Nick and Sarah’s wedding was the kind of wedding that every photographer dreams about capturing … elegant, stylish, fun, playful and downright beautiful!
There was no expense spared to create this gorgeous Valentine’s Day wedding, which was planned to perfection by the bride herself. The ceremony took place at The Estate, with a lavish reception held at Mudbrick Vineyard complete with an incredible sunset and some mighty fine dancing moves!
I heave HEAPS of photos to share from this magical day so grab a cuppa, get comfy and enjoy…
Nick and the boys had a bit of a run around down at Oneroa Beach before getting ready for the big day.
Nick’s brother Jamie had a quick run through of the song he was going to sing at the ceremony…
Meanwhile the girls were onsite at The Estate, preparing for the wedding with hair and make up from Sarah Knight
Sarah’s gorgeous wedding dress was created by designer Jane Yeh
Love this shot of Sarah’s mum checking her out in her wedding gown!
The bridesmaid’s dresses were clever wrap numbers from Miss Crabb
In a private moment Nick’s grandfather, Sir John Todd, gifted his watch to his grandson just prior to the ceremony commencing.
Celebrant Adrianne Dallimore began the ceremony… I love these images as Sarah is escorted down the aisle by her dad to her waiting (and slightly nervous!) groom.
The ceremony location looked amazing, set up by wonderful Waiheke florist Virginia Thompson from Flower Gallery, using a gorgeous range of decorative pieces from Centre Piece (wedding arch supplied by Figment Events).
Borrowing from Sarah’s greek heritage, their ceremony included the crowning of the bride and groom with connected wreaths.
We had a bit of fun with Nick and Sarah’s awesome bridal party at The Estate before heading to Mudbrick for the wedding reception.
I love these photos!
This amazing tree grove is always on my hit list when I’m shooting up at Mudbrick! Love it!
We were lucky that the sun peeked through the trees right at the end of the our shoot in the grove…
The Mudbrick Restaurant looked especially gorgeous with the addition of a curtain of fairy lights to add even more sparkle to the occasion.
Sarah and Nick’s reception evening was fabulous; filled with heartfelt speeches, photobooth fun from Photobooth Waiheke, and much laughter and frivolity… not to mention the killer sunset!

The happy couple enjoyed a very romantic first dance to “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri which had everyone up and on the dance floor… such a great song for a first dance.
… and then some crazier dancing took the floor! Fun! (Great playlist by the way guys).
Thanks so much for choosing us to capture your incredible wedding Sarah and Nick … wishing you much happiness in the years to come. x
