Jaimee & Nicol - Markovina Vineyard Estate, Kumeu

The first wedding of the season is normally one of mixed emotions for a wedding photographer. I swing precariously between absolute excitement at getting to experience more beautiful weddings, meet new couples and do what genuinely makes me happy - photograph people and their gorgeous weddings; and extreme nerves - what if I have totally forgotten how to use my camera?!!

Luckily, Jaimee & Nicols wedding was the kind of dreamy, relaxed vineyard wedding that you can't help falling in love with.  It took place at Markovina Vineyard Estate, which is just the most stunning backdrop to any wedding day.  

As Jaimee walked down the aisle to meet her handsome hubby-to-be there wasn't a dry eye in the audience (including mine!)  Their vows were personal and beautiful and the reading was my favourite ever - a piece by Bob Marley, that is so perfect I am leaving it here for you all to enjoy

He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect.
But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can.
He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break.
Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give.
Don’t analyze.
Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there.
Love hard when there is love to be had.
Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you.
— Bob Marley
