Those dishes are fine
They’re not going nowhere
So keep your hands soft
For high-fives and shakes

The song “Bread” by Clem Snide is one of my favourites and as soon as I met Joost and Kirsty, the song started playing in my head. Kirsty works from home as a graphic designer  and I know all about working with your children around your feet all day. It’s very rewarding, but also…hard at times. The song just seemed fitting somehow.

They live in Berry in NSW where Joost is the local baker. He specialises in organic sourdough and takes his craft very seriously; a man after my own heart. For the wedding, Kirsty designed everything from invites to the decorations and Joost made the special “love bread” that guests got to take home at the end of the night. The ceremony was held under an old cedar tree and the reception took place in what used to be a strawberry field on the family property and because of that, Kirsty wore a hair piece with strawberries and wild flowers.

It was just one of those days. I found myself walking around smiling, feeling part of something epic and at the same time so simple.

Because you smell like bread
And now the pillow does too
Has everyone left?
Were they even here?

Today’s wedding is also featured on Kirsty’s favourite wedding blog – 100 layer cake. Head over there for even more details.

These photos are breath taking. where was this lovely wedding held? And have you photographed any weddings with large trees like this in Oregon? A beautiful tree like that is exactly what we're looking for.

Excellent. The one with the bride alone on the Horizon really hit me as a great photo, and thats over and above the others. I do like how the small things are captured, and the detail.

Most weddings take years of planning yet the day can fly by and feel like it’s over in a heartbeat. That’s why it’s so important to capture those moments and not just the moments you expected, but the ones that appeared by magic.

Fruktansvärt bra bilder, Jonas. Så mänskliga, så varma, så levande och vackra! Sitter med min chilenska sambo och blivande kollega i bröllopsfotografiet Doris i Playa del Carmen i Mexico och låter mig - oss - bara värmas. :-)
