SUMMER WEDDING AT THE RIVERHEAD BOATHOUSE // WILLA & MIKE
03//02//18

What can I say? I absolutely adored shooting this wedding. Willa and Mike are two of the loveliest, warmest people you could meet, just beautiful souls inside and out. From the day we met at their engagement photo shoot I knew I was going to love being part of this wedding day! The whole vibe was so happy and relaxed-as you can see they are smiling or laughing in almost every photo I took of them! Mike surprised his new bride with a song he had been practicing, and Willa surprised her mum with a beautiful Samoan Siva. It is safe to say "I got dust in my eyes" a few times at this wedding! Auckland weather delivered it's usual four seasons in a day-showers in the morning, then blistering sun for the ceremony and photo shoot, then torrential rain for the reception! It meant we were able to get an amazing variety of images and have a bit of an experiment with some night rain images which was super fun. Willa and Mike's guests were as friendly and happy as them, and also a real treat to be around. More than one person gave me well wishes for my pregnancy. I felt truly spoiled and it was one of those days I just felt so blessed that this is my job! Congratulations you two on a stunning celebration!
