If anyone read Pip and Rob’s engagement shoot… you’ll know why I’ve started this blog post with the photo below. …
Where do I even begin with this incredibly special day?
Out in natural NZ, where the rolling hills are endless and the mountains are spectacularly prominent, a wedding will take place in the beautiful spot of Fairlie. And on one of these rolling hills lives a Mum and Dad who have 4 daughters, a son and one truly epic view. It is here that one of their daughters will get married. Wedding days are special anyway, but for a Dad who almost didn’t have the chance to walk his daughter down the aisle… this day was way more special than the heart can even begin to handle.
I walked into the O’Connell home, the destination where the ceremony would take place. And there sat a radiant Pip, hair all beautifully down and the final touches of make up being applied. Completely 100% ecstatic that her day was here. She could have walked down the aisle in the black pants and t-shirt she was wearing and she still would have wowed Rob 100%. Her beauty was shining through in full force.
She introduced me to absolutely everyone with the brightest, chirpiest tone in her voice. She had a bounce in her stride and a twinkle in eye, as she showed me the note her future husband had left her with a wee present. I’d say she was counting down the seconds in her head until she married the love of her life.
The kiss means they’re MARRIED… lets go onto Part 2 to celebrate… Follow me through for sooo much more goodness!
