Jen & Tom’s wedding was a bit like a fairytale, they had the dream team, on a perfect summer day at the best wedding venue on the Kapiti Coast, Sudbury. All of those elements made for a hugely memorable day followed by an epic evening.
What I loved the most about Jenn and Tom’s wedding was that they made it their own. Instead of just following the rules they decided to be a little different and create their own schedule, and they thought what better way to do this then having a first dance in the afternoon before everyone sat down for dinner. It sounds a little unconventional at first, but all the guests had great fun on the dance floor and it was the perfect pick-me-up before sitting down for main meals and speeches.
The other thing that made their day visual feast was the golden light at sunset that we were able to capture with the couple. They had planned in advance to take a stroll with the photographer and I around sunset, which happened to coincide with them finishing their main meals. Being a little bit biased, I think that was the best decision they could have made in order to capture some stunning shots in the golden light and when you’re at Sudbury you don’t have to go far to come across some fantastic photo locations, it’s something that I encourage every couple to do at their wedding if the weather is right.
