Yesterday we headed across to Rotorua to photograph Steven & Jess’ wedding – which was held at St. Faith’s church.
This was without a doubt the coolest church we’ve photographed in to date – every row of seats was intricately carved with Maori designs – and the whole interior of the church was part cathedral, part Wharenui. Awesome!!
After their ceremony, we headed down to the Government Gardens for some photos with them & their bridal party.
We found a cool grove of trees in lovely autumn colours, and then after a few shots here headed across to Sulphur Point, where we got some fantastic shots with steam rising all around them.
Jess was so willing & relaxed about traversing some slightly less-than-traditional ground to reach some of the spots, and is totally the reason we were able to get such striking shots! Well done
We finished up with a few shots outside the Blue Baths (funny story… there was another wedding reception taking place here, and the guests were quite confused to see another bride! When we looked across to the Runanga Tearooms where Jess & Steven’s reception was being held, there was the other bride & groom getting shots on the verandah – with their guests looking just as perplexed!)
It was a really fun & laid back wedding – and you guys were a pleasure to photograph.
Enjoy the photos, and we’ll have more up soon!
