100 years after the landing at Gallipoli, a beautiful Turkish girl married a very happy Australian guy.

This is a beautiful love story, starting on a very special day, Anzac Day, five years ago, and continuing with a Port Douglas wedding (which was amazing to photograph!) on the 100th year anniversary of the landing at Gallipoli.  And the even more special part?

Haley is Turkish

Chris is Australian.

It gives me goosebumps.  Anzac Day is my favourite day of the year, and this one I got to spend to with two very beautiful people, photographing them as they married.

Port Douglas Anzac Day, 2015;
