Hungry Hearts Co was founded and is fed daily by two outrages individuals - a passionate duo creatively diverse in skills and uniquely similar in character.
Together, we're mad about the wild ride that love take you on, which has brought us to weddings. We understand the ups and downs within relationships, but we like to focus on the magic that exists between them. Hungry Hearts Co aims to celebrate romance, inspire intimacy and create an appreciation for your story.
We achieve this through personalised wedding vows, wedding party speeches and couples photography.
You see, when it comes to love, us humans like to savour the taste of every moment. We get whisked off our feet, fall flat on our face and float between different realms of euphoria - happy and humble in a world of our own. We work hard to seal the deal with that special someone, but it can be easy to lose sight of our number one priority with so much noise around us.
Hungry Hearts Co wants to bring the wedding culture back to it's bones - the initial spark, the adventure you've been on and the life long commitment you're entering into. While identifying how and why your soul is sizzling, we'll aim to inspire your thoughts, express your feelings and heighten your emotions with memories you can hold on to forever. Through a collaborative process, we will ensure you are both comfortable, confident and in control.

We dream about weddings from the time we are toddlers, so let's make the reality something worth drooling over.
This service begins with a short questionnaire. Take a few days to ponder your answers, before we schedule a time to chat - in person or over the phone. You can respond in detail or with one word - hearing your tone will allow us to adopt it.
Wedding days are all about romance, intimacy and vocalising our commitment to the person we love. So, your vows will compliment one another the same way your partnership does. The words and structure will be a reflection of your thoughts and feelings.
Wedding speeches are our personal way of expressing appreciation for friends and family and celebrating the commitment of our loved ones, to their loved one. The couple wants this to be special and so do you! But it's tricky to put feelings into words, right? (You're not the only one.)
We will arrange a time to chat, so we can understand what makes your relationship special and identify your message. You choose a style, then we piece together your speech - simple and EASY.
The world is spinning quickly and we have no way of slowing it down. But, we can capture your special moments so you can live them over again.
Rhys suggests the world is subjective and that life is subject to perception. Close your eyes for a second - we're inviting you to take a look through his.
Couple shoots are perfect for engagements, anniversaries or just a bit of fun. Our sessions last roughly an hour, in your preferred location. Rhys will entertain you, direct you and capture all your best bits. Photos will be professionally edited and sent back to you within a week!
