Jessica & NathanKings College, Auckland Golf Club

Jess feels like a complete kindred spirit to me. I absolutely adore her. Her and Nathan are the perfect pair – their wedding was timeless, elegant and incredibly beautiful. Particular mention needs to be made to my girlfriend Amanda Norwood (of Amanda Norwood Design) who styled this wedding to perfection. No detail was left unturned, custom table cloths for the perfect tone, incredibly romantic flowers by Naomi from Leaf and Honey…the most incredible grazing table (at one point I remember Amanda adjusting even the macarons to perfection). Jess and Nathan’s first dance was very memorable and so beautiful. And incredible calligraphy from Australian based Galina which covered the invites, menus and the gorgeous mentions of songs that have particular meaning for the couple (Nathan is also a musician & lawyer). One of my absolute favourite celebrations of all time, and recently I photographed the new addition to their family little Ophelia. They’ve become friends of mine – amazing how that bond can form over a completely magical and intimate day.
