I do love winter weddings I must admit. While it is normally freezing cold, but the winter does bring such a different atmosphere to the wedding images, and its always good to be different.
I had the pleasure to celebrate the wedding of Tara and Dylan that was held at Wharerata, a Palmerston North wedding venue. I always love capturing weddings at this wedding venue, as it is only a few minutes drive from home. It is always nice after a long, but fun, day of work, and able to get home quickly and rest and relax.
Dylan had his 3 brothers as groomsmen and his uncle as his best man. It is always nice to see such close family bonds at weddings. Lots of love and laughter, which is always fun to be a part of.
For their wedding theme and decoration, I loved the casual and relaxing nature of the setup, as well as many small and personal touches that were spread around the ground and the reception room.
The ambience perfectly set up the hilarious succession of speeches that drew constant laughter from everyone in the room. It's always hard to focus on the wedding photography when I am constantly laughing as well and enjoying all the personal stories.
I hope you can see from these images the love, the laughter, the joy, that Tara and Dylan have with each other, all the time. Weddings should definitely be like this, a big day of celebration.
