Roslen & Iona {Married} Part 1

Winter Weddings. It’s hit n miss really. The 2 weeks leading up to Roslen and Iona’s June Wedding, was nothing but rain.
Rain, rain, rain. And then some more rain on top of that!!!
‘Get it out of your system, squeeze those clouds dry’ I was thinking to myself. Keeeep raining. … So come June 29th. We didn’t get a miss. No, we got an absolute BULLSEYE of a day. Because winter sunshine… is to dieeeee for. And when you add in a beautiful couple with hearts of gold and pure love and joy for each other. …You’ve got the whole package going on.

This is a family wedding for us. We’ve known Rozzie for years. I’ve been photographing her for various reasons since the beginning of my career. She helped model for me for such shoots like THIS … so now it’s just nice that this is now her real wedding day, her real wedding dress. And she is in fact a real bride. It’s a special day indeed.

I walked into a lounge where we often have dinner with our friends. And today, it was absolutely glowing with sunshine and beautiful bridesmaids.

These bridesmaid dresses, along with Rozzie’s beautiful dress was made at the hand of my very talented Mother In-Law. She’s done another STELLA job and the girls.. as you will soon see… look AMAZING.

Rozzie has excitement streaming through her veins. There is no hiding excitement from this girls face. She is full of joy.

And only a few streets down, Doug is hanging out with 6 guys who make him look like a midget. He was having fun. And Iona is chilled as can be at the fresh 9.30am it is.
