I was lucky enough to have Annalee and Trent fly me up to New Plymouth to photograph their gorgeous wedding day. Annalee is an incredibly talented makeup artist and is all too familiar with the wedding industry. So it came as no surprise that everything was beautifully designed and thought out, down to the finest details. She had incorporated a lot of her friends as vendors, which I loved, and they all did a phenomenal job. Annalee and Trent didn’t miss a beat and the result was an elegant and classic wedding day, with guests enjoyment and entertainment as a real priority.

The weather had been teasing us with rain on the forecast, but on the morning of the wedding the skies cleared and mother nature put on an absolutely bluebird day. I spent the morning with both the girls and boys, both crews welcoming me in with open arms. The ceremony and reception was held at the beautiful Barton Estate where guests were invited for poolside drinks when they arrived. Afternoon cocktails were served from a caravan bar and a grazing table was set up for nibbles. We ducked away for a few snaps post-ceremony at a nearby farm, finding shade from the sun in some lovely native bush. We were also lucky enough to duck outside in between speeches and catch the most glorious sunset, a stellar way to end a beautiful day.
