An Intimate Kiwi Wedding – Mr & Mrs Honorato
A few years ago I met Jenny when I ventured into my new local coffee shop. I distinctly remember Jenny’s welcoming and infectious smile, and her wicked sense of humour. She instantly made me feel right at home, and from then on I chose her cafe as my place to go for editing my photos.
During the New Zealand lockdown, Jenny messaged me to say she was expecting her first baby. I was absolutely delighted for her as I knew she would always make such an amazing Mum! And I was even more thrilled when she said she was planning to get married too.
Jenny was due to give birth to her little girl in July, so had planned to marry her lovely partner Fernando before they became a family of three. With both Jenny and Fernando’s family overseas, they had agreed to throw an intimate Kiwi wedding with their closest friends in Auckland. Thankfully, their planned date was able to go ahead and a few days before their big day Jenny and Fernando popped round to my house so we could go through their final details, and Jenny could choose one of my maternity dresses to wear for their celebrations.
Before we knew it, the day had arrived and I met Jenny and Fernando at their celebrant’s beautiful home in Northcote. Surrounded by their closest friends, Jenny and Fernando said their vows in the garden to the sound of beautiful Brazilian music. With words spoken from the heart, so many hugs, tears, and a lot of laughter, we celebrated the beginning of Mr & Mrs Honorato.
Here are some highlights from Jenny and Fernando’s intimate Kiwi wedding. Congratulations again guys – and thanks so much for allowing me to capture such a special time in your life!
