Richard and Dennelle | Whananaki, Whangarei, Northland
Richard and Dennelle were in the enviable position of having their wedding at their own private beach in Whananaki, Northland - and it was amazing!
The girls got ready in Whangarei with bubbles flowing (and a few Subway sandwiches from dad), while the boys prepped at the beach house. The ceremony overlooked the local beach and islands and made for a fantastic backdrop. Richard and Dennelle performed a mixing of the sands tradition during the ceremony (sand from his local beach growing up, mixed with hers), and I must say I'm quite a fan - I think it's very fitting of our beachy NZ culture.
After the ceremony we were able to explore the local area for the bridal shots, which meant using the nearby forest and grasslands. An unexpected treat later in the night was the beautiful moonrise which seemed to come straight out of the ocean - capping off a great day and beginning a wonderful new life together for the new couple :)
Thanks guys for the awesome day!
