This was a beautiful wedding. This was also a very very very wet beautiful wedding.
Quite possibly the rainiest stormiest soggiest wedding I’ve ever captured. I arrived in the Nelson Lakes Area on a beautiful sunny afternoon, to be told the following day a tropical cyclone was coming our way. Weather. One thing you can’t control at weddings. But it’s also one thing we and our couples thrive on embracing.
Kate and Alex had a plan to head down Lake Rotoiti, with their wedding party, on a small semi uncovered boat and then hike up through a forest to a waterfall. And yes in the rain wearing extraordinarily inappropriate clothing and shoes. I did half heartedly advise them against this, but deep down couldn’t wait to see what would unfold if they did.
Embraced it they did.
