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.

The Goldie Room \\ Waiheke Island Wedding Photographer

I have been looking forward to sharing the lovely, fun and relaxed wedding day of Sarah and Kieran, recently married at one of Waiheke’s best wedding venues The Goldie Room.  To shed a bit more light on the vibe of the day for the uninitiated viewer I have two words for you… Dance Off.  More specifically, father-in-law Dance Off.  Oh yeah.

The boys were getting ready for the big day at The Palm Beach Resort, where they were having a few beers and laughs to kick off the day…

The girls were likewise enjoying an easy start to the day under the expert care of Amelia Rush from Boutique Bride.  Earlier in the day Christina Dellar from Freckles and Blush had worked her magic and the girls were looking amazing and relaxed in the lead up to the ceremony.

Cable Bay Wedding Photographer \\ Waiheke Island Wedding

Catherine and Stefan’s stylish wedding day at Cable Bay Vineyards was planned to perfection by the couple, working with the wonderful Sophia Hoadley from My Waiheke Weddings and Events.  There was no stone left unturned in the pursuit of a perfect day including man-height white letters spelling the word “LOVE”.  Romantic and beautiful, elegant and stylish… just a few words to describe what must have been one of the most gorgeous weddings Waiheke Island has seen this summer!

085_beautiful waiheke wedding at Cable Bay Vineyards

The boys got ready for the big day at The Boatshed, always one of my favourite places on Waiheke to photograph.  The vibe was nice and relaxed with lots of easy banter.  Although Cyclone Pam was forecast to visit during the weekend, she stayed away until the day after and the weather for Stefan and Catherine’s wedding was perfection…

I think Catherine’s stunning wedding dress needs a special mention … it was purchased in Sydney and is the work of designer Inbal Dror.  It had an incredible train (next season wedding trend alert, I reckon), and beautiful corset-like detailing on the bodice.  Gorgeous and such a fun dress to photograph!!
