Rachelle & Willy’s day was a treat from start to finish. When they first described their wedding, they talked how it was more about having a big party with loved ones. For the day to to be fun and relaxed, a big family-filled celebration to finish off an exciting year of milestones! We knew their day was going to be a highlight for us, especially with R&W being so easygoing and relaxed about planning the wedding. They have a brilliant outlook on life and take everything in their stride, together as a team. It’s clear to see why so many people think so highly of them.
Held at Mantells on the Water in the Westhaven Marina, we were treated to beautiful waterside views and the most perfect summer vibes. December, you’re ending this year in style with the abundance of sunshine! Their ceremony was conducted by a close friend, which always makes it all feel extra special and personal. Their wonderful families welcomed us with open arms, immediately making us feel right at home. There’s nothing better for us when people open up, let us in and allow us to capture everything as it unfolds.
From Rachelle sparkling in the most beautiful of dresses, to the wedding speech banter and a room full of Richards, to the lava-hot dancing on the dance-floor (we were warned it might be good but with exotic moves all over the place, it was off the chain!). Their day was a joy to be part of. We are so grateful we could capture such a wonderful celebration, thank you R&W for letting us into your wedding adventure! xx
