Marita & John had a gorgeous garden party style wedding at Swan Lake Gardens in Cashmere. Their day was a reflection of them: casual, elegant, irreverent and hilarious. It was a gorgeous day, full of love and laughter and was a simple and beautiful way to celebrate their commitment to each other.
Everything about their day was chilled out and relaxed, but we did do some more structured shots: individual shots of the bridal party in the gardens, and bridal portraits of Marita & John on the bridge across the lake (yes there are swans at Swan Lake, and yes the “beware of the swans signs are serious… one of them steamed across the lake to attack my foot – ouch! – when I was balancing precariously on the rocks at the lake edge), as well as some fun shots with a Ford F250 that John had fallen in love with.
