Florence & Rob | Bendooley Estate, Berrima Wedding

I'm not quite sure how I'm going to really move on from this utterly beautiful day. Florence and Rob - when I first sat down with them at a bustling city cafe 2 years ago, we pictured their wedding ceremony to be just like them. That is: comical, hilarious, constantly giggling and sarcastic quips slung at one another at a rapid firing rate. Fast forward to their wedding day, right as she stepped down the aisle, Florence took one look at Rob on the other end and every single one of her defenses crashed down helplessly. I don't think either of them made their way through their ceremony with a dry eye. For someone who was never about being swept up by the romance or getting "rescued" by some guy, nor remotely dreamt about a wedding until recently, this was a huge deal for Florence. At her reception, she spoke candidly about how a few years ago, she found herself on a painfully long haul flight from Sydney to San Francisco for work where an incident made her realise how important Rob - the quintessential popular office comic and a co-worker she had started dating - was to her. She had been seated next to an elderly couple and through the flight, she couldn't help but notice the way the husband would constantly put his wife's needs above his. The old gentleman would give up his window seat for his wife, he would routinely walk her around the aircraft every few hours to ensure her mobility, he gave up his meal for her when they realised she was still hungry, he re-tucked her in when her blanket slipped ... it made her realise Rob was that very same man to her. True love wasn't about getting what you wanted or being deliriously happy all time time, but placing the other half's needs above your own and Rob was the living example of that in her own life. I don't think the room over at Bendooley Estate could possibly get further overwhelmed by this love and the enormous love every single person in that room had for this hilariously delightful couple. It's people like Florence and Rob that remind us of the good no-fuss things in life and I'm going to have a hard time forgetting about them and their day for a very long while. I am so ridiculously proud of these two and I hope you love the short collection of their wedding photos here.
