Pip and Joel married on the grounds of Mincher Gardens in Coatesville. Friends and family were all involved in making this day happen, and with their two children and dog Rico as part of the bridal party, it was obvious that family was the top priority of the day. I always love it when children are involved in a wedding, but when little Harlem decided that he would like to remain on mum’s hip for the duration of the ceremony, and help put both of their rings on, the cute factor just got way too high.
Afterwards guests were invited to take a stroll around the gardens with their glass of wine, or laze around on the lawn enjoying the beautiful surrounds and nibbles. While we took our photographs onsite, the guests piled onto a double decker bus and headed for the reception in Auckland City, and conveniently with a classic Chevy Impala booked as a surprise for the couple, we were there not long after them!
Thank you Pip and Joel for having us be a part of your gorgeous day, everything was just such a treat to photograph.
