These autumn days might be cooler, but the colours are so warm & delicious. Oscar & Shanaye's wedding last week at The Hideaway was autumnal perfection. I'm so excited to share their beautiful wedding on the blog today!!!
Since the first time we met this awesome couple we were so excited for their wedding day to arrive. Oscar and Shanaye are such genuine, relaxed and fun people to be around. We knew their wedding day would be a reflection of that and we weren't disappointed. Spending the day with Oscar, Shanaye and their awesome bridal party was a laugh a minute (probably more!) and every aspect of the day was relaxed so everyone could soak up the celebrations and happy atmosphere.
My morning started with Shanaye, her bridesmaids and parents at The Lodges in Invercargill. I'd barely been in the door five minutes before the bridesmaids had me in fits of laughter and everyone, including Shanaye's mum, was participating in a dance party! This crew knew how wedding day mornings should go!
Shanaye had thought of every little detail.
When I mentioned how relaxed the day was, I wasn't joking. Having time to play a few rounds of card games on the morning of a wedding day was certainly a first!
I was so excited to see Shanaye in her wedding dress. You made a stunning bride Shanaye!!!
On the other side of town Oscar was getting ready at home before heading out to The Hideaway.
And The Hideaway looked magical with the sun shining adding some warmth to the autumn air.
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Jenkins!
Possibly the best backdrop ever for family photos! Just look at those autumn colours.
Best part about autumn weddings for photographers?? Portrait time is in the best part of the day when the light gets all glow-y before sunset!
Oscar and Shanaye had their reception at the Invercargill Working Men's Club and the room was epic! Black tables & chairs, paired with twinkling branch centrepieces & street lanterns gave the feeling almost as if you were outside on a warm evening. And with both Oscar and Shanaye being netball fans, the seating plan was perfectly fitting with the guests all seated according to netball positions.
Special thanks to superstar bridesmaid Sarah for this shot of us with our awesome couple!
Shanaye & Oscar!!! Congratulations friends. What a beautiful, fun wedding day! Seriously I don't think it would have been possible to pack in any more laughter and love into one day. Thank you for having us as a part of your wedding - we loved celebrating with you! 😍
It has been a wonderful journey getting to know you both. You guys are incredible and we look forward to seeing what the future has in store for you! Enjoy your honeymoon. x
