A wedding with all of my favourite things - sun, the ocean and loads of laughs. Orua Beach House is one of those magical places where the world slows down, city life slips away and you wish you could stick around for ever. Brent and Anna's day over looking Hot Water Beach was the right amount of chilled, adventurous and fun. Ask most wedding photographers and they will tell you they squeal with joy (sometimes on the inside) when their couples tell them they are up for some adventure and don't mind the hassle of hard-to-get-to epic locations. Swapping heels for jandals or sneakers, all 10 of the bridal party tackled a steep cliff climb to one of the most stunning landscapes in New Zealand. After a quick run around in the forest we headed back for a seaside ceremony and drinks overlooking another spectacular clifftop view. The Dirty Dancing inspired first dance was another highlight - some guests were involved, others screamed from the sidelines and of course it wouldn't be Dirty Dancing with out the legendary lift. Ambitious but they nailed it!
