Joe and Estella opted to have a low key beach wedding. Estella wanted a bit of a kiwiana experience, having already officially tied the knot with Joe in China. Photos were taken before the ceremony however afterwards Estella decided to hike up the Mount  in her wedding dress for more!!!! I got a bit of a sweat on with all my camera gear but I am glad we did it!

Style, Edge and Bite mixed with a little softness and femininity proved to be a winning concoction for these two on their glamorous wedding day. The lads rocked a bit of attitude while the chicks simply glowed in their fairytale frocks. Ataahua Garden Venue provided some stunning summer backdrops. Aimee and Winni didn’t take themselves too seriously though, hardly five minutes would pass without a good laugh. So in love and perfectly paired….well apart from Aimee’s other love of Fleetwood Mac!!!

It absolutely poured for Celine and Andy but that didn’t phase them one bit. Photos commenced prior to the ceremony in the Wylie’s characterful shed while the rain pelted. Once it eased the sky provided a stormy backdrop for outdoor photos. Hereford House proved they could handle anything moving the marquee at the last minute to handle the weather better. Successful day all round….pfft what rain?!!

Megs kept it in the family and chose to get ready with her friends and two sisters at her parents Tauriko property. Sisterly banter filled the morning. The knot was officially tied at Tauranga Baptist Church and from there we headed out for some fun photos……apart from the manky smelling seaweed Fergusson Park was a pretty sweet spot! The reception commenced at Mills Reef Winery.

Savannah and Ben opted for a relaxed wedding at Fountain Gardens. Rain held off for most of the day, and despite some drizzle after the ceremony we got some sun soaked shots in the late afternoon down at Plummers Point.
