David and I are complete opposites and our hobbies are worlds apart. He is spontaneous and I like things to be planned out; he likes to get his hands dirty, whereas I love to make things beautiful as a graphic designer. But despite our differences we are both adventurers and our wedding was full of adventure from start to finish.
Daniel and I have known each other for many years but we reconnected over a year ago and fell in love almost instantly. We were engaged and married within six months – we just knew. Daniel does not give his heart in pieces, so from day one I knew I had his whole heart.
We met in 2008 in St. Augustine, Florida when we were introduced by a mutual friend and we started darting shortly afterwards. I’m a wedding photographer and have a passion for all things literature and history, but of course my true passion is our family.
Crane Brothers is an iconic brand. Can you tell us about your history?
I grew up with the punk, New Romantic movement, looking at the back of a record or an old copy of The Face and going, how do I get that look? It didn’t exist here, so I grew up finding things in op shops and remodelling them. I was a menswear buyer at Zambesi for five years, which introduced me to luxury brands like Helmut Lang, Martin Margiela and Dries Van Noten, who were doing high fashion, but everything came from tailoring. I became fixated on that craft and process.
