Matakana Wedding | Annaliese & Jason
Annaliese and Jason’s Matakana wedding had me grinning from ear to ear all day! They were so much fun to be around and their quirky personalities and jokes ensured that everyone had a good time. There was a minor hiccup with a power cut when they started to get ready, but they did not let that dampen their mood. They just simply shifted location for a couple of hours until they could come back to their original location – Sugar Loaf Lodge in Matakana. And what a stunning spot to get ready, with views over Omaha beach and their wedding venue. Jason got to see his stunning bride for a ‘first look’ before doing some photos pre ceremony so that they could spend more time with their guests.
Both the ceremony and reception were held at The Stables. Their guests were witnessing a stunning ceremony outside, and then got to enjoy themselves with drinks and nibbles on the lawn, before entering reception where the laughter from the speeches was echoing into the night. It was definitely some of the funniest speeches I have heard, and at times even I had to pull myself together to stop the camera from shaking!
Thank you to Annaliese and Jason for having me along to capture your wedding, it was a totally amazing day!
