Phil & Heidi’s Mangawhai Heads wedding photos – sneak peek!

Hi guys,

On Saturday we made the trip up to Mangawhai Heads to photograph Phil & Heidi’s wedding.

We arrived to a gorgeous, sunny day – perfect for a beach wedding! They had hired a bach, and with the guys downstairs & girl upstairs, it made the getting ready shots nice & easy – all in one location!

While photographing the boys getting ready, the groomsmen spied an empty bath & decided they wanted to do a “Cool Runnings” photo – awesome!
Having such an easy to work with bridal party always makes for great shots!

After their beach ceremony, we headed down to the rocks at the end of the bay, where we got some great dramatic shots as the clouds rolled in – and then finished up by the old green boat shed, which gave a neat texture as a background.

We headed back to their reception at Milestone Cottages, where they had a marquee set up, and the band was soundchecking & getting ready to roll!
A few more quick shots in the gardens there, and we left them to it 🙂

We went for fish & chips with Amber’s aunty in Mangawhai – and on our way back home, we stuck our heads into the reception again – and managed to get a some great sunset photos!

It was a fantastic day – enjoy this little sneak peek of what’s to come!
