Some Sunset Magic – When West is BestApril 5, 2018
Wedding Photography's Real Boss
Wellington has the odd breeze gatecrash a wedding. Some fight it with indoor shoots or masses of hairspray. Natalia and Adam embraced it - and just as the wind made the trees, flax and grass dance, our lovely couple joined in.
With wedding photography, the weather is the boss (followed very closely by the bride), and the best thing to do is make the most of the unique photo opportunities (and enjoy the no-sweat moments that wind and rain provide).
Now, the more observant among you might be seeing red by now. It’s pretty common amongst Indian and Chinese brides, but not so much here in New Zealand. But then again, Natalia and Adam don’t really do common, so why should their wedding be any different.
Mind you, the biggest surprise for me wasn’t the red - and it certainly wasn’t the wind. It was what a beautiful place the SPCA is. Grand and historic, it’s nestled happily in Wellington’s town belt, making it perfect to pop across the road and get some of that wild Wellington in the wedding photos.
