Aliesha & Carlin

I came away from my first meeting with Aliesha & Carlin on a real buzz.....this was a wedding I really wanted to photograph & these two humans had such an amazing energy about them that I thought I might cry if they didn't pick me. Luckily they liked me too!

When I turned up to their rehearsal & the forecast was for possible rain showers, I was a little worried,  especially as Aleisha informed us that she wouldn't be turning up if it did rain. However, the following day was soooo incredibly hot & humid & the threat of rain kept us on our toes, but didn't dampen our spirits. I think there may have been quite a few sunburnt guests!


We started with a first look & ended with a battle of Kubb & disco dancing with a dog. Aliesha, Carlin & the entire bridal party had a blast & I feel blessed to have been able to share it with them (including heat exhaustion!).


Thanks for the jokes, the laughs & the tears. You guys rock!
