Rosie and Sam's Wedding

From the moment Rosie and Sam asked us to photograph their wedding I knew that it was going to be a great finale to our wedding season. Held at the stunning Mudbrick Vineyard on Waiheke Island on a lovely day in late autumn, the air was charged with anticipation and excitement. Rosie wore a gorgeous silk gown finished with beautiful lace. The colour theme of pastels was off set with the striking purple of the bridesmaid's dresses. This colour was echoed in the many lavender hedges that surround Mudbrick.

Rosie and Sam came together for a 'first look' and their bridal party and bride and groom photos before the ceremony, thus ensuring that they had plenty of time to party with their guest's after the ceremony. The sunset was the perfect backdrop to capture some stunning images of our lovely couple. The first dance was magical with guests lighting their way with sparklers.

The thing that I loved most about their wedding was the tears of joy, the laughter and the special moments that it was my privilege to capture.
