Tauranga Wedding Photography, The Luv Boat II

Caitlin & Brenton {Married} Part 1

They worked together. Caitlin had just made the move from Tauranga to Melbourne. Australian born Brenton took one look at her and knew she was worth pursuing. The first attempt failed. But the 2nd attempt was so much more cunning, and I mean cunning in quite the romantic way!
There was a work do to be. An over night work do that technically everyone was paying for themselves. Caitlin didn’t want to go but Brenton couldn’t have that! So he may have fabricated the truth a bit and convinced Caitlin that it was all free and everything was paid for by the company… meanwhile he actually paid for everything for Caitlin himself. His secret agent moves got Caitlin on the work do road trip and they spent the entire way there chewing each others ears off as if they’d been friends for years. Yip, true love can come that easy!

This wedding was ultra special for me. It was a close family affair, a family I love to absolute pieces. Set in the property of the family home, a place my friends grew up, and the place I’ve been visiting for years. We got to spend the night with the bride to be and we were there helping with all that last minute prep during the wedding morning where normally I’d probably be lying in bed.

Over at 301 Ohauti Road. The family home of the McMurtie’s is looking devine. Tony and Anne have spent the last 6 months transforming their back yard into the beautiful place it is today. All for their youngest daughter to marry her love. The hard work paid off, the rain stayed away and a magical day was to be had.

The coolest cat in town. Brent was far from nervous. He took every moment in his stride and enjoyed every second of it!
