I first met Lakin about 4 years ago, through my Sister at a Carole King Concert. Over the years we kept bumping into each other, worked together and became friends. Lakin is one of the funniest people around and a mad muso. I was so excited when she announced her Engagement to Mel and couldn’t wait to meet the girl who swept her off her feet. My lovely daughter Laura adores Lakin, so it was only fitting that she came along as my trusty Assistant to their “Girl Meets Girl” shoot at Wyndham Estate. We were a tad worried about the weather, and the bridge we had originally planned on using had miraculously disappeared underwater with all the rain. Plan B saw us driving into the grounds at Wyndham Estate in search of a location and as soon as we found our patch of grass, Mother Nature approved and gave us the most beautiful sunshine.
Lakin and Mel brought a guitar, some pillows and a picnic blanket, which was fantastic! We soaked up the afternoon sun, Lakin played some tunes and love was definitely in the air. Mel is the sweetest girl and I’m so happy they found each other and fell in love. Like champagne and strawberries, they are a perfect match and I will now hope, pray, beg and fight that they can be legally married.
