A Traditional Romantic Wedding in Masterton

Walking hand in hand.jpg

Amazing imagery is what happens when a bride takes the time to pay attention to the small details, to ensure her day is exactly how her and her fiance want it. That is exactly what happened at Sophie and Josh’s classic wedding in Masterton, filled to the brim with sweet and emotional moments shared with friends and family.

This incredibly romantic day was held at St Patrick’s Church in Masterton followed by a beautiful reception at The Landing.

Sophie’s gown; the Bonny 6700 was perfect for this occasion, the soft tulle, jewelled belt and capelets fit the romantic theme beautifully. “I loved The off the shoulder straps with the sweetheart neckline. It felt romantic.”

Another amazing wedding album, all captured and created by the genius behind the lens; Nicole Troost!

…I really wanted sea holly for my bouquet, so we collected it over the months leading up to it and dried it. On the day we sprayed it blue and silver. 

One of my favourite moments was the readings at our ceremony, one of which Josh's sister wrote herself which was very moving.

We wanted a day we could share with our whanau and friends that reflected us as a couple. A day that acknowledged both sides of our families and those who were no longer with us. Josh's mother passed away six months before our wedding and my father passed away 5 years ago. We were married in the same church my parents and grandparents were married in. So our parents each lit a candle representing our families and we used their flames to light our unity candle.
