    Samm Blake is an Australian photographer living in New York. She loves to create pictures that tell stories. Weddings suit her perfectly, as she is fascinated with exploring the connections we have with others in our lives. She loves to document people in their most honest and vulnerable moments.
    Shooting Annabel and Matthew's wedding in Fremantle, Australia, got me thinking about fairy tales. Annabel's dress, a gorgeous, pale-blue strapless gown with plenty of layers, veered off the conventional bride-in-white track, and it perfectly suited her. 

    Rather than having a more traditional dinner reception, the couple opted for a high tea ceremony, and the details of this choice are delightful. From mismatched tea cups to finger sandwiches, petit fours, and the floral bridesmaid dresses worn by the bridal party, the setting was both sweet and elegant.
