Winery Wedding

Brooke & Barry

Brooke & Barry

While I love photographing weddings in Auckland; travelling for weddings is part of my job, I love to photograph weddings in different places so as soon as I get an enquiry I am so excited about new locations. Brooke and Barry were no exception when I found out their wedding was being held in Kerikeri. After finding out they were expecting their third baby, they brought forward their wedding to May. This has to be one of my favourite times of year - not too hot, but normally still warm enough for a wedding, and the colours of the autumn leaves turning makes for stunning images!

When I arrived there was rain, it was cloudy and the weather was looking a bit grim, the girls were busy with hair an make-up which was a good time to start ...
