November 26, 2012

This was actually our very first wedding of the year. Waaaaay back in february… which quite honestly feels like two years ago. I had to double check to make sure we actually DID do this wedding in 2012. Yup, wedding season brain has kicked in and I’m officially confused daily as to what year we are in. I’ll get there. Don’t worry about me.

Ok, back to Melissa and Rhys. I fear I may go on a tangent with this one. It was just that great. There were so many things to love about this wedding but the main one being the couple. Melissa is such a sweetheart. I mean one of the sweetest of the hearts. Her love for Rhys is absolutely ridiculous. Adorable. Admirable. Absolutely positively genuine. These are the moments where you have to believe in ‘happily ever afters’.

Then there was the fact that she wanted this small intimate wedding (LOVE) on their property with a wedding dress that was anything but traditional. I absolutely fell in love with the concept of a vintage style dress… not a vintage style ‘wedding’ dress per say. But a very unique, I suit Melissa perfectly, kind of vintage dress.

Lastly there is the fact that she’s a stunning red head. Her hair couldn’t have looked more fantastic. Perhaps thats thanks to the fact that she’s a fantastic hairdresser and one we highly recommend. Should you be on the hunt – check out her website.

So so many things to love about this. My personal favourite quirky touch was the owl in the centrepiece. I saw it and I knew it had to be on that table. Not everyone agreed with me at first but he grew on them all. Sweet little owl.

Oh, and one more thing – the chicken photo – AMAZING. Possibly my favourite photo of the year for its sheer originality and “quirkiness”.

And yet again, another Jessica Zais Photography specialty. Thanks so much for these great shots Jess !

Also a big thank you to Bri Stein for her makeup artistry.

Ok, thats all. Enjoy the teaser below… and yup, you guess it, click here to see more on our website.

Thanks so much Melissa and Rhys for letting us be a part of this amazing day. You two are absolutely fantastic.

All the best,


Ps. I need a hair appointment soon. When can I get in ? 😉
