Are we there yet?

Remember how painful it was, sitting in the car not knowing when you could escape the confined space of the back seat, stop for an ice cream or just be anywhere else other than in non air-conditioned discomfort!

As a child, some of those summer road trips seemed to never end. Who’d have thought that as an adult you’d ever have to wait so long again.

Though you still have so much to do and organise, you probably wish you could have your wedding tomorrow? Say ‘I do’, throw a party, play with friends and eat as much ice cream as you want!

However, as we grow older, we learn that it’s often the anticipation of what’s to come which is the sweetest part of the journey.

Be sure to saviour all that’s involved in the lead up to your wedding and relish the choices you get to make which help you share this day with your closest family and friends. The seemingly long time it takes you to get there will prove insignificant to all the memories you will end up having forever.

Nevertheless, you’re never too old to play eye-spie or pinch your younger brother as a distraction when on your next family trip!


Hello, my name is Christopher Hayles. I am a Sydney based wedding photographer who loves being in the right place at the right time. My style is candid and unobtrusive leaving you with images that are simple, personal and memorable. If you would prefer to enjoy the company of family & friends, rather than be a prop at a fashion shoot on your wedding day; it feels like my next collaboration could be with you.
