Chelsie and Mat | The Stables Matakana, Auckland
Chelsie and Mat are a super fun-loving and relaxed pair.
They had a wonderful wedding on a chilly April Friday in Matakana at The Stables wedding venue.
Chelsie and her girls got ready at the beautiful Takatu Villa, a perfect choice for girls prep as there is plenty of space for everyone, and it also has some great spots for gorgeous bridal portraits before leaving for the ceremony.
Chelsie and Mat had both the ceremony and their reception at The Stables. With both dry and wet-weather options, it's a fantastic option for that rustic, relaxed vibe without the work of a DIY venue.I love photographing local weddings and know Matakana really well, so we planned a super-chilled photoshoot to suit their day on some private land that the farmer has kindly given us access to nearby.
The weather held off just long enough for all the key moments of the day - we didn't get the marvellous sunset shots we were hoping for - but other than that it was a perfect day!
