Waiheke Elopement: Den and Doug at Delamore Lodge

001_delamore lodge wedding

Well it’s no secret at all that I LOOOOVE me a good elopement!  Eloping to Waiheke Island is definitely one of the better ways to have a stress free wedding day with all the enjoyment of a romantic holiday on a beautiful island.  An island which, by the way, was recently rated by Lonely Planet as the 5th Best Destination In. The. World.  Not too shabby, Waiheke.

Combine a stress free elopement with a magical venue like Delamore Lodge on a beautiful spring day and you have an easy recipe for a spectacular wedding … without further ado let me introduce you to Den and Doug, all the way from the United Kingdom!

I loved Den’s dress, and flirty little lace number she brought over from the UK that suited her perfectly!  Doug was decked out in Scottish splendor in a kilt with all the trimmings.

Den and Doug’s wedding was officiated by local celebrant Rosemareyn van der Sluis who did a beautiful job of their simple and heartfelt ceremony.

We spent a little bit of time photographing around Delamore Lodge before heading out to a couple of Waiheke locations that I thought would suit Den and Doug.  Definitely one of the great things about elopements from a photographers perspective is the freedom to explore and spend a little bit more time indulging in the creative photography session without the time constraints I would normally have on a wedding day.

Keen walkers, who love nothing more than a good ramble, I thought a bit of native NZ bush would be a great start to our session.
