Anne-Marie & Stan | Rustic Farm Wedding Photography | New Zealand

Ann-Marie and Stan were married in a cute little community church before heading out to the groom’s parent’s farm in Whiteman’s Valley, not far out of Wellington. Well, not far in the actual sense of distance, but a world away in terms of the pure rustic beauty of the place. They had a wonderful marquee set up and every detail had been lovingly taken care of.

On the way to the reception venue, we stopped at an gorgeous private estate (used under arrangement with the owners) which was an absolute photographer’s dream. It was green, lush and huge, with a million features for us to take advantage of. Not that these two needed any dressing up of course! They both looked truly spectacular.

Thanks, guys, for letting me be part of it all!
