Gosh. Where do I even start. When Lucinda enquired with me, I was so glad to have their day free. Their wedding sounded amazing, and as time went by, it was gorgeous seeing their plans finalise. Suddenly, the day was upon us.
It was clear to me that Lucinda and Dylan's number one priority was family. They just wanted to get married with their nearest and dearest by their sides, and that is exactly what they did.
They had stumbled across one of Taupo's gems, the tiny Oruanui Church, for their venue. At 107 years old, this church is steeped in history and meaning. Imagining all the souls that have walked in those doors was overwhelming - how amazing to get married in such a special place.
In a wonderful ceremony, conducted by a family friend, Lucinda and Dylan were married. It was beautiful to see so much love in that room.
Following the family photos, we scooted out to a spot that Dylan and Lucinda had found earlier. Now, I thought we were going for a big hike, so I whipped off my nice shoes and put on my manky old runners - only to be picked up in a flash car and delivered right to the spot. 😂 I wasn't looking very fancy, but it was super comfy and very functional.
We made photographs in a magical forest, photographs that their three gorgeous children, and perhaps one day, their grandchildren, will hold. It is such an honour to be chosen to document a wedding, and it's one I will never take for granted.
