I knew Lauren and Andy’s wedding would be magnificent as soon as I met them. Some people just give off perfect vibes, ya know what I mean?
When February 11 rolled around, I hopped in my car and drove to see Shani at Ambrosia Designer Florist. I had the very important job of transporting the bouquets out to the Catlins and I’ve never driven so carefully!
I absolutely underestimated:
- How incredible the flowers would be
- How many flowers there would be
- How good my car would smell
- How much space flowers take up
My car was packed full of them! Buckets of loose roses! They were so pretty I had to sit and look for a while so I wouldn’t get distracted as I drove.
I picked up a coffee and headed out of town. The weather in town wasn’t flash but the closer I got to River Ridge Retreat, the better it got.
The lads were having a chilled morning clay bird shooting while the girls were getting ready. Lauren is a very talented hairdresser and makeup artist and did her own makeup – so cool!
After a gorgeous ceremony we headed out in a van for bridal party photos. I’ve gotta say, this team – man, they went hard and it was awesome.
There were plenty of drinks, some singing, a blowtorch and smoke bombs.
Lauren and Andy, thanks so much for having me along to capture your special day. I had a blast and loved every minute.
