"What light is to the eyes, love is to the heart."

As wonderful as it has been getting to travel across the country and overseas with this job there is something rather magical about getting to shoot a wedding in your home town where the location is this beautiful and then that same night getting to sleep in your own bed too! Gabrielle and Will searched high and low for a breathtaking location that also catered to their good taste in architecture and Will’s mother suggested Parihoa and they did not hesitate to go ahead booking their wedding there, and what a perfect spot it was. I loved everything about this day but one element I found particularly special was the way they incorporated Gabrielle’s Maori heritage throughout the day within the readings and blessings, something that is so unique to New Zealand and honouring of our country’s culture , a beautiful sight.
Enjoy their story.
