Emily & Josef {Married}

A few days after this wonderful wedding, we got this beautiful email from the bride’s sister and bridesmaid. Thanks so much for the lovely feedback Hannah!

Hi Heather and Doug
I just wanted to send an email to you to thank you for such a fun and amazing time with the photos. The ones you have put up so far look absolutely gorgeous, can’t wait to see the rest :)
It was lovely meeting you, having photographers so down to earth with lovely personalities – made the day much more fun with loads of laughs :)
Thanks again :)

This is the HAPPIEST wedding in the world. This is the most ENERGETIC wedding ever. This is a wedding filled to the brim with insane beauty, insane amounts of fun, and more love than I know what to do with! … I say that about a lot of weddings and I mean it with every single one… But these guys… Are just off the charts! This is Emily & Joe’s wedding day.

Beautiful British born Emily found her rugged Kiwi bloke Joe more than 7 years ago. They’ve learned so much about each other and grown together over this time and it’s so clear to everyone who meets them and all their friends and family,  just how beautifully they match. Emily has an infectious smile that dazzles everyone old and young and anyone in between. She’s sweet and caring and Joe is crazy about her. Joe loves to hunt, and use his hands like a good ol kiwi bloke… but he is just a marshmallow on the inner. Any couple that can laugh together the way that Emily and Joe do, have a seriously happy life ahead of them.

It’s almost a year to the day we did their engagement shoot… an afternoon filled with greatness too!

In the scorching heat of summer one year on, we ran, jumped, cartwheeled, skipped merrily and even attempted a pyramid… from beginning to end, their wedding day was choca block filled with beautiful, crazy, fun loving energy and laughter!

When Emily & Joe first got together many moons ago… they were taking a walk down by the river and they found this rock together. Emily didn’t even know that Joe still had the rock, and he presented this to her on their wedding day.
Whaaaat a gesture… I’m totally in love with the way Joe’s brain ticks!! So.GOOD!

Emily sister isn’t one for public speaking.. so ya know, instead of just speaking she thought she’d go one further and rap her speech.. to the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song. You legend Hannah.
