What an absolute glorious day for Courtney & Ryan’s wedding on the family farm in Mossburn. It was super foggy all morning, but when the cloud burnt off we got the most beautiful, warm, blue sky day!
Ryan & the guys got ready at a friends house, complete with pet goat who added to the antics by picking up cigarette butts and looking like she was smoking them.
Courtney got ready in Manapouri with a view out over the lake. Her friend Gin made all of the florals for the day and they looked amazing. We did a few first looks - with Dad, the bridesmaids and the rest of the family before heading across the road to meet the guys.
Frasers Beach is a spot the Courtney loves to spend time at - and I can see why! It is the most picturesque beach, with deep blue water and mountains all around. This is where we did a first look with Ryan and photos with the bridal party. Enroute back to the farm we also stopped at a woolshed to get a few photos too.
The ceremony was held in the couples backyard, with wooden doors as a backdrop and the scenery took care of the rest. It was a short and sweet ceremony, with the pair walking out to an explosion of flowers.
The reception was the dream set up. Big stretch tent, a caravan bar, bar leaners & tables, braziers for when it gets cold, lawn games and lots of food & drink! With the sun beating down everyone looked like they were having a grand old time.
Friends and family got up and said some lovely things and cracked a few jokes before they dove into a beautiful meal and the partying really kicked off. Such a fabulous day!
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Carter! 🥂
