How a Wedding Impacted an Entire Community

These wedding photos went viral last week and the result was truly beautiful. Photographer, Edwina Robertson-Cuninghame traveled to Western Queensland, Australia for the wedding of Ingrid Uebergand, who returned to her hometown of Blackall for the big day. Due to severe drought, which is affecting 80 percent of the area, Uebergand’s family had to sell the cattle off their 16,000-acre farm one week before the wedding. The financial and emotional hardship caused by the drought is tragic. After experiencing the adversity first-hand, Robertson-Cuninghame posted this photo of the wedding party on the dusty farm to Facebook, and promised to donate $3 for each share the post received to Tie Up the Black Dog, an organization that helps people in Australia that have been severely affected by drought. The post was shared thousands of times. Robertson-Cuninghame herself donated $15,000 to the organization and helped to raise thousands more. It’s just a beautiful thing to see a wedding and its vendors impact a community in such a significant way. This is social media at its finest.
