Polly + Jamie // Mount Warning, Northern NSW

This day was so special that I had to keep pinching myself. A day so loved up, so full of creativity and vitality that I had to remind myself to take a step back so that I could drink it all in and capture it on camera.

It was truly wondrous.

Polly and Jamie you will be more than happy. You are a force of nature and you have an avalanche of artists and dreamers and joy bringers to count amongst your truest and dearest friends… You are blessed.

The first pic was taken by Polly and Jamies celebrant after their morning ceremony. The two of them walked down to the river at dawn and said their vows naked as the day they were born. The way Jamie always wanted…

In Pollys words:

“We were married at dawn, then all the women took part in the ancient Hebrew ritual of a ‘Mikva’… the women all washed me and then I was cleansed in the river, purified and ready for my husband… We all made flower garlands and headpieces and then we made the long walk to our men… the women sang me the whole way… It was a perfect day full of colour, family and friends…. no words can describe how awesome and love filled it was….”
