Jody & Andrew

Jody & Andrew wanted a modern taken on a midsummer’s night dream wedding. They wanted their guests to experience the same sense of wonder and magic as Jody had when she’d seen a production of A Midsummers Night Dream in the gardens many years before. A day of magic was filled with incredible bouquets of greenery, a beautiful garden ceremony and of course – plenty of dancing! The couple chose Captured By Pavel  to capture their day.

On how they met, Jody tells, “We met through mutual friends, we were just friends but started dating after I returned from living overseas.”
