Brittany + Coree

LARCOMB VINEYARD WEDDING, CHRISTCHURCH, NZ

I first met Britt at the Wild Hearts wedding fair in 2018 when she was looking at my photography for her 2020 wedding. As soon as I met her we just clicked – and I absolutely knew she was going to be such an incredible bride, and when she spoke about Coree and how long they had been together the excitement really started.

Roll onto the wedding and I was SO excited to hear that Britt was 20 weeks pregnant AND that she was going to surprise Coree with a gender reveal at the reception – eee! We started the day with them getting ready in neighbouring townhouses, it was predicted to be around 30deg but luckily wasn’t (phew) she had the dream team Nyspre Hair + KM Makeup pampering her when I arrived there was such a buzz in the air.

I popped back and forth between the gals and guys houses (by the way this is the perfect solution for getting ready photos) joining in and capturing all of the laughter and nervous energy – before long it was time to head out to get hitched! These guys were lucky enough to have won the hire of Larcomb Vineyard at the Wild Hearts Fair and it truly was the most epic place to celebrate this incredible day. Tom and the team from G&T Catering had the place looking spick and span, with Blues Booth parked inside and an amazing styling job from Hayley and Co I got even MORE excited as I arrived to photograph the details.

BOY, IT WAS HOT. As I got out of my car at Larcomb I realised it was a whopping 34deg – still smiling these guys trooped through a hot and beautiful ceremony with personal vows and a few tears (and a little sweat). We stayed on site for portraits with so many shady spots allowing us the perfect places for a cool picnic and relaxed bridal party photos (the dream!) Everything was absolutely perfect and the reception was filled with hilarious speeches and a few tricks, a surprise video message from the missing best man who was overseas playing basketball. It couldn’t have been any more amazing and I could go on for hours about every little thing that made it so, but enough from me. Check it out below and don’t forget to leave a message for the bride and groom below! Enjoy X
