Shelley has been a family friend since I was a kid. When she asked me if I could photograph her wedding to the lovely Mike I was beyond thrilled! I made the trip to Papamoa beach for their ceremony, where you couldn't have asked for more stunning weather. Shelley's son had flown back over from England for the first time in ten years, and used his amazing vocal talents to sing his mum down the aisle. I may or may not have cried behind my camera lens. You could not wipe the grins off Shelley and Mike's faces as they made their vows, these two have so much love for each other. After this we walked along Papamoa beach for photos in the golden sunlight. The night ended with an awesome BBQ in their own beautiful back yard down the road. Friends and family relaxed in the setting sun with delicious food and drinks, made many toasts to the lovely couple, and Shelley's son provided the musical entertainment for the evening. This was the perfect Kiwi wedding to be part of!
