Where to start with these two! From the moment I met them in 2015 for their engagement shoot (check it out here) I was totally blown away by their open hearts & warm generosity. And this was just an introduction.
During the whole day I could see my first impression of them all those months ago was accurate. I could see it in the love they showed one another hours before they were side by side at the front of the aisle. I could see it in how genuinely they cared for those around them. And I could see it in every detail of their wedding celebration.
Rowan & Caitlin collaborated with an incredible team to create a magical and unforgettable day for their guests. My jaw dropped when I saw the reception venue transformed with draping, flowers, lights - so much love and expertise went into this event. Oh yes and there was a coffee bar. AND a gin bar. All the guests were treated to a special bottle of Meinert wine, blended by Caitlin's dad with the newlyweds in mind.
One of the most beautiful things about a wedding day is seeing the bride laugh easily, freely & loudly - this was so true of Caitlin (also, who else thinks she looks a heck of a lot like Keira Knightley!?). I loved the way Rowan kept looking at his new bride throughout the day, with a mix of adoration and protectiveness. The whole occasion was so tender and heartfelt, I may have shed a tear or two myself.
But, you're here for the photos, not to hear me gush about this dream wedding, so I'll let you get on with it...
Thank you to the ever-talented Grace Hutton for second shooting!
