We don’t even know where to start with these two. The wonderful, Carisse and Mark. Oh, and their amazing woodlands wedding! It felt like something out of a fairytale. A handmade fairytale filled with love. All of the little details… the stunning invitations featuring Carisse’s own incredible illustrations, the woodlands creature masks, the sweet and simple protea bouquets, metres and metres of bunting, and even the matching hanger for Carisse’s dress. All handmade by Carisse, Mark and their wonderful families.
We played in the gorgeous autumn leaves, drove around in cute VW kombis (which just happened to match the colour theme for the day!) and had a few quiet moments in a historic homestead. It really was a wonderful day! Oh, and it’s not surprising that Carisse has won ‘Bride of the Year’ in New Zealand Weddings magazine! So crazy happy for these two! Will do a wee post about the feature soon!
We are also super excited to be shooting Carisse’s brother’s wedding at the end of the year – cannot wait to see this awesome lot again!
