Three Years – Leather

Each year for our wedding anniversary, we try to incorporate the traditional anniversary gifts into a creative photoshoot. In our first year of marriage, we had a paper dress and vest. In our second year, we ventured to the magic cave for some cotton candy and matched it with a cotton ball bowtie and dress.

This year, for our third year anniversary, we sourced some scrap leather from Sydney’s Paddy Markets and created a leather bowtie and hairbow.

Travelling to the Adelaide Hills for a couple of nights, we stayed at the picturesque Apple Tree Cottage.

Though we only stayed in the backyard for this particular shoot, you can catch a glimpse of cottage’s vast grounds. Beyond the rustic wooden fence lies a herd of wandering cows, a rowboat patiently parked by the edge of a peaceful lake, and a number of paths through hills, fruit groves, and other beautiful sights.

We choose to wear a few special items. For Jerry, his wedding suspenders and for Kristen, her mother’s old dress.

It was awesome to breathe in the atmosphere of nature here and to feel the land beneath our bare feet. We saw the marks of the Creator’s majesty and of His eternity – His creation is more incredible than anything we could make.

So, here’s to three years with each other and to Jesus – our foundation, our root, our Christ and Creator.
