With their laid back attitude and zest for life, Joe and Shell’s wedding at Northside Farm was a dream to photograph. Joe’s calm and collected manner, next to Shell’s vibrant energy, they are two people, different in their personalities and yet so right for one another. Beautifully put in Joes words, “We’re like Yin and Yang. We compliment each other. Our strengths and weaknesses dovetail next to one another.”
Their wedding motto was ‘life is short’, a little word play based on their last name and reflected their attitude on the day. They day centred on having fun. They never took themselves too seriously and wanted only for everyone to enjoy themselves. Their attitude trickled down the entire wedding party and the day continued to rise in energy and laughter.
Within the fun, there were also moments of deep sincerity. With tears in their eyes, they spoke their personal vows to one another. A moment so moving and emotional, it became too much for their youngest bridesmaid overcome with joy for the happy couple. The speeches were sincere and thoughtful, laced of course with a good dose of humor, and little shared glances between the two of them in the quiet moments that said so much and more.
Weddings don’t get much better than this.
