Lena & Darren

Lena and Darren picked a great day to get married at Settlers Country Manor in Auckland. Prior to the wedding ceremony, we took a quick detour to a nearby forest for some photos with the wedding party. Not only was everyone feeling fresher at this point, but this also meant more time for the bride and groom to mingle with guests after the ceremony.

We spent some time exploring the venue grounds for more photos, after which the wedding party did a dance-in to the reception pair by pair, all to loud cheers from the guests. One of the highlights of the night had to be Darren’s speech, as he dedicated it to Lena with a special surprise performance!

Fast forward to the evening after the wedding, the three of us met again for a post-wedding shoot and what a great decision that was. We had the perfect weather and got to do more photos without the stress of a wedding day, double win!

Here’s a little preview with more photos to follow.
