Paige & Jamie

You know what they say about 'best laid plans'.....Paige had her dream wedding planned out & the weather was soooooo not playing ball! Despite resorting to plan 964, Paige & Jamie tied the knot in torrential rain that couldn't dampen their spirits. I know it is going to be a great story for them to retell & I can also safely say that I have never photographed a wedding in a milking shed!

The girls got ready in the quaint Kingfisher Cottage & everything was calm & easy whilst the boys were busy setting up bales for seating & a handmade arch, until the heavens opened.

A gazebo set up against the milking shed became the ceremony site whilst guests became the 'cattle' behind the fencing of the shed! The first kiss & signing of the register moved inside when the girls started baring the brunt of the rain.
We managed a small window of sunshine & drizzle & escaped for photos in Eltham in amongst some classic architecture. We even got a rainbow as we utilised the stands at Taumata Park.

The cake was a masterpiece, the drinks flowed, the speeches were hilarious & the dance floor was filled with kids attempting to show me how to breakdance. Who needs a bright sunny day anyway?!
