Oh where do I start?!
You may remember Colene & Jason from their engagement shoot last year – those biscuits, smiles and SHOES! Excitement for their March wedding had been building ever since then and their big day arrived so quickly – the emails and plans, hearing about all the details coming together… I was SO excited when I arrived at Colene’s house the morning of the wedding and I had good reason to be – their day was simply stunning.
Colene & Jason’s ceremony was at Monquhitter Parish Church in Colene’s home town, Cuminestown. The weather forecast had been chopping and changing all week so I was delighted when those good ol’ clouds gathered to add some moody skies above the church, but held off with the rain. Yay! By the time we arrived at their reception venue (Meldrum House Hotel – which I LOVE, by the way), the sun was out!
The day had so many highlights, I don’t know if I can fit them all in one blog post… Be it the Chevrolet Belair car, Colene’s handmade vintage brooch bouquet, her Vivienne Westwood shoes, the little touches incorporating New Zealand (Jason’s from Wellington) here and there, the surprise haka, the handmade favours, their lovely, LOVELY family and friends – I felt right at home!
Sorry for all the caps, but I wish I could shout about this wedding all day long! See below for a list and links to their suppliers.
Congratulations guys! It. Was. Wonderful. xx
