laura & jack's flock hill wedding

Written by Angela Penn on May 30th, 2014.      0 comments

Laura & Jack got married in the very picturesque Flock Hill Lodge and we were not disappointed as this stunning day unfolded!

I met the girls at Castle Hill where they were getting ready, and the day looked a little like this...

Laura's gorgeous dress and shoes.... eeeeee!

Yes, that's the Batman logo.  There was a bit of Batman going on today.  :)

THE most stunning view.

Jack's groomsmen were hilarious!  Quite a few photos did NOT make it onto the blog as this is a child-friendly show.  ;)

Caroline + David = love

Oh my goodness. These two are just gorgeous to shoot.  They are so in love, and just so happy - I can't wait for their wedding in Feb next year.

Lawyer (and songbird) Caroline & anaesthesiologist David are a match made in heaven.  We met in Sumner for their engagement shoot and although we'd picked a cloudy, gray day, this loved-up couple were a bright spot in all the gloominess.

Caroline keeps David on his toes... and wherever she goes, he will follow.  Or be dragged.

Caroline and David, it was my absolutely pleasure to shoot your pre-wedding photos, and I know your wedding day is going to be just as fun and just as beautiful. xxx

Where do I even BEGIN posting about this beautiful couple? I think I may as well jump right in and show you the photos ...  So many smiles editing these!

When I walked into Hannah's parent's house the first thing I saw were these gorgeous shoes - squeeee!!!!

Trying to get into the dress was the first hurdle! Luckily Hannah had 4 gorgeous bridesmaids to help.

Just stunning, Hannah.

Hannah puts some finishing touches on her mum.  Yes Vanda, you're caught on camera.  ;D

Then time for a special thank you gift from Hannah to her bridesmaids.

And just enough time for some photos with mum and dad.

Dad Alistair, walks his stunning daughter towards her husband to be.  I love how these guys are holding hands. x

These next two images are when Sam just couldn't help himself and went in for a kiss.  And why wouldn't he?

The beach is this couples' favourite place.

A must-stop-at in Sumner was the knitting container.  I'm not sure Hannah's new love for knitting will take over the surfing though.

And to Trent's Estate Vineyard.
