Well, it’s taken a while but my 13 year old niece has been rattling my cage about getting Spirit House on Instagram so you can share photos and that sort of thing.

Sometimes a photographer comes along and manages to capture essence of a Spirit House wedding perfectly. That’s why we love Ruth Ryan’s photos of Jo and Cam’s wedding.
