Rochelle and Mark - wedding at Castaways

Another super wedding held at Castaways recently, being that of Rochelle and Mark. My first shot of the day was of Rochelle's gorgeous ginger cat, who was wondering I imagine, what all the fuss was about, as he was removed from his perfect grassy hideaway. The gorgeous flowers were by Lisa Hamilton at Bridal Flowers. After shots of the family and attendants at home - it was then a comfortable ride via Rolls Royce down the southern motorway to Karioitahi. It wasn't long before Rochelle, who was given away by her son Lachlan ,was being piped down the lawn at the Castaways venue, towards Mark and the wedding guests at the cliff edge.
Another windy day on the West Coast and it was perfect for the glider type aircraft zipping past overhead during the perfect wedding ceremony - which was taken by Chaplain David Smith.
After family photos it was off to the beach for fun shots at the beach. Sally was again assisting for the day (thanks so much Sal) and was a wonderful help to us. She has discovered my penchant for jetplans :) and Mr Mike had to make do with what was left!
Rochelle and Mark and the wedding party were great fun and we had the best time - with some terrific images produced, a perfect mix of fun, casual, arty and classic shots. We returned to the Castaways venue later in the evening for the sunset shots and we were rewarded with colourful sunset.
Much thanks again to Rochelle and Mark and the great cast and crew at Castaways for another awesome day!
