Waitakere Estate - West Auckland wedding {New Zealand weddings photographers} Susannah and Jayden

Susannah & Jayden

Our wedding season start rolling with Susannah & Jayden's wedding in Waitakere Estate {West Auckland, New Zealand}, where couple spend time with close friends and families in such picturesque surroundings. 

Jayden shared couple's love story:

"Susannah and I worked at the same company but never saw each other. One day we we're separately called into a group meeting, once Susannah started talking I was mesmerised. A few months later I moved onto the same floor and kept saying hello, eventually she said hello back and the rest is history." I love how was made a proposal: "I proposed as per Indian tradition; I asked her father for permission, then took Susannah to India to share the celebration with her family."

It was amazing wedding with beautiful and romantic atmosphere, full of positive moments, laugh and relaxed atmosphere.

Such a  great start of the season!

Landsendt Tropical Garden - Waitakere Estate {Auckland wedding photographer} Maria and Ben

What a great wedding I been capturing in Landsendt Tropical Garden {Oratia, Auckland}! 

Maria & Ben just amazing couple, shared such a special moments with their friends and family in this cosy tropical garden venue.

Maria told me interesting story of their relationship: "Ben and I originally met when we were teenagers. We re-kindled our love 5 years after this. Ben proposed to me in Malta; the country where my family originally migrated from. He took me by surprise when he proposed to me at a beautiful place called the Blue Lagoon; the most beautiful place on earth". It's such a special memories!

Not surprising this couple chose so beautiful venue what reminded them of tropical islands where Ben originally from {Tonga} and created such a beautiful backdrop for their special event.

Day started for me at boy's getting ready at Waitakere Estate, there was a lot of fun and full of jokes atmosphere. Ben get special hair cut by barber who arrived on location to do this special event. What a great thought!

Maria with her 3 bridesmaids stayed at Kaurilands Estate, where I drove right after boys. It's not unusual for me to drive around between few locations on the wedding day, but of course can take a lot of power :) Thats why always good to book second shooter on the wedding day ;)

Maria is so gorgeous, just amazing bride! I really enjoyed take a pictures with lifestyle moments, having make-up on, bridesmaids dancing (they been doing rehearsal for reception dance later on), getting ready moments and pictures with family arrived (mum, dad and brother who come all way down from England).

Then time to head to ceremony site at Landsendt, meet all families and friends. Ben been wear traditional pacific clothes with grass mat. Couple been also exchanging their vows standing on the traditional mat. What a great incorporating Tonga's culture and traditions!

We had beautiful opportunities to get a lot of brida and groom intimate shots around the gardens, pictures turned just amazing! We had so much romantic and fun moments, natural and traditional shots.

Reception just was full of laugh and so special moments with speeches, cake cutting and of course first dance. It's just unforgettable memories!

Thank you so much guys for inviting me and sharing so special for you moments!

Happy future together!
