Matt & Rhianan - Church Road Winery wedding by Eva Bradley

Church Road Winery wedding

While the rest of New Zealand was in a fizz about the imminent arrival of Cyclone Lusi, this Hawkes Bay wedding photographer was feeling pretty relaxed. For a start...we just don't do cyclones in this part of the world. Added to that, we had one of the most glorious wet weather wedding venues up our sleeve. Church Road winery in Taradale is mostly famous for its incredible wine, but holds a special place in my heart for the romantic, honey-coloured interior spaces that almost make you pray for rain on your wedding day (well, maybe not quite).The only thing Church Road needed to complete the package was a foxy guy in a suit and a mega-babe in white. Cue: Mr. & Mrs. Rieper.
