“If I could sum up Anna in one word it would be AWESOME! Our wedding stylist Clairelouisecreates recommended Anna as a super fun, brilliant and talented lady. She was absolutely right on all aspects!! From the moment we met her we knew Anna was brilliant, she made James liking having his picture done, which was amazing in itself. Anna captured our day perfectly the images were fantastic, I welled up when I saw them as it was like reliving our day again. If you want a super talented,fun photographer who takes awesome pictures; Anna is the one for you.” Hannah + James
Every bride wears Spanx. Not many want people to know. But Hannah was hilariously proud and amused by them. The “father of the bride seeing bride in her dress for the first time” photo looks like this:
The wedding was styled and planned by my awesome friend and wedding beast Claire who runs Claire Louise Creates. It was the first wedding we’ve done together and she’s a force to be reckoned with. Along with her funky clipboard she had the wedding running like clockwork and made sure no one had to do or worry about anything. Oh and she made the venue look like a rainbow! It was glorious. It did rain though. But all the rainbow colours brightened up the day, plus Hannah and James are awesome so the rain was no thang.
How cute is this flower girl? Like beyond ridiculously cute.
I love this photo so much. Nervous best man checking the rings are in his pockets for the 347th time. Amused groomsman #1. Terrified groomsman #2 in the background concentrating so hard on playing the right music. Amused groom with a cheeky grin. Videographer trying to hide from my shot. Love it.
The flowergirl took this dinosaur everywhere with her. It had feet that made it look like it was walking.
When I was driving to the venue in the morning I went past some pine and fern woods that were like something out of Jurassic Park, and the rain made them even more beautiful. I imagined us doing photos in there but dismissed it because we’d have to drive and take time out to do it. I forgot that I’d met Hannah and James and knew that they were super cool and would be entirely up for it! I mentioned it during prep and Hannah slung their Hunter wellies in my boot!
Oh how I wish I’d cleared the crap out of my car before the wedding…
Hannah wanted a lot more swears at the wedding (she’s filthy and I love it), so Claire compromised with stars 😉
The dinosaur is old news. This moment happened mid speeches and I couldn’t miss it, it was beautiful. Real life.
After raining all day we were treated to a hell of a sunset.
I told Hannah to eat the cheese and the chocolate together. She said it was really nice actually before making this face.
Warning: I blind people with my flash on the dancefloor.
Drunk people and fire don’t mix. The girl in the middle felt the same fear.
What did James draw Hannah? I need to know!!
