People have been asking for months when I was going to get around to blogging this wedding, and the day has finally arrived. You see, this one is a bit extra special for a few reasons. First of all, it was my first New Zealand wedding…Queenstown to be precise. Then, there’s the fact that Darren & Dacqmar are great friends of ours. But also, my hubby was the best man.
We spent a week at Shambala, a gorgeous house up on the hill overlooking all of Queenstown. Every morning we woke to see the tops of the mountains covered in more and more snow.
I love it when brides throw convention completely out of the window when choosing their details and accessories.
Amanda from Wedding Hair Queenstown did such an incredible job on Dax’s hair (and all the girls for that matter).
In the few days leading up to the wedding, Dax’s dad would tear up any time he thought about it. When he saw her for the first time, his eyes nearly popped out of his head, and overcome with emotion, he immediately turned around an walked out of the room to collect himself for a minute before coming back in.
After a lunch time reception we headed out into the cold for a few bridal party portraits, followed by a short hike higher up into the hills for some shots of the newlyweds.
Darren & Dax, I know I would have been there regardless, but I’m so honoured you chose me to capture your day with you.
