Nikki & Sean Wedding, Axes and a Bit of Rustic

One of the things I love doing for bridal photos is to get in the car and go on a tiki tour, driving the car around, and stopping as and when we see something inspirational.

The story of Nikki and Sean’s wedding lends itself to a bit of an outdoorsy, farm feel so I was on the lookout for anywhere spontaneous that had a rustic, untouched look. On our tiki tour around the bays in Wellington we pulled over and found somewhere just north of the Defense Center area. Long grass, tree stumps, tall pines and the low sun helped us capture what I was after.

They held the ceremony and reception at the Boat Shed, a popular venue on Wellington’s waterfront.

One thing I have noticed more and more at weddings recently, lollies!! Lolly buffets are becoming very popular! These guys didn’t have one of those but they took it one step further and had big glass buckets full of them on each table. Sweet! Thanks guys for an amazing day!
