Julie & Andrew’s ceremony and reception were held at the Larcomb Vineyard, near Rolleston in Christchurch. It’s a lovely venue and a photographer’s dream as it has an excellent variety of places to take photographs: the vineyard, a cool red barn, and some beautiful brickwork in the reception building.
As one of many unique touches to their day, Julie & Andrew chose to have their gorgeous dog Marley as their ringbearer – a recipe for disaster, some might say! – however she performed her job perfectly during the ceremony and was a model-dog during the photos afterwards (credit where credit is due, Julie & Andrew were pretty well behaved too).
A selection of my favourite shots from the day are below. I particularly loved the bridal car (phwoar!), photographing the bridal party in the vineyard (it was early in the season, so although the vines weren’t in full leaf yet they made for great shapes and perspective) as well as all the other special little spots that the venue had to offer.
