Highwic historic house-museum winter wedding {Auckland NZ lifestyle weddings photographer} Sherrie & Simon

Sherrie & Simon celebrated their special day in Highwic {historic house in Epsom-Newmarket, Auckland NZ} in the middle of the winter. Couple fly over from Australia where they living to organise their wedding in New Zealand, as all groom's family lives mainly in Auckland. As a lifestyle wedding photographer I captured a lot of beautiful weddings with many amazing moments, but I never been in such a special venue having so much heritage and special atmosphere in each room. Love it! Ceremony near fireplace and beautiful piano, wooden walls and candles around, unforgettable memories and so many photo opportunities around!

Sherrie & Simon have really unusual story of proposal, I never heard anything like this, original as a couple: "We had been excitedly discussing the prospect of getting engaged for a month or so. Simon was in his second week of travelling Europe of a 4 month trip. I awoke one morning to find that he had changed our relationship status on Facebook to engaged, a flood of congratulatory comments and β€œlikes” had already found the event before I had. I was shocked but giggling with excitement. Our haphazard engagement reinforced our resolve and brought much needed comfort to me in times the distance was nearly too much to bear."

Simon was really excited to see all his friends and family in New Zealand and celebrate this wedding day in warm and cosy atmosphere with around 45 guests sharing their love and feelings. Sherrie  had a hands full to organise everything from overseas! Its might be so overwhelming! 

We spent amazing time with couple taking pictures after the ceremony around the historic museum, having ride in retro car to Cornwall park nearby and also had a sneak from reception at Billiards House and taking some night shots under the big tree {as Sherrie shared with me how much she loves forestry atmosphere and would love to have stunning photographs near the trees}. I loved to create something beautiful for this amazing couple.

Thank you for sharing with me so special moments! Happy future together!
