Well where do I start with Hannah + Dan, these two never ceased to amaze me from day one organising their beautifully styled & very well thought out day from across the ditch and pulling it off with grace – these two sure know how to plan a wedding day!
We originally met at their ceremony venue and walked through the day – literally walking down Ponsonby Road, which is what they planned to do from the start to have a bit of fun with their bridal party before ending up at their gorgeous reception venue at the Sapphire Room. When I set eyes on this venue I could definitely imagine that something pretty special was going to be set up there – picture a loft-style space with concrete walls, large windows, an open kitchen, and massive sliding doors opening into the beautiful open dining area… Amazing!
Hannah looked absolutely stunning in her dress by Carla Zampatti and on the day she said “I’ve been waiting to wear this dress for a year now” and I’m pretty sure Dan would say it was worth the wait!! Hair & Makeup was beautifully done by the talented Sophie Beddoes & the combo of violet-toned flowers, white roses & lush foliage for the girls’ flowers, boys’ buttonholes, & a stunning floral backdrop arrangement for their ceremony was put together by Blush. The beautiful pale violet bridesmaid dresses were by Alice McCall, suits by Pepper Sydney & last but certainly not least the stunning wedding invites & stationery by Coocachuu.
From start to finish it was an amazing day, filled with lots and lots of laughter and I’m sure many memories. They were surrounded by their nearest & dearest who had travelled from near and far just like Hannah + Dan themselves, coming back across the ditch to tie the knot in the same location they met – no wonder Dan was rewarded with a “hopeless romantic” trophy by his best man!
I’m always so thankful to do what I do and when a client picks me to document their big day it truly fills me with joy so thank you to Hannah + Dan for having me a part of your day, you’re such beautiful souls & it definitely shows through your wedding day your love for one another and the people closest to you.
