We had a fantastic time shooting Katy and Ed on Waiheke Island, a lovely couple from New Zealand and Ireland respectively. The weather caused an interesting change in plans, with a social cocktail hour for everyone to socialise before the ceremony, but gave us lots of extra options for photos before and after. It was great to hear all the family stories from visitors from overseas, and to enjoy the craic long into the night, until we sadly had to get the last ferry home!
Tash and Robbie are good friends of Sven and Nick, and it was a great pleasure to photograph their wedding, paying special attention of course to their young daughter Maria, who was a focal point of the day. Tash and Robbie are keen climbers and nature lovers, and their wedding ceremony was conducted outside on a beautiful late summer's day in Birkenhead, in a park overlooking Auckland Harbour.
Everyone enjoyed the day thoroughly, sitting outside in the sunshine and playing games and eating cupcakes and other treats. Following the outdoor gathering we took the bridal party out for photos around the local bays and under the harbour bridge before retiring to their lovely home for a dinner reception.
Okay the lead photo is Hayley and her horse Maddie, but Liam and Hayley are both old friends of Chromatic Bros. photographer Nick, and so you will see him in lots of these photos in the wedding party too. Sven shot the wedding for the lovely couple, with Nick shooting as well when he wasn't busy hanging with the boys and enjoying the day. It was also fun meeting a lot of Liam's extended family who came across from Ireland to liven up the festivities!
Liam and Hayley were married on a lovely summer's day at Soljan's Winery in Kumeu, with Hayley having hair and makeup done at Dry & Tea in the city. A special trip was made via their house on the way to the ceremony to visit Maddie, the (second?) love of Hayley's life. Sven and Nick both had a great time, enjoying the interesting shooting opportunities at Soljans around the vineyards and wine barrels, and enjoyed the good food and wine.
