We shared a few photos from Kate and Jack’s beautiful garden wedding a few weeks ago (which you can see here if you missed it!) and it is an absolute pleasure to share some more photos from their day on the blog. Kate and Jack have just returned to their home in Perth, having been away for a few weeks for pre-wedding prep, the big day, a buddymoon in Croatia and a little honeymoon in Italy! Phew! Trying my best not to be insanely jealous that they’ve now returned to idyllic white beaches and beautiful oceans. We can only dream!
Anyway, I hadn’t actually met Kate and Jack until the wedding day but after a really nice long chat with these two over Skype, I knew that their wedding would just be totally perfect. And by perfect, I mean perfectly relaxed. Informal. They wanted to enjoy being with their family and friends, particularly for Kate having moved away from home to Perth a few years ago. I was completely moved by how wonderfully close their group of friends are. So many friends had flown over to the UK for the wedding – made a whole trip and experience out of it. It can only be said that when you’ve been through a traumatic experience together, you bond even closer, and this group treated each other like family. It was completely beautiful to witness.
And as for the wedding itself, well! Where to begin. Lots of couples opt for a DIY route but these two really put their hearts into it. And I don’t mean just putting together the bouquets and table decor (which they did and it all looked so pretty). I mean getting married at home in the back garden, where Kate’s parents got married over thirty years ago. Having Kate’s grandmother’s friend make her wedding dress, as she had done for Kate’s aunt and mother before her. Kate’s mother lovingly created their wedding cake (yes, the heat was overbearing for this lovely cake and it might’ve slipped away into happy mouths without a ‘cutting’ but Kate and Jack certainly weren’t fussed about that!).
It was such a treat to be able to photograph such a fun, happy, poignant wedding day; Kate and Jack, thank you for trusting me with your wedding!
It was such a gorgeous wedding! In every sense of the word. I love it when a couple stays true to themselves, and it really is then all about the marriage. Wishing you a lifetime of fun and happiness down under, Kate and Jack! I hope our paths will cross again. Krish x
