Feature Session - Katy and Renier


As wedding season kicked off again last week, I realised there were a few ceremonies I haven't yet shared on my blog. This first of these is Katy and Renier's beautiful Cradle Valley wedding last August.

They say you should never do business with family, but that definitely wasn't true for Katy's wedding. It was an absolute honour to photograph my cousin's special day. We'd had a long-standing joke between us that we would be bachelorettes forever - and then, within a few months of each other, had both met and started dating our future husbands!


To be surrounded by so much love and laughter on a wedding day is just magical. And to be part of it in such an intimate way is even more so.


Katy and Ren and the Bromehead and Grobler families, thank you for trusting me to capture these memories for you. A belated happy 1st anniversary!
