I think it speaks volumes of a couple’s character when they clearly have such a strong community surrounding them on their wedding day. Everyone, family and friends, seemed connected in some way, especially with everyone happily chipping in to make sure the kids were well looked after. Their family had contributed to every part of the day, from the epic ceremony location being Will’s Uncle’s house, to numerous speeches recorded and sent from Scotland, and Raegen even having a dahlia grown in her Mum’s garden in her bouquet. It was pretty special!
Will and Raegen, thank you so much for allowing me the honour of being your photographer. Thank you for squeezing your wedding in so soon before I go on maternity leave so that I could be there to celebrate you both; it truly means so much to me the lengths you went to to have me there! I know that your marriage will be one that your girls will look up to and learn from throughout their lives. You make a great team and I can’t wait to see what adventures you get up to as husband and wife in the years to come! Enjoy this first little look back on your day!
Next up, the sweetest reaction of Will seeing his bride for the first time at their first look! We snuck in a few portraits before their ceremony, and even a first look with Raegen’s Grandad too. Such special moments to have forever!
Such a great day that I’d gladly re-live over and over! I honestly could have taken photos of them all day long, but had to rein it in to let them have time with their guests haha, dream day!
