It’s perfect timing that in the month that NZ legalised gay marriage, I get to share on my blog the lovely civil union of Caroline and Sarah, who were married at Mudbrick Vineyard on Easter weekend.
Caroline and her family got ready for the day at Claire’s Luxury Hideaway in Onetangi, a premium property which is always an absolute pleasure to shoot in.
Caroline’s bridesmaid was her stunning niece Anna, who tried her best to remember her ‘school tie days’ while helping Caroline try on the stylish retro tie Sarah had given her a part of her wedding gift.
Caroline’s navy pinstripe suit was from boutique suit makers Anton‘s in Australia
Sarah and her family had booked a place just around the corner which overlooked Onetangi Beach, one of Waiheke’s most popular beaches.
Sarah was accompanied by her sister Emma and niece Aisha
Sarah and Caroline wanted to do their photos before the ceremony so that they could spend more time with their guests following the service so they had a ‘first look’ moment before the shoot in one of my favourite locations…
It was such an emotional meeting when they first caught sight of each other…
Lance’s photo above – love it!
And then it was time for the ceremony to begin at Mudbrick, under the expert eye of Auckland celebrant Chris Mullane
We had a wee bit of time up our sleeves after the family portraits so we spent some time in the Mudbrick vines, taking advantage of the lovely light as the sun went down.
What an amazing wedding… Sarah and Caroline, your love is divine. Thanks for trusting us to capture it xx
