Laura and Simon’s Herons Farm wedding was all that I love about weddings and more! If I had to just choose one word to sum it up, it would be LOVE. Oh and fun…and happy…and beautiful…and I could go on but won’t hehe! It really was such a pleasure to capture, and felt like I was hanging out with old friends. The vibe was so easy going, and everyone was genuinely thrilled for Laura and Simon. Being able to share it with their gorgeous daughter made it even more special, and she was such a darling all day. Kids at weddings are always so entertaining to watch…I love the unpredictability of what they do and how fascinating they find the world – the family group photo where she takes a peak under Nanna’s hat and the priceless reaction cracks me up! hehe
So many of Laura and Simon’s family and friends contributed to making their wedding at Herons Farm such a gorgeous day. From spending hours and hours decorating the barn with hand made pieces, to heart felt singing during the ceremony and some spectacular dance moves at the end of the night (including imaginary skipping ropes! hehe). Oh and of course the gorgeous ‘boho meets glitter’ (hehe) styling and colour palette Laura created added to the gorgeousness too! I must confess I’m a bit of a sucker for glitter, boho flower crowns, sparkly bridesmaid dresses, cute baby Converse, men in a well cut 3 piece suit! Throw in a rustic barn, some beautiful scenery and it’s my kind of wedding pretty happy. That said, and at the risk of sounding cheesey, the personal highlight of the day for me was witnessing the mahoosive love between Laura and Simon – and that of their families and friends around them. It really was so strong and so uplifting – enjoy seeing for yourself in my favourites from their day below.
The lovely Laura said this about her experience with me…
“Choosing our wedding photographer was an easy one, we saw Annamarie’s work firsthand as she had photographed our friends wedding with absolutely stunning results. I immediately knew she was the one for us; laid back yet professional style, capturing life as it happens rather than posed traditional photographs. Our guests at our wedding thought Annamarie was our friend – which is a sign of how brilliantly she blended into our day. We were so excited to see the results too, and when the beautiful package arrived containing our images they were above and beyond what we could have hoped for. If you want stunning images with a highly experienced yet super friendly and bubbly clever lady, please choose Annamarie, you won’t be disappointed. Let’s face it, these photos are what you will look at for the rest of your life (as well as your husband and your rings) so you want to get it right (and those other things too!!!)”.
