A love ballad to the wedding veil & Wellington's glorious wind!

To celebrate me having a totally empty editing pile for the first time in months, and to ease me into the two years of blogging backlog I now have no excuse not to make a start on, here is a blog post that's been an idea nugget in my head for a while. THE VEIL. Endless drama, lols, and frustrated veil wrangling has ensued. Many a veil has been discarded, stuffed into a bridesmaids purse. Sometimes the wind has not come to the party and I have employed a member of the bridal party to 'be the wind' as I like to put it. Whatever traditional use a veil once had has long been surpassed by it's use as a wedding fashion statement, combined with the windiest city in the world, it is a brave choice for a bride to make.

Enjoy!

Alice & Alex | Wairarapa, Lake Ferry Wedding

Alice & Alex. Married on a grey day in the Wairarapa, these guys braved the great expanse of wild and windy beach at Lake Ferry for some wonderfully moody portraits. You could say the kids stole the show at this one! Big thanks to Jenn, who took a heap of these photos.

Amy & Campbell | Tarureka Estate, Wairarapa Wedding

Amy & Campbell got married in February 2016. (I'm shabby at blogging :/)  Here is the start of their truly, magically, happily married ever after story. A blazing hot day in the Wairarapa, a very fun garden party, quick pop over to an olive grove in the Kombi, back to the party. This is my idea of doing a wedding right, leaving loads of time to relax and catch up with everyone. Keep that bridal party shoot short and sweet! Award for best hugger 2016 goes to Amy. Huge thanks to Melissa Maguire who took a bunch of these photos. #twoeyesontheprize
