Otatara // Backyard + Sandy Point Wedding

Summer is turning up the heat and it was an absolute scorcher for Tegan & Luke’s Otatara wedding on Friday.

Luke & his groomsmen had a very busy morning setting up the last bits and pieces for the ceremony/reception which were held at his parents house in their garden. In between carting things around they managed to get ready and out to Sandy Point for the first look.

Tegan was getting ready in town with her bridesmaids and family. Her poor Mum had an accident the day before and broke her ankle, but was still in great spirits and ready for the big day! They had a beautiful space to get dresses in and a huge staircase for a dramatic father/daughter first look.

In need to some shade we went out to the forest at Daffodil Bay for some photos before heading out to Branxholme. Luke maintains bridges (this one as well!) and loves this particular bridge - so we had to go and get some photos there. It was super busy with people out swimming and enjoying the good weather.

Bang on time they arrived back in Otatara for a quick ceremony. Matilda the couple daughter came down the aisle blowing bubbles and guests sipped champagne. They had a beautiful ceremony and walked out to dried flowers being tossed!

This flowed into the reception, which was in a marquee out the back. Amazing styling and decorating (I can’t fit it all into this post) with not only a candy bar, but an ice cream bar for dessert too!

When it came to hitting the dance floor, everyone got involved - even Tegan’s Mum had a dance with Luke in her wheelchair and casted leg!

It was a day totally filled with love and happiness all round. Congratulations Mr & Mrs Wells! 🥂

"Brogan is incredible at what she does! Everyone needs to have a Brogan in their life!

I tell everyone and anyone that will listen to me about our wedding photographer! From the first email I sent until the special 'post wedding' package that arrived on my doorstep with our wedding album and 'extras'. We were so impressed to have our photos back so quickly and they were incredible.

Her professionalism was faultless and her communication was even better. We are so thankful that we chose Brogan to capture our day. She really is amazing and everyone should book her for their own special moments to be captured! Brogan had thought of everything and was so helpful when I was unsure.

As part of our package we got an engagement shoot. These too are photos we will treasure forever because she got so many special moments with our little girl. We love looking through our wedding album and seeing different photos each time, she really did capture our day beautifully including all the little details. Her easy going nature put me at ease on my wedding day when she reminded me that it was about us and there was no time restraints, just go with it!

Thank you so much for your hard work Brogan, working with you was simply the best decision we had made and we will treasure our photos forever!

1000% recommend Kiwi Captures!!"
