Getting hitched outside the box - Black Barn Market wedding


There's a wish-list most couples have when it comes to the perfect Hawke's Bay wedding. But dreams are sometimes hard to transform to reality, so I was absolutely stoked with the way Sam and Gareth's Black Barn Market wedding in Havelock North finally came together. Simple, fun, stylish, unique and affordable were all words they shared with me at our planning meeting. Thanks to some original thinking and a tight little team of awesome Hawke's Bay wedding professionals, they nailed all of their goals.

Photography was a priority for Sam and Gareth, and they stressed to me how important it was that their images were candid, unposed and full of the sense of relaxed fun their day was all about. They had come to the right place because that's how we roll. And fortunately as a couple they were able to let go of the reins, forget we were there and trust us to be capturing the things that mattered. Our shooting was fluid and doco-style so when these two look back at their photos they remember how they felt, not just how they looked.
