Rachel & Chris {Married} Part 1

It’s Rachel and Chris’ big day. The 28th of September was here. Every beautiful detail had been completed. The dress had been picked up and looked immaculate. The flowers looked devine. And everyone looked dashing in the chosen attire. Months and months of planning had come together wonderfully. And 4 Years after nabbing the ‘hot student teacher’ from the school they worked at… Rachel can finally call Chris her hubbbbby!

After seeing them in Wellington for their very wet engagement shoot a few months ago, it was amazing to capture their wedding day on this rather chilly, but completely dry day. :)

After many years of driving up this road… this was literally the first time I’d noticed the steeple from the road. Silly me.

Little William has the important task of making sure the rings get to the front of the chapel!  He’s the man for the job!

The moment he catches a glimpse of his bride. You can almost see the oxygen evaporate from his chest completely.
