Gore // The Farm Chapel + Stretch Tents Wedding

What a dream day for Philippa & Daniel’s wedding at The Farm Chapel on Friday! 26 degrees and bluebird skies 👌🏼

Philippa spent the morning getting ready with the bridesmaids. She has thought of every little detail and had this beautiful stationary with a wax seal. (She is also an amazing photographer @withlovephotographynz ).

Everyone arrived at the venue and enjoyed a few drinks in the aeroplane hanger, what was decorated up with a balloon arch, wine barrel tables, signage and couches. The big doors open looking out over the surrounding farmland.

Daniel & the guys almost melted in their jackets inside the church! When Philippa walked down the aisle all eyes were on her and there were definitely a few tears. They had a beautiful ceremony, followed by mingling, drinks and soaking in the sun.

We headed for the shade of the park in Gore for some photos. There is a nice spot with gum trees by the river. It almost felt like we were in Australia!

Back at the reception the tent was set up for dinner with long tables. The cake was cut and speeches commenced. I know it will have been a fabulous night of more laughter and some great partying 🥳

Congratulations Mr & Mrs O’Connell! 🥂
