Gabriella & Joseph. A Uniquely Personal Hobbiton Wedding by Tinted Photography

Tinted Wedding Photography_0027
I love a couple who are not afraid to be themselves on their wedding day. From where they say ‘I do’, to what they wear (including underneath the dress in this case!) today’s couple Gabriella & Joseph celebrated in way that was uniquely them.

Captured by the talented Ben & Sirjana from Tinted Photography (who seem to know Hobbiton inside out!), this wedding is filled with inspiration for a small and affordable wedding with a unique twist. Enjoy!

How did you meet?

We met in 2010, at a mutual friends birthday. Joseph was told to stay away from me so naturally that only made him want me more!

Tell us the one quality you love most about each other?

Joseph I love that no matter what she can make me smile, brightens each and every day with her gorgeous face and smile.

Gab I love how much we have in common. We never get bored of each other 🙂

Did you DIY? If so what did you do?

In hindsight is there anything you would have done differently?

The cake! It ended up being unnessecary as everyone filled up on desserts at the restaurant and we had so much left over.

Do you have any tips or tricks for engaged couples?

You don’t need to spend a lot to have a memorable day. Less is more.

But on that note if the bride wants something specific on her special day, let her have it, it’s not worth the drama!

What do you love most about being married?

Joseph Being able to introduce her as my wife after all these years, being able to wake up to her every morning and call her mine, forever.

Gab …well he just took my answer!

Where did you going for you honeymoon and why?

We just stayed in New Zealand as we had come from Australia and it was like a holiday for us anyway.

Photographer Tinted Photography. Being a photographer myself I was very picky with who I would allow to capture our day and after LOTS of researching I found Ben and Sirjana and fell in love with their work. They were our only choice and if they were unavailable I would have done the photos myself!
