We have been Kumeu Wedding Photographers nearly all this summer with so many of our lovely couples choosing venues in  the rural Auckland suburb of Kumeu for their wedding day. I met up with Steven & Jana to plan their wedding photography 5 months before their big day after lots of advice from us on the best way to choose a wedding photographer so we were ready to go.
The bride and the girls chose Lichfield’s Cottages for their hair and make up. A boutique venue  with a lovely little garden at charming friendly hosts. The rain stayed away and the sun came out to play for Jana & Steven’s wedding at Kumeu Valley Estate. The welcome shade of the Riverhead woods, a terrific Auckland location, well between Kumeu and Riverhead to be more precise, was a perfect spot for creative wedding photos before heading back to one of my favourite Auckland wedding venues, Kumeu Valley Estate for a riot of fun and laughter as the wedding reception got into full swing. Amazing heartfelt speeches from bride and groom had family and loved ones in tears of joy and laughter.
