Kelly and Mark married at Tautuku, with a sweet, windy ceremony on the lawn, followed by a reception in the house/conservatory. The best part of the ceremony was when Doug (beloved dog of K&M) was released from one of the wedding cars so that he could dash up the aisle and perform ring-bearer duties. Which he did admirably. Doug is lovely!
Afterwards, the plan was for a helicopter to land on the lawn and whisk Kelly and Mark away to the end of the peninsula for photographs. Mark and his family had arranged this as a complete surprise for Kelly, and I was really excited before it was due to land. There was a delay because of the weather, so we had to keep Kelly from asking why we were hanging around. Unfortunately it couldn't land, so we tripped off in the car instead. Darn weather. It's the thought that counts though isn't it?? What a cool surprise!
This wedding was a complete labour of love. Kelly has been collecting ideas and preparing items for this day for a long time, and everything turned out beautifully. I loved the florals, the cute table tops, and the bunting on the lawn. During the afternoon downpour we hid in a shed, and then continued to the peninsula for some dramatic landscapey shots in the rain.
Loved this wedding!
Elmer is quietly ploughing through an easter egg behind me. I managed to get a whole blog post done with him in the room!
