All you need is LOVE!
And a whole lots of friends and family to help celebrate that love.
River Ridge Retreat in the Catlins is the perfect place to host a wedding – guests can stay in the on site accommodation for the whole weekend so the celebrations can just go on and on.
I have a whole lot of prettiness and s sprinkling of cuteness to share with you.
Lisa and Wayne along with Neko and Sariah (Wayne’s children) were so great to spend the day with. There were kids, and dog, everywhere and it was a real family celebration. SO much fun ….
Lisa got ready at her Mum and Dad’s in Balclutha
with her sister Maire and sister-in-law Shelley helping her out.
The house was filled with love and laughter and really helped set the scene for the day ahead.
Too pretty – I know, I know, I’ve probably over done it again with the shoes photos.
Lisa’s step daughter Sariah and her little niece Charlotte were super excited to be a part of the day.
I loved working with them both so much – the most helpful and cute flower girls ever.
Thanks so much girls – I couldn’t have done it without you.
Looking gorgeous ladies – two weddings in a row with coral bridesmaids – gorgeous colour.
Lisa – you are stunning!
A wee peek at the venue before the bride arrives – beautiful decorations.
I believe this is a special friend of Lisa’s – he (or maybe she) made a special guest appearance.
Wayne and the boys – patiently waiting for Lisa to arrive.
Here comes the bride ……
The flower girls taking their petal sprinkling very seriously.
One very proud dad right there ……
This is precisely the moment when a bug, or maybe it was a speck of dust got in Wayne’s eye.
Caused a fair bit of eye watering too.
The kids were involved in the vows too – very cool idea. I think I heard them promising to do the dishes and keep their rooms tidy…. or maybe I just imagined it.
Love that the dogs seemed to be taking it all in.
Robyn Fox, the celebrant did a fabulous job with serious business of the day.
Can highly recommend her if you’re looking for a celebrant for your big day!
Sealed with a kiss – right under a beautiful rustic archway.
Kelvin and Paul – Wayne’s support crew for the day.
Awesome little ring boxes – don’t they look amazing.
Sariah – you are so pretty. Thanks for all your help taking photos – you got some great shots.
Check out this little bundle of cuteness – Charlotte.
Thanks Neko for striking this pose for me.
Looking pretty cool buddy.
Lisa and Wayne – your wedding day was amazing! Rob and I had a great time with you all.
Wishing you both and Sariah and Neko (and the dogs) a lifetime of love and happiness.
Can’t wait for you to see the rest of your images and your photobook.
All you need is LOVE xox
