Florence and Evan were married on a historic family estate on the south coast of Cornwall.
The wedding was an intimate black tie affair with family and friends traveling from the States, New Zealand, Denmark, Norway… the list goes on.
I was so excited to photograph these two not just because I think I think that they are wonderful humans, but because I knew that experience of a black tie Cornish wedding would be something unlike a lot of the weddings I usually capture in New Zealand and I was not disappointed.
Everything about their day was packed with significance: from the gorgeous old home with a maze of hallways covered in Victorian style family portraits, to the foxglove bouquet that Florence gathered from the surrounding fields, right down to her beautiful dress made by her mother and the watch gifted to Evan the morning of the wedding.
All around were humbling reminders of the past, the passing beauty of the present and the hope for what is to come.
Thank you for sharing your day with me Evan and Florence.
