New Zealand Wedding Photography // Danelle & Dirk

August 19, 2013

Danelle and Dirk knew what they wanted: an intimate celebration in a beautiful location. And Danelle – being a New Zealand based wedding photographer herself – had her heart set on a day a little bit outside the norm. Something closer to a large, cozy family dinner, than the traditional New Zealand wedding.

They decided to get married at Poronui, close to the city of Taupo on the north island of New Zealand, and got exactly what they wanted. An intimate, beautiful winter day with their closest friends and family, and a celebration perfectly suited for their personalities.

  74. Lindo do início ao fim | Casarei

    […] É tão difícil achar um casamento que a gente goste por completo, que quando achamos os olhos brilham!!! Esse casamento das fotos, que aconteceu na Nova Zelândia, foi perfeito…. A decoração com samambaias (que adorei), o vestido da noiva (que não tem nada de muito especial, mas é lindo!!!!), a iluminação com velas (super romântica)…. E até mesmo a decoração da cerimônia a céu aberto!!!!! Para quem quiser ver mais fotos desse casamento, basta clicar aqui. […]

  75. Cam Grove

    Wow, and I always thought of the North Island as the South Island's ugly sister! Those bridal portraits are beyond stunning - beautiful work as always!
