An Auckland City church wedding out of a movie

The historic building was filled with friends, family, the romantic sounds of violin and piano and was glowing with beautiful light from the gorgeous stained glass windows. A magical beam of sunlight came in through one of the high windows, just hitting the couple, like a natural spotlight.

There was even a "Romantic Comedy" scene when Will accidentally dropped the ring! A moment I am sure the guests will never let him forget.

The party continued at Hedges Estate in Waiuku, where this boutique wedding venue was the perfect rural kiwi countryside setting for an intimate reception. With lovely surrounding gardens, picture perfect hedges and stunning views - this was the ideal location for the bridal party shoot. Not to mention the perfect sunset to capture some highlights of the couple. We couldn't have asked for more!
