Nicole & John {Married} Part 1

Nicole and John’s wedding has been highly anticipated. From the moment we first met with them 1 year ago… to the engagement shoot that took place twice over one week back in February. (Got them in the water twice too -yee yah!) ..It seemed a million years away before November 16th would rock around. But here it is… The day they’d both been so eagerly awaiting after knowing each other for 14 years.

Nicole and John compliment each other perfectly. Both so incredibly down to earth, Nicole is the super organised one and John just happily goes with the flow. Nicole calls herself a bit OCD. I’m not sure I agreed with that when she was  pretty laid back about leaving for the ceremony (leaving poor John waiting 15 minutes hehe) … but then she raised her eye brows at me when I asked her to stand in a slightly mucky spot. haha At least it wasn’t the ocean this time eh Nicole! ;-)
They both have a huge passion for travel. But mostly… each other.

We simply couldn’t wait to capture the wedding day of this special couple!

The suits stayed off as long as possible. I’m pretty sure today was the hottest day in November at 27 degrees. (That’s good for Christchurch – just so you know! ;-) )
