Mike & Laura married!
The start of the summer wedding season is finally here and what an amazing wedding to start it with. Mike and Laura’s wedding was perfect in every way. Daron and I don’t sleep very well the night before a wedding, our excitement and enthusiasm gets the better of us, so as usual we were up bright and early and ready to go. We began the day spending some time with the guys and what a lot of fun and laughter we had.
Mike looking very handsome indeed.
The guys really owned these pictures, they were so cool.
Loving the hot rod.
The blue waistcoats looked very nice, what a perfect match with the blue Dodge wedding car.
After having a great time with the guys we arrive at the Grand
Mecure Monaco where the girls were getting ready. Wanting
to capture every special moment of the day, Daron starts with
some very artistic shots of Laura’s amazing wedding gown.
The dress was sooooo beautiful, I love this shot.
Laura’s exquisiteness definitely made our job easy.
Beautiful gold wedding rings.
It’s such a happy time getting ready to marry the man of your dreams, the energy in the room was just great and the growing excitement was infectious. Daron and I feel so privileged to be part of these special moments.
Laura just seemed to bubble with excitement as the ceremony time got closer and closer.
Time to go to the Church on the Hill, the Holy Trinity.
The moment has finally come…
What a lovely way to start your wedding ceremony with a special hug from your mother in law.
What a vision!
More heartfelt vows, I seriously have to hold myself together at wedding ceremonies, there’s no time to get soppy when there’s a job to do. Daron always manages to sneak a little peak at me to see if he can see the odd tear, he knows I’m just a big softy after all. I’m really a romantic by heart which is why I love photographing weddings so much.
Laura and Mike just seemed to have such a magical connection.
They were so natural together, which resulted in so many
stunning wedding images.
With the formalities over the fun begins with the location shots. What an exceptional day it was with a bright blue sunny Nelson sky.
Laura is a country girl so a pickup truck, some hay and a field seemed just perfect.
Again I can’t believe how all the colours were perfectly matched. Laura couldn’t believe her eyes when she found the dresses, everything just seemed to fall into place for this entire wedding.
This just has to be my favourite picture of the day; it’s like time stood still for a moment.
Mike and Laura kept working their magic to create these enchanting fairytale images.
The look of love says it all.
Time to head to our next location. I’m really loving these cars, I was hanging out the window of our car to get this shot.
As I said before, we like to make every wedding unique, create a different look at every location.
We just love the Monaco Resort, the surroundings are so
beautiful and that deliciously golden late afternoon light
is a photographers dream, along with a few rose petals.
As I photograph the girls having fun…
Daron captures the cool guys shots.
Looking at this image, I realised why I had sore stomach muscles the next day. No, it wasn’t because I held a heavy camera all day long, it was from laughing at Ash. I must say, the guy had us in hysterics all day long. I think we should adopt him and take him to weddings with us.
Now it’s time for the reception and our day is almost over.
Mike & Laura, thank you so much for choosing Daron and I to be such a big part
of this wonderful day.
