When Laura & Matt first asked me to photograph their Cook islands wedding I couldn’t have been more thrilled, I’ve known them both since high school so it was so lovely to be able to document the wedding of two people I’ve known for over a decade. It was such a pleasure to travel to the beautiful island of Rarotonga to spend a few days with these guys and their closest family and friends.
I was lucky enough to spend a whole day with the wedding party the day before the big event and included snorkelling (Granted in torrential downpour), cocktail drinking and my favourite thing – Eating!. I think one of the best things about escaping to a beautiful island to have your wedding is that it instantly puts everyone in a relaxed mood and it’s impossible to be stressed!
Laura was an absolute vision as you can see from the images, and without a doubt my favourite moment was watching Matts face overcome with happiness as she came down the aisle. A beautiful ceremony on the beach was followed by canapes before I snuck the bridal party away to some pretty amazing scenery for portraits.
