The Cradle | Jo-Anne & Craig

29 April, 2013  |  Weddings
“This day I will marry my friend, the one I laugh with, live for, dream with and love.” 
Jo-Anne & Craig’s wedding day was something truly special! The morning when woke up, rain was pouring like it wasn’t going to stop for days, it was the coldest weekend in April. Jo-Anne e-mailed me that morning, a little nervous about all the rain and how it would influence their photos. A miracle happened when I got into the car to drive to The Cradle where their wedding took place. The rain stopped and the clouds started to lift. My heart was so relieved and it didn’t rain a single drop for the rest of the day. Even though their ceremony couldn’t be held in the forest as originally planned, it turned out to be nice and cosy indoors.  In the last few minutes of their couple shoot we had awesome yellow rays shining through the clouds!
What more could we ask for… Jo-Anne & Craig, thank you so much for trusting me to capture your day, hope you love the pics!
