I’ve got to admit that the weather was a hot topic of conversation in the lead up to Ashley and Jeremy’s wedding day… it was forecasting heavy rain and with hopes for a beach ceremony on Onetangi Beach, this was a bit of a concern. As it turns out we did have some rain (and it was heavy!) but luckily it stopped in enough time to go ahead with not only a ceremony on the beach but also our pre-wedding first look and photo session. Phew!
Jeremy and his boys got ready for the day at a holiday home along Onetangi beach called Beach Front Bliss… we had a great time with them mucking around on the beach before the rain began to fall…
Just in case you missed the superman moment…
Ashley and her girls had rented a holiday home along 3rd Ave, also in Onetangi. Friends and family played a huge part in this beautiful wedding and Ashley was lucky to have her Aunt Vicky who is a hairstylist in Wellington working her magic, as well as another Aunty creating the amazing bouquets that she and the girls carried. Auckland make up artist Kaz did Ashley’s make up for the day.
Our initial attempt at a first look had to be delayed due to rain but we waited it out in the cars for few minutes to see what it would do and breathed a sigh of relief when the weather lifted… and so I bring you, First Look, Take Two:
Such a beautiful moment x
Such a little cutie!
Meanwhile, sunshine and blue skies were starting to show up as family and friends readied the ceremony site.
Jeremy and Ashley’s reception was being held at The Venue, a hop, skip and a jump away from Onetangi Beach… I loved their fresh colour scheme of white and yellow.
And then it was ‘go time!’
Love the expressions in the above photo, such a cute look.
Thanks for inviting us to capture your beautiful wedding Jeremy and Ashley… I hope you enjoy this selection of images from the day.
