Where do I begin with Jess & Zimri!? This couple is just so authentically in LOVE. When you spend time with these two there isn’t a moment without laughter and side jokes to one another! Not only are they a fun-loving couple, Jess & Zimri have the most laid back attitude. The best way to exemplify this is with Jess’ email reaction to the rainy forecast on their wedding day:

“We got a few clear umbrellas and my new rainboots arrive on Friday! Will I be slightly disappointed if we have to do it all inside? Yeah. Will everything still be awesome? YUP. Is venue pretty inside? Yep. Am I still getting married?  Sure am. Will there still be cake? Of course! Marrying an awesome man? F YES.”

Never have I loved a quote more.  

Another fabulous aspect of this couple is their desire to spend time celebrating with friends and family. When I sent them some sneak peeks they exclaimed that they couldn’t wait to see more… especially the dance floor shots! Most couples are keen to see the portraits but Jess and Zimri wanted to see their reception party with everyone they loved having a great time. Here are some of my favorite shots from the day! Congrats to the newlyweds!
