Craig and Justine were married just a few hundred metres from the spot they first met – on the slopes of Maungatautari.
Their intimate wedding could not have been more perfectly suited to them – chilled and relaxed – they took everything in their stride.
We had planned to go for a walk in the morning, so when we awoke to the sound of rain, my heart sunk a little and I wondered if they would still be keen to persevere. I don’t think it even crossed their minds for a moment that the rain would spoil their plans and off we went – rain coats and all!

Justine had been a volunteer up on the mountain, so we were given a VIP access up to the best spots and a lift up in the most bad-ass van.
They opted for a “first-look” so they could spend the afternoon with their guests. I think their groomsmen got the most emotional of all 😉
Their ceremony was perfectly ‘them’ – It was officiated by family and attended by all four of their grandmothers which made it all the more special.

Craig and Justine (and your entire crew!) thank you for being such amazing hosts and inviting us to be a part of your wedding day.
Enjoy this sneak peek!
