The first time I went to meet with Trish and Wayne we ended up talking for way longer than the usual wedding consult. They’re the kind of people you just instantly connect with and I knew photographing their wedding was going to be so much fun. Since their wedding I’ve been invited back to photograph their growing family, and I’m so glad they keep asking me back, because they’re a total delight to work with.
Trish and Wayne were married in the very place they got engaged – Shaftesbury Glade Cottages, a total hidden gem in Te Aroha. The morning of their wedding I arrived with Trish to find she had been hit with a gastro bug over night – totally not what anyone wants on the day of their wedding! Despite that, Trish managed to look absolutely radiant and definitely made Wayne’s jaw drop when she walked down the aisle. And because she wasn’t well enough to head out for photos after the ceremony, we did an anniversary shoot instead <3
Enjoy this little glimpse of their wedding day, and keep your eye out for a few more posts of this gorgeous couple in the near future!
