Innes & Carrie - The Mission Estate Winery, Hawke's Bay

The very first shot I took at Innes and Carrie's Hawke's Bay wedding pretty much set the tone for the rest of the day: Carrie was sitting cross-legged on the floor getting a massage from her Aunty. Being relaxed on your wedding day is something all brides aspire to but few can pull it off. Across town at Camp Innes, our second shooter Andrew was having an equally chilled out time helping the guys get suited up.

That didn't mean there weren't some nerves when the bride made her debut through the historic and dramatic double doors of The Mission Estate. One of my favourite moments was seeing Innes' face the moment he first saw Carrie - a memory we captured from two different angles, which was pretty cool. Sometimes a picture really does say a thousand words.
