Popping over to New Zealand – this time for a crack at being a Nelson wedding photographer – is always a treat. A distant treat, but treat nonetheless.
Our first brush with New Zealand was photographing the lovely Danelle Bohane’s wedding. Check out Danelle and Dirk’s wedding to see how that all shook down, and you’ll get a sense why we’re always longing to return.
A few years later and we were lucky enough to land our feet near Nelson on the South Island.
Nelson Wedding Photographer
Indigo and Kurt’s wedding was hosted at the Foxhill Rutherford Memorial Hall. When we asked them to describe the day in three words, they said: Adventurous, Warmhearted, Kinship.
This description by the two summed it up nicely as well:
The wedding day description doesn’t need words, the photos tell more than I could ever explain. But what should be noted is the lead up to the wedding was everything from wild storms destroying accommodation, to lost cakes with airlines, to a 50 ft tree falling down the isle. These moments were exactly where the magic came from. It was in the aftermath of each challenge, there would be some nervous laughter and then we would watch our family and friends roll up sleeves, start chainsaws, pickup phones and work through the wee hours to help make the most beautiful day dedicated to our love. – Indigo & Kurt
Mountains & Forest
To photograph a ceremony in lush forests can be chalked up as a good day. Follow that up with a chopper ride into the mountains of New Zealand for portraits? Surreal.
Here’s the story of Indigo and Kurt from just outside Nelson, New Zealand.
