There’s nothing quite like a private property venue, to make you stoked to be a wedding photographer. I love Waiheke for the simple fact that everyone has escaped to an island, so they are always ready to have a great day. The vibe at Michelle & Kieran’s epic Oneroa Bay wedding was no different! The amazing property looked out over Waiheke Island. The ceremony and reception was styled perfectly.

With a large bridal party full of very close friends, the result was a pretty chaotic day! There was a moment when Michelle, Kieran and the entire bridal party were singing “We are the Champions” by Queen, while I was shooting. 
They were having a great time and it was totally ‘them’. It is the kind of chaos that I love.

When you can’t decide which wedding dress you love, what do you do?
Well, you wear both! After chatting with the bridesmaids we suggested that Michelle just wear TWO dresses!
Most of all I love that Michelle decided to get changed right on the beach… While all of her girls were standing around her, as human shields from the guys.

Another of my favourite parts of the wedding day is the dance party. Michelle and Keiran’s friends and family were dancing up a storm. So much that the night ended with Michelle and Kieran being lifted up on chairs. It’s one of my personal favourite photos of this wedding season!
