Summer and Ben’s wedding Day started out as usual, I was all kit up and excited to shoot this gorgeous couples big day at a gorgeous location- Lake Tekapo.
After hitting the road early-to leave plenty of time before I started shooting in case of a delay….nothing prepared me for what actually happened …..a big ditch+car=a cracked oil sump- Thankfully-a mechanic was 2kms away and could have it fixed the next day! Great..!! Not only that this amazing mechanic lent his own vehicle so I would get to Tekapo in time…no hesitation! What a bloody legend!
I started at the Peppers Bluewater Resort, where Summer and her girls were getting ready…With the amazing Chrystal on (makeup https://www.facebook.com/ChrystalOBrienMakeUpArtist?fref=ts)
The time came to leave…and the wind came too. Turns out, the same day the South island got hit with the worst storm in 40 years! The veil even went flying as we arrived at the Church of the good Shepard. The ceremony was beautiful and intimate.
The weather was wild and fortunately the back up venue for photos ‘Aldourie Lodge’ was gorgeous!
Ben and Summer, anyone can see how much you love each other and were meant to be! I wish you a long and happy life together!
(I eventually made it home, after an impromptu stay in Tekapo and a small delay in fixing the car lol! )
