Pauanui Lodge wedding // Justin and Lauren

I love these people. Lauren has very stylish hair. My followers keep saying how awesome she looked on her wedding day. Champagne in the morning, red lipstick, her granny’s pearl jewellery, a big smile on her face…

Justin and Lauren are a very happy couple. It was so easy to take their photos when their happiness was flowing out of them. The wedding location was outstanding. It looked a bit like a fairytale with those old trees in the background. That day's weather forecast was predicting rain all day, but somehow the universe sent us a moment of no rain exactly when the ceremony was planned and the newly married couple went for their photoshoot. I was so happy to capture the colours you get on rainy days without actually getting wet.

Despite her high heels, Lauren was excited to climb the stony hill and walk on the slippery roads. Justin was always there to help her and hold her hand. We went up the hill to look for the fog, and we found it floating above the mountain tops. Perfect background for a perfect photoshoot.

They will have a very bright and happy future, I can tell!
