Anne & Rico – Auckland City Wedding

Anne & Rico

Anne and Rico were married on a gorgeous day, and the day started off with so much energy as Rico and his friends showed up at the bride’s house with a ton of gifts for her and her family! It was an incredible sight and right after presenting all the gifts to Anne’s family, Rico was put through a series of challenges before he could see his wife-to-be for the first time in her stunning traditional outfit.

The wedding ceremony was held at St. Leonards Chapel on Auckland’s North Shore, and after the ceremony we made sure to have some photos around the gardens before shooting off to the Auckland Domain for the rest of the photos. Anne and Rico chose to hold their wedding reception at the Grand Harbour Restaurant right in the heart of Auckland City. To start off the celebrations there was an amazing lion dance performance followed by a number of emotional speeches from family and friends.

Guests were treated to a number of wonderful dishes and we capped off the night with toasts at each of the tables. Thank you guys so much for trusting me to document such a special day, here’s a preview with more photos to come!
