Nadia & Brayden

On the last day of Winter I kicked off my 2019/2020 season with the most spectacular of weddings.

Taranaki turned on the sunshine for Nadia & her top 10 man, Brayden. With a garden filled with magnolias & a sunset to die for, it was a photographer's dream. 
Hanna & I had a riot as we hung on for dear life whilst rushing to beat the sunset, riding a golf cart.....& it was sooo worth it! 

When Nadia first wrote to me, she described herself as being as ‘creative as wooden spoon’! Thanks to some brilliant ideas & some amazing vendors, her wedding quickly became magazine worthy!

Celebrant Josie initiated an ingenious twist on their ceremony by involving the guests in a ‘flash mob’ style reading. Of course, everyone was in on it except the wedding party & it was evident that it took their breath away as individuals took in turn to stand up from the crowd & join in with their sentence until everyone was speaking in unison. So special.

Nadia & Brayden (& the rest of the crew), thank you for the laughs, the tears, the innuendos, the introduction to a 'shoey' & the adventure!
