Joel and Rachel – New Zealand Love


Today the passionate photographer James Broadbent of Chasewild shares his pictures of a very moving and lovingly planned wedding with us, the wedding of Joel and Rachel from New Zealand.

They are a very nature-loving couple and so it was no surprise they wanted to bring as much nature as possible inside when they decided to get married in winter.

Unbelievable family ties and friends for life like you hardly find them made it possible to celebrate Joel and Rachel´s dream wedding even on a cold winter´s day.

For months they crafted, sewed and prepared everything to gift their beloved bridal couple an unforgettable day. We can only assume how much creativity, time and dedication everyone invested in these preparations.

A common breakfast with friends, getting ready among the bridesmaids and a moving ceremony followed by a wonderful jamboree – this day could not have been more perfect.

Words cannot describe how detailed and amazing the result was. But the bright eyes of Joel and Rachel speak volumes. Chasewild’s pictures paint a thousand words, so lay back and enjoy!

TIPP: James and Cameron of Chasewild are going to spend some months in Europe next summer. What a great opportunity for you to book these two fantastic photographers for your wedding! James and Cameron are looking forward to meeting you!
