Tanya & Rhys Australian themed wedding - Christchurch Harbour Hotel

Wednesday, November 30, 2016

"My new husband and I would like to say a massive thank you to Nisha for capturing our day so beautifully. You put us at ease from the beginning and made us feel very relaxed. I would absolutely recommend Nisha as a photographer for any event, and the photos are gorgeous! Thank you again Nisha - Tanya & Rhys Hunter-Robinson xx"

I'm so happy to have documented Tanya & Rhys' wedding last month at the seaside hotel, Christchurch Harbour Hotel in Dorset. Certainly one of my favourites this autumn as they were just incredibly lovely, warm and welcoming to everyone; it just all felt amazing. 

I love stories of how couples meet and the tale of Tanya & Rhys is delightful! Tanya went travelling to Australia in 2013 and went to a little outback town to work in a local supermarket. She asked the grocery boy for help putting things away, that's when she met Rhys! They started dating and 8 weeks later Tanya left to continue her travels... but after 14 months apart, Rhys came over to the UK for 2 years and popped the question! Being in a long-distance relationship myself, I really empathised with their story and it's amazing how love prevails!

A few highlights from the day was capturing goofy and romantic portraits out on the decking by the sea despite the rainy English weather. Witnessing Tanya sister overcome with emotion after seeing her best friend exchange vows. This wedding had a particularly poignant feel as she was going to start a new life in Australia in January so this wedding marked a big new chapter. Also Tanya's little cousin vocalising whether the ceremony is over yet right in the middle of the vows was so adorable, all the guest erupted in laughter.

I am flabbergasted that Tanya & Rhys organised this beautiful wedding in only two and half months and I think it's safe to say, myself and all the wedding vendors involved are fortunate to be able to make their wedding a super special one. 

Thank you so much! Many congratulations guys! x
