Quirky Handmade Wedding

Michelle and John are architects. They are also cool and awesomely crazy. Michelle emailed me the best wedding plan pdf I’ve ever seen where not a single detail for the day was missed, from a scaffolding structure holding a balloon canopy, the hand built chapel they had designed themselves and where they exchanged their vows, to costumes for their guests to dress up in and all at the quirky Night Yard in Canterbury where once the cattle snoozed at night. It was amazing. They wanted to create a wedding where almost ever detail they had a hand in so it was uniquely personal to them and they succeeded. It was simply beautiful.

Thank you so much for being part of our scheming and capturing us and our wedding weekend so beautifully. All your enthusiasm, generosity hard work were super appreciated. We feel very lucky to have found our perfect photographer and will treasure our photos for many many years to come. Thank you.’
