Chris & Dairne’s Southwell wedding photos – sneak peek!

Hi guys,

Today we had the pleasure of photographing Chris & Dairne’s wedding at Southwell School in Hamilton.

We began the day with the boys’ getting ready shots – and at the same time got some cool photos of their little puppy, Wally, having a wash – soggy dog = cute!

Then it was off to Dairne’s place, where we played around with some moody lighting to get some gorgeous bridal portraits.

Their ceremony, officiated by Brian Carey (whose daughter’s wedding we photographed a while back) was beautiful – some lovely readings, and very intimate – plus a stunning setting & great light!

The ceremony began with flowergirl Kathryn ringing the bells – I love the shot of her swinging on the rope!

Afterwards, we got some great shots with Wally the dog – and then some beautiful photos around the Southwell grounds with them and the bridal party. There is a Kahikatea grove, which had perfect light for some nice intimate shots, and we finished up around the chapel itself.

It was a fantastic wedding – congratulations to you both šŸ™‚

Enjoy this little sneak peek!
