Tash and Matt live locally to me and we met through Tash’s Auntie Liz who was their celebrant! I was very happy to photograph their wedding day.

The girls got ready at a family friends house which was close to their wedding venue at Te Marua Golf Course. Tash’s sisters were fabulous bridesmaids and the nieces were the cutest flower girls! It was an emotional moment for Tash when she stepped into her gorgeous gown for the first time – a very elegant design purchased from Astra Bridal. It was fair to say that her father JD was beaming with pride when he saw how lovely his daughter looked.

The weather forecast was not looking good so the ceremony unfortunately had to be held inside. Such as shame as the planned location on the golf course with river in the background was stunning. There was a break in the weather so we were pleased to be able to get outside for the family and group photos.

We jumped in the cars and headed off to Trentham Racecourse. It was a splendid setting for bridal party photos with it’s old concrete buildings lavished draped in ivy. I was very grateful to Trentham for letting us drop in for the afternoon and certainly recommend this venue for all wedding services.

It was back to Te Marua Golf Course for the reception and dinner. The speeches were all very good and we loved watching Tash and Matt do their first dance. Enjoy a few moments from their wedding – video link below the album.
