Jessica & Luke’s Wedding

so i told you last week that my pals Jessica & Luke were getting married over the weekend. i was a bridesmaid along with Jessica’s twin sister Debra, and also one of the many unofficial official photographers. i’m really happy with how these photos came out – and even happier that i could capture some special moments from the day.

i have been witnessing the planning of this wedding from the day that Jessica and Luke got engaged. it was always going to be an intimate affair, with minimum fuss and a focus on everyone just enjoying themselves. they got married in the church Jessica and her family have attended since she was a kid, and had their reception down the road at their restaurant Nook. there were burgers and beer (my favourite), fries and mayonnaise to dip them in (my second favourite) and even devilled eggs (probably my all-time favourite).

i don’t have any photos from the actual ceremony, and my picture taking habits got increasingly worse the more we ate, drank and chatted – which is exactly what this wedding was all about. good times & celebrating with our favourite people.

the flowers were done by Hermien of Flowers in the Foyer – the funnest wedding flowers i have ever seen.

    Wow! Beautiful photos. Such a colourful and unique wedding – but still crisp and light, which I like.
    Your dress is very pretty too :) It’s pretty much perfect.
    I would love to be someone’s unofficial wedding photographer… too much pressure to get it right otherwise lol.

    What a beautiful wedding! I love all the little details–the paper cranes, flowers in bottles, quirky illustration of the couple, etc. And your dress is just perfect; I’m digging the color and subtle little polka dots.

    These photos are beautiful; so glad to see them as they are without a “treatment” added to them. You found (and captured) gorgeous light!

    What a beautiful celebration – those flowers are amazing! The bride looks gorgeous, very elegant and I love your bridesmaids’ dresses too. This is so what I’m wanting for mine next year. Congrats Jess & Luke!

    What a beautiful wedding! love the flower arrangements.

    is that you in the polka-dotted dress? looks like you … if so, awesome dress, you look quite lovely. This is how I would want my wedding to look – no matching bridesmaids, or over-the-top-ness (yes, I just made that up). Gorgeous snaps Diana.

    • Miss Moss Tuesday 4 October, 2011 at 3:00 pm #

      yep, that’s me! thanks Hila ;)

  24. Mariella Tuesday 4 October, 2011 at 6:20 pm #

    Beautiful pictures! I always thought you need a special focus to take shots on such a hectic day like a good’s friend’s wedding, but you were able to capture the loveliest details, very sweet!

    these pictures are stunning! I particularly liked the jumping on the bed one. I’m almost 26 and I still jump on every hotel bed I come across. It’s a must!

    there was such a calm and peace that came over me while i looked at these photos! the simple beauty and joy of life was expressed in everything. a perfect day leading to a perfectly happy life. thanks for sharing.

    Amazing flowers… would expect no less from the people behind Nook! I miss their steak sandwiches and general adorableness.

  34. Anna Fourie Thursday 20 October, 2011 at 9:54 am #

    Wow. Such beautiful pictures for such a soft wedding. Makes me want to divorce my husband just to marry him again. Sigh.

  35. Lina Monday 31 October, 2011 at 5:25 am #

    Stumbled upon your site. Your pictures are lovely! May I ask where your dress is from? It is perfection!

    • Miss Moss Thursday 3 November, 2011 at 8:33 am #

      hey Lina – I bought the dress from Ruche earlier this year. I also have it in navy, haha!

    memorable and imprinted in deeply in the mind and the heart forever…thanks for sharing those moments with us in conversation, Nox

    I’ve been reading your blog for a while now, but it’s the first time I see this beautiful post! Would you happen to know the label of the dress the other bridesmaid wore?

    • Miss Moss Monday 23 January, 2012 at 10:18 pm #

      it was from ASOS – Jessica actually bought it to wear as her wedding dress originally, then she found the one that she eventually ended up wearing and Debra (her twin) wore the lace number :)
