Bridget & Nick

Rustic Backyard Festival Wedding – Pukerua Bay, Wellington

Who says a wedding dress needs to be white?

Who says it needs to be a dress at all?

Bridget & Nick’s rustic wedding was a backyard festival wedding of the very best kind – at Bridget’s parent’s house in Pukerua Bay, Wellington.

There was food truck deliciousness, live band raucousness, and majestic sunset goodness.

Yep, a festival in the backyard. How everyone should get married in 2020.

Chloe & Carter

Whitemans Valley

Chloe & Carter were married, in the middle of winter, on Chloe’s family farm in Whiteman’s Valley.

No *ahem* fake wedding barn here – this was an authentic, working, careful-where-you-stand, sheep shearing shed.

Chloe’s family are renowned for their infamous Whitemans Valley parties, and this evening was no exception.

Congrats Chloe & Carter!
