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.
The ceremony was officiated by one of Waiheke’s most popular celebrants Irene Armstrong.
Phew! Love this expression from Amy following the conclusion of the ceremony! 😀
The siblings photo!
The girls’ gorgeous natural make up was the work Amy Crawford from The Beauty Spot Waiheke

… while the girls figure out their next move!
The beautiful hairstyles were the handiwork of Jules Arlove from Hair on Waiheke.
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!!
We were fortunate after a heavily overcast day to get a spectacular sunset which brought out all the iphones!
Love these!! Such gorgeous light.
Thumbs up indeed! Thanks Amy and Paul for an amazing day … we thoroughly enjoyed capturing your gorgeous wedding party celebrations and wish you a lifetime of happiness. x
