Julia & Nick's Cardboard Cathedral wedding

Written by Angela Penn on January 3rd, 2016.      0 comments


Well, what an epic day this was!  Starting out at Julia & Nick's city apartment, this beautiful couple got ready only metres from each other as they were doing the first look at home, before shooting up to the Port Hills for pre-ceremony photos.

Julia's sister Aline, was her bridesmaid and speaking French to each other was just perfect language for these two beauties.

The boys get ready downstairs...

And then time for the reveal and I just LOVE Nick's face as he sees Julia in her dress for the first time that day.

And then off to the Port Hills which is where Julia & Nick enjoy bike riding, enjoying the beautiful view.

We then shot out to Godley Head for some more photos and the view was STUNNING!  And I got to photograph this gorgeous girl too so I was one very happy photographer!

Julia & Nick chose the Christchurch Transitional Cathedral (The Cardboard Cathedral as we all know it by) as their church to get married in as they both love the city so this was a natural choice for them.

A lot of hard work had gone into the table settings and the room looked amazing (not to mention the cakes smelled divine!).

Their first dance was so much fun! Some of the guests knew the moves (and some of them didn't) but that didn't stop people from joining in!
