Tom + Katie

“Though I am old with wandering

Through hollow lands and hilly lands,

I will find out where she has gone,

And kiss her lips and take her hands;

And walk among long dappled grass,

And pluck till time and times are done

The silver apples of the moon,  

The golden apples of the sun.”

William Butler Yeats

Tom and Katie’s wedding was in such a stunning location in Hahei.  They are such a beautiful couple, and gosh, they had an incredibly good looking bridal party. Tom and Katie are really sweet people.  They had a beautiful intimate wedding with around 60 guests and the reception held at a lovely café in Hot Water Beach.  I don’t often photograph small ceremonies like this very often, but when they come along, they are always just so wonderful to be a part of.  I felt like we were really a part of it.

Tom and Katie, you have a love like no other! Cherish it, and savour it.  Thank you for inviting me to be a part of your special moment.

 

Graeme & Welmoet

“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight For the ends of Being and ideal Grace. I love thee to the level of everyday’s Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light. I love thee freely, as men strive for Right; I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise. I love thee with the passion put to use in my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith. I love thee with a love I seemed to lose With my lost saints,—I love thee with the breath, Smiles, tears, of all my life!—and, if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death.”

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

This wedding was at the stunning and unique Kuranui Lodge, Tirau in the heart of the South Waikato

Welmoet and Graeme, what a wonderful day on that hot, hot February day.  Photographing your wedding, filled with joy with loved ones, was one of the best ways a girl can spend her birthday!  Thank you so much!

P.s I wish I could have shared all of these, although I think scrolling through 400 + of these could take a wee while!

Denise - Beautiful as always Delia! Just gorgeous!
