Sarah & Nick - Devonport, New Zealand

The sweetest couple that ever did exist. Sarah Jane & her Nicholas, who married with an intimate gathering of friends & family surrounding them by the ocean, in Devonport New Zealand. Two good eggs. It's special people like this that make my job not feel like a job at all. 

After their ceremony, I took these two down to the seaside, to the very same spot they had departed on Kayak, heading to Rangitoto island NZ, which you can see in the background three years earlier, where Nick was planning on proposing.

Unfortunately, Nick ended up having an accident and very badly hurting his leg on that trip, so the proposal ended up happening a little later on, when he eventually popped the question with a replica of the Katie Holmes’ engagement ring from her marriage to Tom Cruise.

I suggested they collect two tiny shells from this beach to help them remember the intimate moments they shared here forever. 

I’m bursting at the seams to share this very special wedding with you all.

 

"We are so glad Lilli was able to photograph our wedding. I had absolute trust in her art and her genuine presence on the day. All the guests commented how great she was, her ability to be in two places at once! Could not recommend her enough, what a gem!" - Sarah Jane
