Oh my gosh, what to say about these guys? This wedding would have to, without a doubt, be one of THE BEST weddings ever. It was full of emotion, laughter and love and it was AMAZING. Despite heavy rain warnings, the day was an absolute scorcher, getting up to 30 degress at the ceremony! Anyway I don't think I can do them justice by writing about their gorgeous day and you're not here to read my waffle so here are some of their images....
Sarah is one STUNNING bride.
And Erin heads over to see what the boys are up to.
There's just enough room in here for one photographer, one groomsman, one sister of the groom and of course, the groom!
Matt's best man, Tiger, is in charge of tieing the ties. Tiger ties the ties. Say that fast.
What a good-looking groom!
I love these shots of Matt and his dad just before the ceremony.
And then it was time...
Matt's reaction was so lovely.
Hampton Lea Gardens
sure puts on a beautiful wedding.
So much laughter ... that's what it's all about, right? Having fun, with your best bud.
Sarah and her gorgeous bridesmaids! Great bunch of girls. x
I think this was the part Sarah's sister Rebecca (to the left of Sarah) says something funny/inappropriate. Probably both. :)
Just as we headed off towards Tai Tapu Lodge
, the weather cut up and it was just as well we had this beautiful loft to shoot in.
Just before we headed in to the reception we took a quick shot in amongst the grapevines (and yes, it was raining so it was a very quick shot!).
And then into the reception where there were individually labelled envelopes on the tables, and instant cameras which of course were very popular! I may or may not have photobombed a group of people (it was only the netball boys and they won't mind). :p
Very Vogue guys!
Thank you, THANK you, THANK YOU so much for asking me to photograph your amazing, beautiful, heartfelt wedding. I had a blast. xxx
