As out lovey bride Chantelle and her bridesmaids had their hair and makeup done at home in  Dairy Flat the dashing groom, Kurt and his groomsmen flew into The Hunting Lodge in Waimauku  by helicopter (courtesy of Heletranz in Albany) a perfect start for wedding photos as the boys jumped off the chopper into a paddock over the road from the wedding venue.
Family, friends and loved-ones gathered in The Hunting Lodge’s pick-nick area where bathed in  golden autumn sunshine they looked on as our gorgeous couple made their solemn vows to each other.
After group photos and congratulations we headed off for the creative bridal party  photos in the vines and around the estate as the sun slowly slunk away behind the Wiamauku hills we returned to join the guests for wood-fired pizza , Mexican tacos, reception , speeches and dancing.  A truly fabulous, joyful and love filled wedding day. Just the sort of wedding that makes me glad to be a wedding photographer.Black and white portrait of bride in full length white wedding dress from Astra Bridal. Flower crown and bouquet in hand.
