It really has been a summer of the most beautiful weddings on Waiheke this year. Gemma and Jeremy’s wedding at Cable Bay was no exception and with gorgeous gentle lighting from the ‘softbox sky’ I felt like one very lucky photographer indeed to be capturing this perfect wedding day!
Jeremy and the lads were chilling out at their superb accommodation venue overlooking Onetangi Beach when we arrived, settling into the easy-going vibe of the day…
Lovin’ the jandals, boys!
The girls were equally chilled and happy at the wonderful Matiatia Bay where they were being attended to by Amelia Rush from Boutique Bride (Hair) and Christina Dellar from Freckles and Blush (make up).
Vicky from Wildflower Waiheke was responsible for the beautiful flowers on Gemma’s wedding day
Gemma had allowed heaps of time in the getting ready stages which is always a great idea… it meant we had time to capture some fun candid moments as well as some portraits around the beautiful grounds of Matiatia Bay.
Boom! Such a stunner!
And then it was time to leave for the ceremony at Cable Bay Vineyards…
The weather was looking a touch inclement but Liz the Cable Bay weddings manager was onsite and confident it would hold … and she was absolutely right! (phew)
Love these reaction shots of Jeremy as he sees his beautiful bride!!
The reception was all set up and awaiting the guests as we spent a few extra moments with Gemma, Jeremy and their fun bridal party shooting around the gorgeous Cable Bay grounds and wine cellar.
Yep Jeremy, I think we will go that way!
The Cable Bay wine library and cellar is such a great space to shoot in (and sooooo nice and cool on a hot day!)
I thought I’d end with the happy couple’s photo idea to do a Soprano’s promo shot underneath the chandelier in the wine library … funny!
Thanks Gemma and Jeremy for inviting us to photograph your fabulous wedding day… we had a blast! x
