Chloe & Tom - Garden Wedding, Matakana

When I met Chloe & Tom back in March, for their beach engagement session, I knew straight away that theirs was going to be a great wedding to photograph!  They are such a fun couple and had a wonderful  laid back attitude to their wedding, and this came through in the style of the day, from start to finish!

The wedding venue was outside Chloe & Toms home, overlooking Matakana and beyond to the sea.  The ceremony was held under a gorgeous arch, made by one of their friends, and decorated with wild flowers by the amazing ladies at Twig & Bloom, Matakana.

After the beautiful ceremony, we drove in a convoy of cars and quad bikes up to the hill above their home, for Bridal Party photos, beers and a lot of laughs.  And then it was time to party... and these guys know how to throw one!! I wish I had been there to capture some of the post 9pm shenanigans, but maybe they are better left as a hazy memory!!

Chloe & Tom... it was such a pleasure to capture your gorgeous day.  You showed that weddings in your backyard can be as unique and beautiful as you want to make them, and the love and laughter from all your guests was a joy to photograph.  I hope you enjoy looking back on these photos for years to come, and always remember the fun day you had!! x
