Dean and Julie’s big day was a particularly emotional one.
After the wedding ceremony, we made our way to the stunning Bethells Beach for some fun and creative photos with the wedding party. With a bit of walking and dunes climbing action, we arrived at some of the spots I had scouted out a few days prior and everyone was extremely into it! Before this I was told that the bride and groom were going to be welcomed back to the reception with a Haka performance by some of the guests. It was when I got back to the venue and actually saw everyone all lined up getting ready for the couple’s arrival, that I knew it was going to be a huge moment.
At the end of the thunderous performance, Dean and Julie showed their appreciation by acknowledging each and every one of the friends and family who participated in the Haka, and the guests were all incredibly impressed.
The people truly made the day extra special.
Here’s a snippet of how the special day unfolded!
