Tauherenikau Racecourse

Debbie had been and gone, then old El Cap Cook decided he'd give us a splash. New Zealand weather, bloody ripper ain't it! But that didn't stop my old mate Pearce (no his dad Tim isn't his younger brother) and his stunning bride Kate from saying the I do's

They married on her parents Olive Grove in Martinborough in front of a wicked bunch of friends and family and a couple of Australians. We even managed to get the first look and the ceremony done outside between the buckets of rain! Then they roasted and danced the night away at Tauherenikau Racecourse in Featherston.

Quick few frames of them first look feels in Jocks backyard, so good!

Wrapped in a little family history - Karl + Joanna, wrapped in Joanna's great Grandmothers veil, those real feels!

Sometimes you just got to get shit done. That's what Karl + Joanna did, on the way to help clean up from the previous nights wedding they decided to just go ahead with their wedding. They asked if the venue was free, tick, then they asked me, tick. Couple months later and some awesome prep, these two potters said I do!
