I love brides. Love 'em. So what could possibly be better on a wedding day than to have two of them to photograph? I joined Rachel and Anke at The Crown Hotel in Ahuriri as they helped each other get ready for their wedding at The Old Church, Meeanee. It was a glorious blue-sky summer day so we made our way to the venue via the beach at Perfume point and some historic art deco buildings. Delish.Every wedding is special, but after waiting a very long time to have a legally-recognised gay marriage in New Zealand, Rachel & Anke's day was perhaps just that little bit more special than the husband/wife variety. And with two smokin' hot wives...perhaps it was a little bit more beautiful too!
