It's been almost two years since Rowan first contacted me about wedding photography. Since then we've gotten to know Hayden & Rowan well and we absolutely loved the time we spent with them at their Bull Creek engagement session last year. Rowan & Hayden share a beautiful friendship & love. They laugh together often (sometimes playfully at each other) and when they look at each other you can see the quiet yet immense love they have for one another.
Hayden & Rowan's Grandview Gardens wedding day was perfection; with gorgeous detailing (I'm obsessed with those wedding flowers), an awesome bridal party and some pretty epic dancing in the evening! Not to mention this awesome couple...Rowan you looked incredible & Hayden you scrubbed up well!
Rowan, her Mum and bridesmaids got ready at Silver Peaks Lodge and the whole morning was so chilled out.
Absolutely gorgeous Row!
Hayden & his groomsmen had an equally chilled out morning at Longbourne Lodge, getting ready & enjoying a few beers.
Grandview Gardens was picture perfect.
Hayden & Rowan cried and laughed their way through their wedding vows.
Grandview Gardens has the perfect set up! We did all our portraits around the extensive grounds while guests got to chill out at the bar.
We had a lot of laughs hanging out with Rowan & Hayden's awesome bridal party!
Our last stop was the lavender patch. 💜
Then it was time to party!
Glasses & bottles clinked as toasts were made to the newlyweds.
The venue was filled with the sounds of celebration & the delicious smells of dinner.
Dunedin based band, Idol Frets, soon had the dance floor full with Hayden & Rowan leading the way!
Thanks Kara for taking this last photo for us! And thank you Hayden & Rowan for having us as your photographers!!!
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Allison! We loved being a part of your wedding day celebrating with you both and we wish you all the happiness in the world for your marriage. You guys are just awesome & I know you have a brilliant future ahead.
