Waikato Woolshed Wedding - Theo and Sereen

After countless hours restoring an old family woolshed into a stunning rustic wedding venue, Theo and Sereen were rewarded with a truly unique spot to get married and somewhere with strong sentimental ties. I say this a lot but it couldn't be more true about these guys - seriously laid back and trusting of my vision for their photos they made my job so easy and loads of fun. After a casual first look they had a sweet little ceremony amongst some wildflowers that family members had lovingly planted especially for the occasion. I loved that Theo and Sereen bucked the aisle trend by having their guests walk around the corner to find them, the bridal party and celebrant lined up all ready to go for the ceremony. The party that followed was one of the most fun and craziest I've seen - complete with a sawdust dance floor, some caterpillar dance moves from the groom, a stage dive and countless espresso martinis.

Wedding ceremony at the Tree Church, Ohaupo - Ian and Sarah

Ian and Sarah's day was effortlessly elegant and timeless. The Tree Church in Ohaupo provided a unique backdrop for the heartfelt and emotional ceremony.  We didn't have to venture far for photos because the grounds are immaculately groomed and full of beautiful spots to wander through. A favourite moment had to be the flower girls racing down the flower lined path and ducking under the arch made by the arms of the bride and groom.  The Boatshed was a great spot to finish the evening looking over Lake Karapiro as the sun went down.
