What an amazing wedding this was! We began the day capturing Rachel getting ready in the modern Ava Lodge Motel – I was really impressed with this accommodation. Rachel chose to have two flower girls instead of the traditional bridesmaids. They all looked beautiful when it was time to depart for the ceremony.
A huge stretch limousine collected the girls from the motel. On went the disco lights and the music and it was a dance fest on the journey into Wellington city. We drove right onto Queens Wharf and up to the helicopter. It was an incredible flight provided by Wellington Helicopters over the stunning harbour as we made our way Pencarrow Lodge where David and the wedding guests were waiting.
The ceremony was held under beautiful sunny skies with a gentle breeze. It was a lovely touch to have Rachel’s Grandad sign as her witness on the wedding register. Pencarrow Lodge gave us a wonderful variety of backdrops for the bridal photos – we had a little woodland area, vineyard, coastal views and of course the rugged beach coastline.
