Mick + Ruth

Micks family and ours go way back to before we had kids and Dean thought he would be a boxing champ and Mick and Dean did some boxing training together. BUT, I first met Ruth whilst buying a pair of shoes! Little did I know I would be photographing this lovely lady’s wedding in the same year! Mick and Ruth chose “The Courthouse” at Cleveland for their wedding. [It was my first time there but it was awesome and seriously - the best Pavlova this dessert lover has EVER tasted *drool*] Mick has always scrubbed up alright, but on his wedding day - that extra gleam in his eye and joy on his face made it just a bit more special. Ruth looked sensational in her gown, with her flawless glam hair and make-up by the HS Beauty team [YAS KWEENS!] - honestly she was a vision! Ruth arrived at the ceremony with her two children, who got EVERYONE in tears as the trio walked down the aisle. The ceremony was beautifully officiated by my fav - Jakin Smith. After the ceremony, the couple headed off for photos around Cleveland point with the most beautiful and calm secret [probably not so secret] beach, and then sunset on the rocks at low tide. *sigh* The couples reception was warm and loving and full of happy speeches and laughs, and their first dance under the stars to Etta James “At Last” was beautiful. Everyone returned back inside to rip up the official dance floor [and they certainly did] before sending the couple off with well wishes. Mick and Ruth - we heart you guys! Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your day and for letting us share in your wonderful new adventure together. We wish you a lifetime of happiness, beautiful secret beaches, stunning sunsets, and dancing under the stars. So much love to you both! xx
