On Mother’s Day weekend I have the absolute privilege to photograph my close friends wedding!
The wedding took place in the beautiful Taranaki. The sun shone and the mountain even came out to say Hi!
Without further ado, I present to you, Victoria and Simon!
Victoria and her maid of honour got ready in New Plymouth. The girls at Cleaver & Rougue were incredible!
After that it was off to a gorgeous beach house to photograph some details. One of these rings if the engagement ring, the other is a promise ring. Both just stunning!
Victoria also had two wedding dresses! The one on the left was worn throughout the ceremony, high tea and photos. The one on the right was her reception dress as it made for easy dancing. Both such incredibly stunning dresses, and Victoria rocked both!
Simon got ready at their home in the beautiful country village of Opunake, which is also where the ceremony took place. He looked absolutely incredible in his tux with full tails, cummerbund and bow-tie.
The ceremony was a country themed with a high tea. It took place in the Opunake Town Hall (Fun fact, my husband’s great aunt petitioned and fought to keep this very hall open, so designed the interior when it was saved). There was bunting, toi toi, and fresh flowers in abundance. The favours were take home seed packets - how amazing is that!
This stunning cake was made by Victoria’s talented Aunt.
The bonus of being in Taranaki is having one of New Zealand’s most stunning mountains as a backdrop. It was cold that close but oh so worth it.
The reception was a dance party that took place back in New Plymouth. Such a fun end to a stunning day. I was so incredibly privileged to get to take part in this gorgeous wedding!
