Elim & Jo’s wedding was an amazing one to document. There were many interesting moments and details that got us all worked up as we were lucky enough to share these with the couple – from the early and intimate tea ceremony and blessings, to the concluding surprise heartfelt song that Elim wrote for Jo.
The wedding was set at a beautiful outdoor location with massive trees setting the background. Although the sun was high up, these backdrops managed to provide shades where required. We also had an incredibly beautiful bridal party shoot in the forrest, in which we got many great shots of the couple, but even greater shots of the bridal party ;)
The speeches at the reception left many laughing, and a few in joyful tears. But the highlight would definitely go to Enoch’s (Elim’s best man) haka right after his hilarious speech. Incredible.
As the wedding came to the near conclusion, instead of a typical first dance, Elim & Jo decided to do a ‘first song’ instead. The reason behind this was that because Elis use to write Jo a song for each special occasion since they dated, so this was an amazing mash up of all those songs together performed by the couple. After the song, Elim surprised Jo with a finale – his new song for her. That definitely left many in tears.
We wish you both the best for the journey ahead. Can already tell that the house will be filled with beautiful music, loads of fun and more importantly, an immerse level of love.
