Caitlin and Cole on a wild Waiheke
With so many weddings each season, I look at the photos a month or two down the track and get blown away again. Seeing everything come together and seeing the brides and grooms look so happy, it's amazing. This makes it really tricky when trying to choose which photos to share on here. Now is one of those times. Danelle Bohane is such a talented photographer that I became fully immersed in these photos and struggled to narrow it down to just 20 or so. I managed it, just...
It was a blustery autumn day which made for beautiful wedding photos, not so great for a bride on her wedding day. Caitlin and the girls started the day at Te Whau Point. Hair, make up and nails were done by two of her close friends, the scene like something from an old world Hollywood movie; soft curls, plum lips, silk gowns and soft sunlight filtering through the curtains.
Although the weather added a drama and beauty to the surrounding, Caitlin's bride tribe was on hand to keep her veil in check. The ceremony and reception were held at the oh so beautiful Mudbrick, where Caitlin and Cole said their 'I do's'. After the formalities, photos of the couple were taken in the Waiheke wilderness, among olive groves, gravel roads and rolling fields.
The evening was filled with friends and family, delicious food, they ate, drank and danced the night away.
