When is it sexy for a Kiwi bloke to cry? When he sees his future wife walk around the corner in a sunlit garden, on the arm of her father and about to say 'I do'. Tanya and Mal showed me and their guests what love is supposed to be at their Te Awa wedding on a bright spring afternoon. And I didn't even have to resort to my usual stack of questionable jokes to get the crew laughing during our wedding party shoot. When I got these two love birds alone it was as if the world ceased to exist for them. Made my chronicle of love beautifully easy to record. I especially loved all the vintage styling - especially the dress made by Mal's mum - who just happens to be a cinema costume maker and sourced the fabrics from her recent project, 'The Great Gatsby'.
