The sun shone brightly for Dana and Jade’s special day. We met Dana and her girls at her Masterton home for the getting ready photos. It was a fun, relaxed atmosphere – the flowers girls (one being Dana and Jade’s daught), were super cute. Being car enthusiasts it was fitting that wheels played a big part for their wedding.

The bride arrived in style in a classic car for their ceremony under the hills in Carterton. Jason and Hailey’s property was perfectly set up for a ceremony – they’d held their own their just weeks prior!

Mt Holdsworth was a fabulous location for bridal party photos. Managed by Department of Conservation, it had luscious bush backdrops – like candy for my nature loving self. The river was a little hard to access but we got there with a little adventure down a bank. On the way home we stopped off at Carterton’s historic band rotunda for a few more quick snaps.

Dana and Jade’s reception was held in their backyard – they’d gone to a lot of effort to decorate their garage and their grazing table looked fabulous. A true, casual kiwi style event which was filled with love and laughter.
