Ian & Amber's Tangiaro Kiwi lodge wedding Port Charles, Coromandel
One of the wonderful things about living in New Zealand is the rain forest and native bush we have on the door step, a down side is the amount of rain and unpredictability of the weather patterns. Ian and Amber had found a dream venue to get married at with a ceremony site where you walked through the bush to a clearing with a pristine stream that lazily wandered away into the distance. The most perfect setting !! The day before dawned hot, bright and sunny and had everyone dashing for the sunblock and shade , so you can imagine the surprise when on the day of the wedding we all woke to dark moody skies and heavy rain. A few quick changes and the ceremony was moved indoors. This didn’t stop Ian and Amber having the most amazing day and dream wedding, surrounded by friends and family and us all heading down to Sandy bay where we met a local sea lion bathing, and getting some fun captures on the beach with the bride and groom, and bridal party and Amber’s beloved land rover !!
Then we headed back to the lodge wet and soggy but having had the best time on the beach for some really scrumptious food and some music from an epic band and epic dancing !!!
