“Rainy Day Wedding Photography – Warwick Fiji Wedding”
Last year ‘agronomist‘ Nathan and ‘primary school teacher’ Jo (Joanna) were at the Warwick on their first ever Fijian holiday, it was during that trip Nathan proposed …and a couple of months later and they were back where it all began to tie the knot.
With their families spread across Australia (Jo’s family from Perth and Nathan’s from Regional Victoria) it was a great chance for them to spend some time together and for the extended families to finally get to meet each other in a relaxed holiday environment. With both of them coming from grounded families, it wasn’t a surprise to see both sets of parents fully involved with Jo’s Mum and Dad both giving her away and Nathan’s folks waiting beside him at the isle. This is what Nathan had to say about the day “It was great enjoying the day with close family and friends and having special moments with each of them without feeling rushed. We were all running on ‘Fiji Time’!”
Despite not being able to have their ceremony on the beach because of the gloomy weather, having an indoors celebration didn’t dampen their spirits as they held fast to the old wives tale that ‘rain on your wedding day meant good luck!’
These guys are definitely Lucky in Love. Congratulations Guys x
And as luck would have it, it was from Jo and Nathan’s wedding that Faith won her first photography competition with Kama Catch Me making it a double celebration for us.
Is there any advice you’d like to give future brides in preparation for their big day:
Trust in the Wedding Planner at the resort – in only a few days they can organise the whole ceremony and reception. And even reorganise it at the last minute when the weather doesn’t cooperate! Just bring a few things over to personalise the venues.
Any special thanks or mentions you’d like to make:
We’re so grateful for our family and friends who were able to travel from Australia to celebrate the day with us. And also for all their help leading up to the day.
Thankyou to all the staff at the Warwick – especially Una (the Wedding Planner) for making us feel so welcome, paying attention to the little details and coming up with Plan B when the rain arrived! Nothing was too much trouble for them to do.
And cheers to the team at Kama Catch Me for capturing our day beautifully and making us feel so at ease.
