Jeremy and Julie got married last Saturday at Tui Bay, Te Anau. Surrounded by their children, their families and friends. Julie you looked so beautiful my friend and Jeremy you scrubbed up pretty smart too!
This is a hard blog post to write, because I didn't take these photographs. I had to spend the day in bed, defeated by tonsillitis and feeling rather sorry for myself. Among one of the worst fears of a wedding photographer is the inability to show up for your job! My wonderful friend and peer, Rochelle Dillon, covered me for the day bringing her talent and awesome personality to the party. And Matt got to shoot for the first time ever without me. But most importantly Jeremy and Julie's day was wedding perfection!
Looking at these photographs I feel joy. Jeremy & Julie's wedding day was filled with happiness, love and so many sweet, tender moments. The colours were magnificent and their first dance as husband and wife looked EPIC! Here's some highlights from their day...
One last quiet moment before the day really begins...
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Anderson!!!
Those three little faces in the front! 😂
The Distinction Lakefront looked incredible with full silks and fairy lights!
Congratulations Jeremy and Julie! What a beautiful first day of marriage! I only wish I had been there to celebrate with you both & your families.
I knew when I had to make that phone call that I was going to cause you stress Julie, you guys had wanted us right from the start & having to admit I wasn't going to be able to bring my A-game was by far the hardest thing I've had to do as a wedding photographer. I know we were both at each end of the phone trying to hold it together! But I'm so grateful for your understanding and your trust in me that I wouldn't let it change the wonderful photography experience you deserved.
These photographs bring me so much joy - your day looked incredible! Wishing you a marriage filled with happiness & I cannot wait for your wedding album! xx
