For the first time, I’ve photographed two weddings for the same couple, and they couldn’t be a more wonderful duo. Before you skim the next few paragraphs, I’m letting you know that the sunset photos at the end of the blog are delicious, so check them out!

And yes, that is a life-sized cutout of the man of honour, Blair. Eilish’s brother lives in Australia and wasn’t able to come home for the celebrations, but he still featured in the wedding. You’ll see him pop up in a few of the photos in this blog.

Eilish and Jono’s original wedding was thwarted by Covid last April. They decided to get the official part sorted, and had a small wedding in June 2020 with their nearest and dearest. Fast forward to January 2021 and it was party time, with a precious bump on board this time!

Wedding #2 featured a much bigger guest list, delicious food, a rocking band, and the party they always wanted.

Eilish was an absolute trooper. I don’t know many pregnant women who keep their heels on all day and are happy to run through a field at sunset. Amazing!

Venue: Eilish’s parents’ stunning home
Celebrant: Megan McKenzie
Dress: Love Me Do Bridal
Hair: Sam at Vibes Matrix Salon
Makeup: Kerry at Halcyon
Florals: Floss at Tudor House of Flowers
Catering: A Divine Dish
Cake: Aleesha Wiseman
And an absolute pleasure to shoot alongside their videographer Andrew from Weka Films.

The lads started the day with bacon, eggs, beers, and a game of pool – relaxed and super fun!

These guys were so chilled – when you’re already married, the nerves have all faded away. The result was a relaxed and hilarious time shooting their portraits before the ceremony.

It doesn’t get much more rural than this! What an entrance.

We snuck out into the most beautiful sunset and what a way to end the day. A moment to take a breath, reflect on your wedding day, and soak in the last of the sunshine.
