DIY Weddings and that Personal Touch
I love DIY weddings and that personal touch . With DIY weddings the couple’s hands-on creativity is on show and this shone through at Junmar and Candice’s Branell Homestead wedding. It was a perfect Spring day with a theme to match. It’s no secret that I enjoy photographing details, and so when I arrived at Branell on the morning of the big day and saw the venue being decorated my eyes lit up.
Junmar and Candice obviously love colour. It was everywhere. This is why even though the wedding had a subtle antique influence I wanted to focus on all those gorgeous hues. Sure I created some black and white and sepia toned images, but for me the colours needed to shine throughout most of the collection.
Check out the bouquets being thrown at the groom. Amazingly, those flowers held up all day even after enduring a serious beating. A massive well done to Kate Dawes Flower Designs for the most amazing flowers! I’m sure she would gasp seeing what these flowers were put through, but at least she now knows her beautiful work doesn’t just look amazing, but it’s also really durable 🙂 I’ve seen flowers come apart in a bide’s hands, so every time those bouquets were tossed around I was continually blown away with the fact they kept holding together. I’ve never spoken with Kate (not yet anyway), but I could tell just by the way the flowers were boxed and presented that she’s all about quality, service and professionalism. Be sure to check out her website.
Branell Homestead weddings are often country chic with a DIY feel, so when people invite me to photograph their events there I jump at the opportunity. I have a soft spot for a country wedding. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Kathy Brady from Branell for sending clients my way. I love the venue (that’s no secret), and I look forward to my next wedding there.
