's (Ben) would be the maid of honour. Topping it all off, there were Lauren's boots and dark green corduroy pants. Luke was very traditional in his suit but I really found out what a great sense humour he has and he proved that he can be just as whacky as Lauren.
We were pushed for time with the creative photos due to the late departure and sudden downpour when we arrived at the first location so we ended up shooting in the rain and dark for many of the creative shots.
