Elyse and Aaron’s Grandview Gardens wedding

Elyse and Aaron’s Grandview Gardens wedding

 

It's always such a pleasure to photograph the wedding of someone you've known and admired for years...I first met Elyse when she would have been around 16 or so, after I became friends with her big sis at high school (the lovely Amber, still a great friend of mine and her daughter, Layla, is even my daughters bestie!). I still remember that big beaming smile from way back then, so to be asked to head down to Dunedin shoot her wedding to Aaron was awesome...
I knew I was in for a happy day!

Aaron and Elyse are ridiculously cute together. These two are the bright shiny light in each other's lives so it was a pleasure to work with them...the looks they share in some of the following photos are pretty darn cute, if I do say so myself! Throw in some amazing and beeeeautiful bridesmaids, hilarious groomsmen and Amber and James' gorgeous wee girl, Layla, as the flowergirl and you've got yourself a winner of a day :)

Also I have to mention how much I adored their venue...Grandview Gardens is a bit of a  photographic playground -
I absolutely LOVED shooting there with the huge trees and cute rustic touches scattered around the grounds.
Dunedin brides to be should definitely check it out!

THANK YOU, Elyse and Aaron for having me down to your wedding. What an amazing day to be part of and record for you. xx
