Waiheke Island Wedding Photos + Video – Chris + Lindsay – Forever Starts Now

 

Waiheke wedding photographers

 
Well, where do we start! We never actually got to meet Chris and Lindsay before their wedding. They were both based in Wellington so the whole wedding was organised from a distance. But via a bunch of emails and phone conversations we soon realised how meaningful and intimate Chris and Lindsay wanted to make their wedding day.
 

THE HIGHLIGHTS FILM

 

 
And then there was the poetry! Sheesh … Here I am, stuck for words trying to describe what I heard! All I can say is I have a completely new appreciation for the beauty in the spoken word. It is such a powerful thing. And for those talented enough to express the wonder and passion of life through words, I say hear hear!!
 

THE FEATURE FILM

 

 
In reflection of their day there were just sooo many highlights and personal moments that Chris and Lindsay chose to include and experience throughout their day. It was a mix of Tennis Ball Gifts – Perfect 2pm Timing – Maddy the Dog – Love Letters – Ellie Goulding Tickets – Rev. Joan Hamilton – Ice Cream on the Beach – Big Red Bus – Olive Oil Tour – Poetry Poetry Poetry – Epic Sunset – Leave Everyone in Awe Speech – First Dance. {breathe}

It was just the coolest day to be able to capture in both film and photographs. Chris and Lindsay, you guys rock! (In a really poetic way!)

Chris’s epic gift giving abilities extended to his groomsmen as well, and they each received a custom….. ukelele. Of course.

Chris and Lindsay wanted their guests to be well entertained while we were whisking them away for some photos, so they had organised an olive oil tasting. Their guests (and our wonderful photographer Holly) jumped aboard the vintage double decker bus (a nod to Lindsay’s UK heritage) and headed away. The ironic part is … while it’s their favourite olive oil… they’ve never actually done the tour / tasting themselves! So they have something still on the ‘to-do’ list next time they’re on Waiheke!

Meanwhile, we took Chris, Lindsay, and their bridal party on our own little tour of the island…

By this point, we were starting to feel the heat of the day – so of course the obvious soloution was to stop off at the local dairy for an ice cream!

Now this was the moment that we realised that Chris and Lindsay’s wedding was actually magical… with Mudbrick’s beautiful views back over the city, we had been crossing our fingers and toes for a sunset of some description. What we were treated to was one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen. So stunning in fact, that Chris and Lindsay raced from their chairs just as the speeches were about to start to sneak in these last few photos.
