Kat & Francky // Photographed by Melissa Mills

Kat and Francky celebrated their love in a gorgeously rustic, rural woodshed wedding in Hawkes Bay- an occasion filled with family, friends, tradition and heartfelt details. Incorporating the grooms’ Goan heritage into their day was so important to the couple, who, with the help of stylist Lucy Chase and florist Lushka, created a beautiful blend of nature-inspired stylistic elements and cultural traditions.

Capturing the day was photographer Melissa Mills, who made sure to record those special moments in a beautiful album of images for Kat and Francky to treasure forever. We caught up with the couple to hear more about their love story and wedding day below.
