Poderi Crisci Wedding // Waiheke Island Wedding Photography

poderi crisci wedding waiheke island_001

Craig and Mary were married a few weeks ago at stylish Waiheke wedding venue, Poderi Crisci, (which by the way recently took out the Best Destination Restaurant at the 2015 Metro Awards, congrats to Antonio and the team!).

The wedding wasn’t due to start until later in the day, so we spent some time before their ceremony capturing some beautiful portraits of Craig and Mary as they got ready for the occasion together at The Loft in Onetangi.

Mary had her hair done in Auckland by hairdresser Kerry Yaw from Exile Hair Design and make up by Charlotte Edwardes from Island Beauty.

Following our photo session at The Loft, Lance and I set off for Poderi Crisci to capture some of the guests arriving and enjoying the gorgeous venue before our bride and groom arrived…

One of Craig and Mary’s friends sang a song to the couple towards the end of the ceremony, which was a lovely touch.

The wedding reception was set up in the wine cellar and it looked amazing… one long table to seat their guests, with lots of candles adding to the golden atmosphere.  Later in the evening Craig and Mary had arranged for an opera singer to come and entertain.

Taiohi, Auckland Festival of Photography Exhibition.

One week to go until my new exhibition Taiohi opens here at the Emma Hughes Photography Gallery/Studio/Workspace!  I’m pretty excited and even more so because the wonderful subjects of my exhibition, school kids aged between 15 – 17, will be giving a short performance on the Opening Night… rumour has it there will be both a waiata and a haka to kick things off which is going to be AWESOME!!!!

Mudbrick Vineyard Wedding \\ Waiheke Wedding Photographer

001_mudbrick vineyard wedding

Well they do say that practice makes perfect and this was certainly the case when Amy married Paul recently at the wonderful Mudbrick Vineyard and Restaurant right here on Waiheke Island.  They were re-affirming their wedding vows, their original ceremony having taken place 6 weeks earlier in Australia due to some family members being unable to attend the New Zealand wedding celebrations.

Their day was relaxed, easy, and so so happy.  Full of laughter and some of the cutest kids you’ve ever seen …. Amy described the day as a ‘Family Party’ which are the perfect words to capture the vibe of their day.  Turns out that twice married (to the same person) definitely doubles the fun!

Our flowergirl got a little distracted on the way when she saw all the guests but was coaxed up the aisle by her dad … so cute!

Amy’s dad was unable to attend the NZ celebrations so she was walked down the aisle by her two nephews, looking very dapper in waistcoats and ties.

A bright, fresh and beautiful bouquet from Wildflower Waiheke … Amy was such a relaxed bride that she just left the design and flower choice completely up to Vicki… I’d say she nailed it!!
