Emma & Adam were married on Saturday at Parehua Executive Retreat, Martinborough. Parehua is a gorgeous venue and we always have fun working there. Emma & Adam decided to do a pre-ceremony shoot so we headed on over to see where the girls were getting ready. Emma had the most amazing gown that she had brought over all the way from New York - it was quite a mission getting it here! We then popped over to see the boys and then it was outside for the 'first look' shots. After that it was off to some nearby spots for the bridal party images. The ceremony was beautiful - held under the trees by the lake and we had some very welcome cloud cover. A few more shots with Emma & Adam after the ceremony in the grounds of Parehua - making the most of the lovely flax by the lake. Then it was time for the cocktail hour with the guests. The speeches are great fun to photograph and at this wedding I probably heard one the best speeches yet! It was based on a letter Emma had written year ago, and for a minute we didn't quite know where it was going! I got some great expressions from Emma and the end of the letter was very sweet, and not quite what we were expecting!. I think Megan was forgiven in the end!
