Catherine and Stefan’s stylish wedding day at Cable Bay Vineyards was planned to perfection by the couple, working with the wonderful Sophia Hoadley from My Waiheke Weddings and Events. There was no stone left unturned in the pursuit of a perfect day including man-height white letters spelling the word “LOVE”. Romantic and beautiful, elegant and stylish… just a few words to describe what must have been one of the most gorgeous weddings Waiheke Island has seen this summer!
The boys got ready for the big day at The Boatshed, always one of my favourite places on Waiheke to photograph. The vibe was nice and relaxed with lots of easy banter. Although Cyclone Pam was forecast to visit during the weekend, she stayed away until the day after and the weather for Stefan and Catherine’s wedding was perfection…
The girls were getting ready in a holiday home in Oneroa and were under the expert care of local make up artist Charlotte Edwardes and hairdresser Amanda Sands.
Love love love this one!! So dreamy.
Such a tender moment when Catherine’s dad saw her for the first time…
Such a perfect day for a wedding!
We headed off site to a new photography location I had scouted, which was such a great spot to shoot in, perfect light direction and just gorgeous at that time of the evening!
I think Catherine’s stunning wedding dress needs a special mention … it was purchased in Sydney and is the work of designer Inbal Dror. It had an incredible train (next season wedding trend alert, I reckon), and beautiful corset-like detailing on the bodice. Gorgeous and such a fun dress to photograph!!
Thanks Catherine and Stefan for sharing your beautiful day with us – it was such a pleasure to capture your stunning wedding! xx
