How sweet it was...

Just off the plane from Melbourne. Great to catch up with Amoena and learn what is new. And also to attend my cousin's wedding. Cathy is a breast cancer survivor of nearly 12 years now.. and one of the main reasons I get so passionate about what we do at Spirit Of Life. On saturday Cathy married her sweetheart Allan at a great family wedding held at her parent's home in Aberfeldie.

It was so good to see this wonderful woman getting on with her life after raising 2 wonderful girls from her first marriage almost on her own. With over 40 years experience shooting weddings under his belt, my other half Mark was the obvious choice to cover the wedding as a wedding present for the happy couple. There is life after breast cancer ladies.. put one foot in front of the other each day and you will get back to a normal and happy life.

Cathy is proof of this!

On the way to a wedding of someone special

A quick note from the Virgin Lounge at Brisbane airport as I wait for my flight to Melbourne. Tomorrow I have meetings with the good folks from Amoena. But instead of coming home tomorrow night, I am staying over for my cousin's wedding.

A very special wedding as 12 years ago Cathy was diagnosed with breast cancer. Following surgery and all the usual treatments she is a fighting fit mother of two beautiful young ladies. And tomorrow she ties the knot with a  really nice bloke. I wish them much happiness and a long happy and healthy life together.

I persuaded Mark the wedding pro photographer to come out of retirement and cover the day for them. He has been only to happy to oblige .

Got to go... They 're calling my flight
