Gail and Ryan at Rockhaven Farm

Anyone who knows me will know that I have a possibly abnormal respect for any creature larger than myself (birds and parktown prawns too, but that's another story). So when Ryan mentioned he'd like to do the bridal party photos in a paddock of cows at Rockhaven Farm, I did wonder at the sense of this, but imagined a field of docile, grass-chomping cows lazily flicking their tails and blinkedly observing us - and thought it was an awesome idea.

Fast forward to the bridal party and myself in the said paddock where the docile cows were actually two bulls and came running straight towards us when we arrived. (In our minds visions of Pamplona and RAGING bulls). It must have been a hilarious sight to any observer as the bridesmaids, bride and photographer squealed in fear and all panickedly crammed into the backseat of the nearby car. Man, was I grateful for that car. Apologies to anyone I may have squashed in the mad rush.

We tentatively got out the car when we were sure that the bulls were a distance away and were being herded by a farm-worker. As I lay down in the grass to take a group shot, aware of the black bulls behind me, I was joking that they would get me first - when suddenly out of the corner of my eye I saw a black shadow rapidly approaching me, accompanied by the sounds of heavy stomping. Of course, the sensible thing to do when you think you're about to be stampeded is to curl up in the fetal position and let out a high-pitched scream, which is precisely what I did - much to my mortification as I discovered that the raging bull was actually Gail's brother-in-law sneaking up on me.

'Near-death' experiences aside, Gail and Ryan's wedding was so relaxed and stunning and it was awesome to share it with you guys. Aidan, I'll be sending you my therapist's bill shortly :-) Enough babbling for this entry - here are some images:
