Growing up and becoming an adult often still feels surreal, particularly when you have people in your life that you’ve known since you were playing Marco Polo in the pool and Barbie’s on the family room floor. I have known Jess since she was 3 years old and can remember clear as day how awesome her and her sister Karlie’s Barbie collection was.
Fast forward 25 years and here we were on Jess’s wedding day. Walking into the house on the morning of the wedding I instantly felt the love in the room, there were hugs all round with Jess’s family and friends and her gorgeous niece Mackenzie was capturing everyone’s attention. I couldn’t be prouder of the beautiful, kind and strong woman Jess has become and I was honoured to be a part of her day.
The weather was perfect, the food was amazing and we danced the night away to 80s rock tunes. Everyone circled on the dance floor belting out Daryl Braithwaite’s “Horses” was a delight for the neighbours ears I am sure.
Come along the journey, enjoy the photos and take inspiration from the day that was Jessica and Ash’s wedding.

Make sure you take a moment to appreciate the day with your new husband.” Your favourite memory from the day: “Everything from the day was amazing, it was everything I dreamt of and more.”
