Junebug: What three adjectives best describe your wedding?
Josie and Phil: Relaxed, Fun and Delicious!
Junebug: What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day?
Josie and Phil: The inspiration for our wedding came from our desire to keep things simple and relaxed, in a beautiful venue which would provide delicious food and plenty of drinks. The venue itself and the passion of its owners suited our wedding style perfectly and everything else fell into place from there.
Junebug: Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding?
Josie and Phil: The best decisions we made were our choice of venue and photographer. The most memorable experience would have to be seeing all of our wonderful friends and family enjoying themselves and having fun!
Junebug: What specifically drew you to Marianne Taylor and her imagery?
Josie and Phil: Mariannes images had a quality to them which we were unable to find in any other wedding photographs we saw. Their colour, light and clarity are just beautiful and she manages to capture the whole day in great detail from start to end.
