I met Em and Des what seems like a lifetime ago when we were all working on a ship in the South Pacific. Back then, 14 hour shifts and not much sleep was common for all of us but these girls could always be seen wandering around the ship with a spring in their step and a friendly smile on their faces, (I think it might have been something to do with a new found love in their lives!) I was so happy and unbelievably honoured when they contacted me, around 5 years later to tell me that they were living happily in New Zealand and planning their wedding in the UK and that they would like me to capture their wedding!
Emma is from Cheshire originally and moved to NZ after meeting Des, whose family is from South Africa but settled in New Zealand. Obviously, the logistics of shooting their love story was a little different to the norm as they were only arriving in the UK just a few days before their wedding so the session was actually held just the evening before the wedding itself! These girls are so sweet and so full of fun and we couldn’t have asked for better light- it was so fantastic to wander around Em’s beautiful home town and hear all about what they’ve been up to in the last few years. We all had such a good giggle and I truly Loved capturing these two at such a happy time in their lives! I’m so excited to share their wedding images with you but I’m afraid you’re going to have to wait for that one for a week or two! In the meantime, take a peek at their Love Story session- I hope you love it as much as I enjoyed capturing it!
