A great wedding this past weekend - held at the Nathan Homestead, Manurewa with a favourite couple Cara and Nick. History was a great part of their day - especially with the bracelet that Cara wore, where she was the seventh generation bride in her family to wear this on her wedding day.
The huge family bible, 150 years old, also came out into the gorgeous sunshine that filled the Nathan Homestead garden - where Cara and Nick were married. The homestead grounds were emaculate as always. Many of Cara and Nick's family were involved in the wedding preparations for the day and the wedding certainly had a lovely family vibe to it.
Cara looked stunning in her gown - and makeup for her and the bridesmaids, was by Shelia Rama. Cara and Nick's wedding rings were from Grace Jewellers in Papakura.
After the family photos we headed along to the Botanic Gardens for a fun location shoot with the bridal party. The day brought sunshine, wind, cloud and eventually a few spits of rain , which held on to it's arrival until well after the start of the reception
We had assisting us for the first time, Sally, who I have known for many years during her time playing for the Waiuku Womans premier football team. Recently though she has been studying at Whitecliffs and has chosen photography as her major for her BFA. The last five images in this set are Sally's and she has made a great start with us and will come again for a few more local weddings later in the year.
Our congratulations to Nick and Cara - what a lovely day, great family and a very cool wedding party!
