I am always so tickled to share weddings like Phoebe and Steve’s. Weddings where it’s all hands on deck… where everything from the food to the music is provided with love by their dear guests. Weddings that discard most of the usual traditions and yet are all the more romantic and special because of it.

Ohoka Hall, a tiny old building lined with Anzac portraits and the memories of thousands of suppers, was the home of this amazing day. It was actually out this way where I first met Phoebe, back when we were little kids dressing up and acting in kids’ drama productions. Since then her theatre career has taken off – you might recognise her from THAT BLOODY WOMAN – and her studies were also where she crossed paths with the lovely Steve.

Their wedding last weekend was an absolute joy to be a part of, and I’m so delighted to share this tiny preview of it. xx
