We jumped in the car, coffee in the belly and headed 2 and half hours south to Jane’s family farm in the MacKenzie Country! The day was hot, hot, hot, which worked favorably for the ceremony being held on the top of a hill on the farm. A little red chopper was the transport for a good portion of the day, which saw most of the dry MacKenzie valleys and beautiful Lake Tekapo from the air. Witnessing Athol taking deep breaths, prepping himself for Jane’s arrival was endearing and not to mention the way they laughed with each other alllll day long. Gah, so so gooood!!
I sound like a broken record sometimes as I state over and over and over again how awesome it is being a wedding photographer…. but seriously… it’s soooo awesome! Because we get to witness time and time again the most special relationships and all the joy that is knitted and weaved into it. Jane and Athol have a beautiful friendship together, cheeky senses of humour and gorgeous thoughtful hearts! It was fun, hilarious and down right amazing capturing their wedding day!! … Here it is!!
Legend Jane is both beautiful and practical and a farm girl through and through…. check out her brilliant red wedding shoes!!! ;-) Looove!
Maid of Honour, Hilary was movin and groovin with everyone all day! … This ol fella got the first dance!!
Half an hour away in Fairlie, Doug’s hanging with Athol and his men!

Ready to take Athol’s breath away!!
The road up to the ceremony site… Hello Mr Moo cows!
Us humans are so teeny tiny in the scheme of things! We can see the ceremony site so teeny tiny on the top of the hill in the valley! Jane doesn’t need a car to get to the wedding when she has a cute wee red chopper to escort her, courtesy of friends!
The moment of truth!
The clouds were so fluffy and beautiful as Jane and Athol said their vows!
How adorable are Jane and Athol’s niece and nephew! The page boy and flower girl!
This archway was built especially for the wedding! I love that!
Jane and Athol, we had such a spectacular day with you both! The love and excited energy was evident from beginning to end! It was a beautiful atmosphere to be in! Congratulations once again to you both!! You’re amazing!!
Love Heather & Doug xoxo
