Abbie & Matt were married at the Old Church in Hawkes Bay on a beautiful spring day in November. They chose to have a relaxed mid-week ceremony in the courtyard followed by an intimate lunch in the conservatory with close family and friends. My petite package, which I offer to couples who value high quality photography but don’t need to invest in a full day of coverage, was the perfect fit for this celebration. With such a ridiculously good looking couple, two gorgeous flower girls, a beautiful bouquet from Madisons and a secret garden for photos, I was in my own little heaven! All prettiness aside though, my favourite detail of this day was Abbie & Matt’s request to recreate their parents wedding photos to surprise them with later. Such a special and thoughtful thing to do.

Abbie – you looked like a princess – I hope you felt like one too. I wish you and Matt all the very best for the future and am so glad I got to be a part of your special day.
