Holly Hedge Estate Wedding PhotosThe Couple

Some people wait a lifetime to meet the person they will marry one day but for Ashley and Johnny, this day came very early in their lives. They met when they were just 17 and 18 and have been embarking on life’s adventures ever since. Their travels began in 2012 and they have been fortunate enough to visit faraway places, like Iceland and New Zealand, and exotic ones, like Thailand and Fiji. It was during one of their many trips that Johnny proposed to Ashley – on the stairs of the Sydney Opera House at sunset, no less! What a dream!! After a four year engagement, their wedding day finally arrived last week.

The Wedding Day

Jay and I had been looking forward to Ashley and Johnny’s wedding day for quite some time, especially because we had the honor of documenting Johnny’s sister’s wedding almost two years ago and were excited to see lots of familiar faces. As soon as we arrived on the grounds of the 18th century Holly Hedge Estate, we knew it was the perfect location for Ashley and Johnny to say their I Do‘s. The rustic elegance of the estate made for the ideal setting for their wedding. The decor was organic and full of greenery with subtle shades of blush and champagne. Throughout the day we discovered travel quotes and hints of the places where Ashley and Johnny have traveled together. Weddings like this one are such a pleasure to be a part of because they are so personalized and truly unique. My favorite details, though, were the sentimental ones that tugged at my heart strings: Johnny wore his late uncle’s gold pocket watch while Ashley wore her late grandmother’s sapphire ring, and both of them wrote their own vows. Not to mention that Johnny’s aunt officiated the ceremony. Needless to say, there were many tears shed throughout the day, and we were honored to be able to capture this beautiful day for them to remember it. It’s on days like these that we are reminded of why we do what we do, and we are so thankful to have the opportunity to work with couples like Ashley and Johnny as well as their friends and families. Ashley and Johnny, congratulations on this new adventure you are embarking on! May it be filled with joy, love, and lots of stamps in your passports! Have a safe trip to South Africa and enjoy that amazing African Safari!!
