Here is the preview wedding photography for Jessica and Josh who were married yesterday at All Saints Church in Rise. The weather was a bit of a worry with the threat of flash floods but thankfully the forecasters got it wrong and we only had several rumbles of thunder, a sprinkling of rain on the arrival of the bride and a bit of a downpour during the service which only affected me whilst I was running between two doors from the front to the back of the church! The Reverend Andy Simpson was an absolute delight to be with, kept a careful eye on the heavens and delivered a service which raised a few laughs! I must give a special mention to Karen, Jessica’s mum who was everything the perfect mum should be; quietly organised, calm, caring, helpful and elegant! Be careful Jess; I may wish to steal her! The couple themselves were wonderful and enjoyed a celebratory drink on the lawn with their guests at the Dunedin Country House where they held their reception. There were lots of gasps at the stunning cake that the bride made herself. I have to say it was the most amazing cake we have ever seen! The blog is a little different today for this intimate, stylish wedding and I look forward to sharing the rest of the wedding photographs with Jessica and Josh very soon.
