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.


  1. Congratulations to them! I love a simple and beautiful wedding that keeps the most important things up front. A million years of wedded bliss to come! :)

    your photos are *BEAUTIFUL*
    and the flower arrangements are heavenly!
    there’s nothing quite like a special friend’s wedding and the ensuing celebration of love, happiness, dreams, hopes, friends, family and all the good things in life *beam*

  3. 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.

  4. You are such a talented photographer! Beautiful! and I love the flowers too – so natural and unexpected but also so playful. Stunning event all around!

  7. Small, pretty, perfect! Love everything about the wedding, especially those dresses and the flowers! You photos are really stunning too – sssho, should have asked you to be our unofficial official wedding photographer:)

  8. These are really really good! So light and beautiful – great atmosphere. I love her hair and that little chain on the back of her dress!

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

  10. Gorgeous photos, this wedding is absolutely stunning. I’m in love with the flowers, they look like they were just picked from a field.

  12. 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!

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

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

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

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

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

  24. 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?

    • 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 :)
