Netherwood Wedding – Zara + Brett

Zara and Brett go together like freshly baked bread with butter. They are best friends and soul mates and have been together for over eight years. We first met them up at their farm in the midlands when we did their engagement shoot earlier this year. I knew from the get go that they are a special breed of human and that their wedding would be one of those memorable ones.

If you had to ask me about their big day I could tell you about the 500 birds which were strung from the Netherwood ceiling. I could mention the fact that they drove a bunch of old minis up to the venue for the bridal party to cruise in. I could tell you about the crazy antics on the dance floor or the warm speeches. I could talk about the excited energy and the happy buzz. But the thing I will remember most is the way these two smiled at each other and laughed together.

    Sometimes you see photos of a wedding and you just know — it’s hard to pinpoint; maybe it’s the way the couple look at each other; maybe it’s the perfect decor; maybe it’s the dress; maybe it’s the friends & family — ultimately I suppose it’s the synergy of all these things brought together in an immaculate tapestry that just says ‘wow’. This wedding and these people have that. Of course, all beautifully captured by your eagle eyes Jax 🙂

    (And that crown of flowers with the red gum boots is drop dead to-die-for!!)

    There is so much to love about this wedding – the fun, the joy, the genuine tenderness between the adorable bride and groom, the creative (!) dance moves of the guests, the beautiful sequence of shots with the red car, gumboots and flower crown and ultimately the quietness of the last shot of one little guest fast asleep after all the excitement of the day. A beautiful set of images, as always with that WOW factor that is your trademark, Jacki. Congratulations to all!
