Alicia & Keegan had their ceremony & reception at beautiful Mt Vernon, overlooking Akaroa Harbour on Banks Peninsula. The views are spectacular, and we were very lucky to have blue skies to compliment the aqua sea & ochre hills. The unity candle ceremony was almost hampered by gusty winds, but by working together as a team Alicia & Keegan got the candle lit in the end.
After the ceremony the bridal party and I went for a tiki tour around Akaroa. The first stop was at the iconic jetty where I got some beautiful shots as the wind caught Alicia’s veil. Next we went for a bit of a drive to find the lighthouse – got a wee bit lost trying to find it, but find it we did – and on the way stopped off the playground in Tane’s Garden for some more casual shots on the playground equipment. By the time we got to the lighthouse the evening light was golden and romantic, making it absolutely perfect for wedding photography. We had a few quick shots with the bridal car (Alicia tells me that it’s Keegan’s pride & joy), and after some candid shots walking over the bridge into Akaroa we went back up the hill to Mt Vernon Estate for the reception.
