It’s quite normal for my couples to start following my Instagram. This is usually around the time they reach out to me and always, I follow back. As soon as this little online ritual took place with Fin, I started regular stalking. Checking in on Fiancé Ben and Nora the cat, how the garden was doing and what beautiful homewares she had been buying. She also told me she was getting ready on the big day at The Pig hotel, so I knew we were destined to be together. It’s one of my most favourite places to be.
Our first meeting was their pre-shoot at their venue, the Tracey Estate. I’ll never forget it. Raff was 8 weeks old and I took him and my Mum. It was my first photo shoot since giving birth and I couldn’t have been more grateful for it to have been with such wonderful souls. We scoped out locations for the wedding day and chatted through the plan, as well as a whole heap of other stuff.
Their wedding day oozed their personalities. As well as the legal ceremony, they had a fabulous blessing on the top lawn. Thankfully, cold prosecco on tap (provided by the Bubble Bros) cooled everyone down and the laughs and hugs flowed. Fin and Ben had grown beautiful ferns and other plants which adorned the marquee and hand crafted so many other beautiful touches.
But above all, they are some of the loveliest people I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know.
