Ciaran & Samantha

16th January 2015: On this day, two lovely people sealed the deal with a kiss & I had the honour of being there to record it.

It was a beautiful day full of bubbles, balloons, dancing & laughing. They had an amazing venue for the ceremony; a quaint chapel at Oak Valley in New Plymouth that had elegant arched windows, wooden pews & gas lights. The light inside was exquisite & worked beautifully with the romance. The guests mingled on a camomile lawn sipping bubbles & munching canapés whilst I photographed the bridal party in the gardens & at the lakeside.

They held their dinner & reception at Kaweroa Squash Club which was decked in simple whites, pink & blues with personalised Hershey’s kisses on the tables. A kiwi & a leprachaun topped the tiered cake, representing Sam’s New Zealand roots & Ciaran’s Irish ones & the evening was topped off with a LOT of dancing!

I wish you both a lifetime of happiness together. x
