Emma & Ben {Married} Part 1

The first wedding of 2014 was here … and the first couple of the New Year are the awesome, fun loving Emma and Ben.
On January 3rd, Hanmer Springs produced a beaaautiful summer’s day (despite the downpour early that morning) . Ben and Emma had travelled from mighty Invercargill for their wedding with guests coming from all over! It was going to be an amazing day and we were so stoked to be there…..
