Melissa & Nick a few frames | Otari Wilton Bush | Dowse Art Museum Wedding Photography

The Saturday was one of those days Wellingtonians dread; a southerly storm ripping through the city, tearing tree branches down, threatening big sheets of rain, but from the calm and happy look on Nick and Melissa’s face, you’d never have known it. Nick and Melissa were married at Otari Wilton Bush Reserve, a gorgeous little basin among a back drop of protected trees, hundreds of years old (one of which decided to snap under the winds right in the middle of the vows!), and again, Nick and Melissa were the picture of happiness, in their own little calm amid the crazy weather.

With so many indoor spaces closed for Christmas, the Dowse Art Museum came to the rescue, who, on seeing the awful weather, kindly let us use their gorgeous gallery to take some photos after the ceremony, before we headed to The Jetty for their reception.

    Your black and white images are so lovely… especially the one of just the bride’s bright smile peeking out. Such an awesome shot. Neat venue too….
