You can never plan the weather. It comes and goes as it pleases and on some occasions, it can make or break a day. I have always found that when it comes to weddings, you can always work with what the day brings, even when it is cyclone. Ex-tropical cyclone Fehi decided to make its way to our shores a few days after Briana and Dave’s wedding, but as you can see, rather than put a complete dampener on the day, we worked with the wonderfully moody backdrop it provided. It was a great setting to have contrast with the warm, sunny vibes of the couple and the wedding party.
I met Anthony and Helayna just over a year before their wedding, we discussed some details of their day at a gorgeous Cafe made from an old train carriage in Kumeu, Auckland. I instantly became eager to take on their wedding as they had decided to get married at Ascension Winery in Matakana - this venue had been on my list for a while!
Fast forward 13 months and the atmosphere was so chilled and relaxed, with a lot of laughs with the beautiful bride and her closest friends and family.
