Ben & Tish

Ben & Tish

I photographed Tish and Ben for their engagement shoot last August in the middle of winter when the skies were dark and threatening rain. Coming back to Kaiapoi only five months later for their wedding, it couldn’t have been a more different day. Although the day started out with some heavy fog, it turned into the hottest day of the month with clear blue skies and sunshine all day long.

Tish and Ben are a wonderfully fun couple with surrounded by an equally fun group of family and friends. They were all so laidback which made it very easy to get some candid shots of everyone having a good time. The ceremony was held at Totara, a private homestead in West Eyreton that had stunning park-like gardens and provided enough shade for people to escape from the hot Canterbury sun. Later that evening, everyone moved on to West Eyreton Hall for the reception.
