Hinterland Weddings

Blog entryOne of the first new terms I learned in Nic & Jon’s wedding was the word, ‘Chuppah’. This is the Jewish term for the wedding canopy under which the couple get married. In this case, the chuppah was made from the wedding dresses of both Nic & Jon’s mothers. This was the first Jewish wedding I have ever photographed and so I was introduced to all sorts of wonderful new rituals and terms, including the circular ‘hora’ dance at the beginning of the reception. One tradition, that I think we have all seen (in the movies!) is the crushing of the glass by the foot of the groom at the ceremony. It is symbolic as an expression of sadness at the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem and in jest, some explain that this is the last time the groom gets to “put his foot down.” It was a wonderful day filled with emotions, family, friends set in the stunning backdrop of Federal in the heart of the Byron Bay Hinterland. Mazel tov!
