Stephen + Naomi

December 3rd, 2014

Why are there so many songs that talk about love and weather?  Songs like Stormy Weather, Here Comes the Sun, the ever-classic November Rain and a personal favourite, It’s Raining Men, entwine age old themes of love and weather.  I’m sure this list could go on and on.  When I think about it, I guess songwriters use the weather as a metaphor for life – if your love can withstand all those forces of nature, the sun, the rain, the hail and wind – it is a true love, a lasting and strong love.  For Stephen and Naomi, who experienced sun, rain, hail and wind on their wedding day, it can only mean that their love is SUPER strong.  I had such a hard time choosing the photographs for this post because their love and that weather made an amazing combination.  Held at the spectacular Spicers Peak Lodge, Stephen and Naomi gathered their nearest and dearest to witness their marriage.  It was a truly special day – and to only add to the magic, there were a couple of cow photo bombers.  His name was Hamish.

Stephen’s dapper suit was by Herringbone and his shirt and bowtie was by those gents at The Cloakroom.

Naomi’s beautiful outfit was a simple silk shirt and flowing skirt from the master Johanna Johnson.  Give me a dress with pockets and I’m a happy girl!  Too cool.

All the flowers (and there were flowers, flowers everywhere) were done by the absolutely fabulous Green and Bloom. Oh my goodness – simply stunning!

The amazing celebrant, Nicole Evans, managed to cope with the changing weather spectacularly.  As the heavens opened up, and the guests ran for cover, Spicers’ staff were handing out umbrellas and guiding guests inside.  Professional, exceptional service.

See what I mean about the flowers?  Ah-Maze-Ing!  Tables were hired from Hodgepodge Hire and the Chairs were from AVIdeas.  So beautiful!

They had a caricature artist at the reception – what a brilliant idea!
