In early April, I had the absolute pleasure of photographing James & Diana’s Arrowtown Athenaeum Hall and Thurlby Domain Wedding. James & Diana are an awesome local Arrowtown couple and, with their son Luke, an awesome family too.
THE WHERE & THE WHEN
They chose Thurlby Domain & Arrowtown Athenaeum Hall as their venues and autumn as the season for their Arrowtown Wedding. If I was to describe their wedding in a few words, those words would be “super down-to-earth, relaxed & beautiful”.
The weather gods really turned it on for their big day. The sun was shining and the trees and ground were gold with autumn leaves. The light was magic and everything looked amazing.
Diana and the girls got ready nearby at Millbrook Resort, while James and the lads got ready at their family home in Arrowtown.
James & Diana’s wee son Luke (8 months old, I believe) was in attendance as the ring bearer and did a sterling job. (Even if he did need to be carried). Oh, and there may or may not have been some peeing during the ceremony. (I can neither confirm nor deny that) but all in all, he did a stellar job.
All in all it was a pretty magical day. I do feel super lucky to not only be doing what I do for a living but also to be working with such awesome couples. James and Diana and little Luke, you guys rock and your wedding day was awesome! Thanks for letting me be a part of it!
But enough wiffle-waffle from me, I’ll let the photos do the talking. If you dig these photos and you would like to have a chat about Photography for your Wedding, you can get in touch with me here. And you can check out more samples of my Relaxed, Natural & Fun Queenstown Wedding Photography here.
