Jess Dewsnap, Wellington Wedding Photographer, enjoyed recording this lovely wedding for Neil & Emma. This will be her last wedding for a time, as she gets ready to start a family of her own...
Back in January last year, Woolf Photography participated in the North City Wedding and Bridal Expo at Te Rauparaha Arena.
Each year, visitors participate in a large competition and stand to win a fabulous wedding which includes a Wedding photography package by Woolf Photography. This year, the Winners of the Interislander Voucher Prize were Jade and Tipene.
They were announced at the end of the day, and won a voucher worth over $2900, which they decided to add to, so they chose our Pearl package (giving them 6 hours of photography coverage on the day.)
Jade and Tipene had just been on a large overseas trip and were not planning on getting married so soon, but when they won this amazing prize package, they decided to go ahead and make plans!
The wedding took place at Wellesley Park in the beautiful Akararawa Valley, where they booked out the available accommodation for their guests. Doug Mountain enjoyed the day, as the fun and energetic bridal party and Angus the bulldog put him through his paces: The ceremony and the photo-shoot took place by the river (Guests were treated to a moving Haka by Tipene’s friends and family at the end of the ceremony!)
The reception was totally family and friends oriented, with kids kayaking and swimming in the river.
There was a lot of laughter and all of the little hand-made touches really made this wedding truly special: The beautiful wedding cake and the catering were organised by friends and the lovely flowers were by Jacks Florist.
Everyone had a wonderful time. It was a beautiful wedding, and Doug and the Team at Woolf Photography wishes Jade and Tipene all the best for their life together.
