Rachel & Cole got married at the rustic little venue in the Bay of Plenty called Old Forest School.
I have known Rachel for a few years through a mutual friend & was so excited when she asked me to photograph her wedding. I knew it would be so effortless, sweet & stylish – just like herself! Rachel wore an elegant dress from one of the best bridal designers here in New Zealand – Rue de Seine. I knew from the moment she stepped into her dress that this wedding was going to be gorgeous one- even snapped up by Australia’s wicked wedding blog HELLO MAY.
Some words from RACH-
“I knew what I wanted, but didn’t know if it existed. I dreamed of a rustic, barn style venue, and loved the idea of having quite an outdoorsy wedding surrounded by trees and lots of greenery. We also wanted to get married in Tauranga as that’s where we are both from. I had looked at lots of venues online and nothing was quite right, either not what we were looking for or much more than we wanted to spend. Then I came across Old Forrest School and fell in love.My dad giving me away was a really special moment and something I will cherish forever. The whole walk up the aisle he was holding my hand keeping me calm – and trying to slow me down because I was so scared the song was going to end.”
Watching her arrive with her dad by her side was a tear jerker for sure! It felt like I was watching a movie where everything was in slow motion.
A beautiful start to a new chapter of these two best friends.
Meet Mr & Mrs Jones.
