To say Brad and Naomi were relaxed about their day would be an understatement. Naomi’s uncle told me she  liked things done well, but without any fuss and that perfectly described her approach to the day…. “Ruth we only need 100 photos ” “Oh don’t bring your second shooter, its not like we are going …

They are also Photographers (check out their work here)with a busy few months ahead and wanted to avoid their own Wedding being overshadowed by the madness of peak Wedding season.  As they spend so much of …
