As a perfect way to kick off 2015, I spent my first wedding of the year with these two wonderful people – Briony + James.
When Briony first asked me if I’d be her wedding photographer for her day in Nelson, I was SO excited. After having spent a bit of time exploring Nelson, getting lost in all the pretty places the city has on offer… I’d been itching for the opportunity to shoot a wedding there.
And this day turned out to be even more epic than I could have possibly imagined! Their chosen venue of Beacon Hill Estate, with the beautiful barn which they had spent decorating the day before… the great yarns and laughs shared with their families and friends… and don’t even get me started on the crazy-awesome-ness that was their dance floor!
Briony is originally from England, and her family had travelled all the way to our little corner of the world to spend this day with her.
It was pretty darn cool.
And you know what else is cool? Briony here has been joining me over the past couple of years as my brilliant assistant during the wedding seasons. So it was extra special having her in front of my lens for a change, being there to capture her story.
Yep, it’s day’s like this one that make me love my job so much.
