Wanaka // Glendhu Station Rustic Summer Wedding

2021 wedding season kicked off on Saturday in Wanaka at Glendhu Station with William & Nikita ❤️


It was a bright sunny day and man that sun was packing some heat! William & his friends got ready in town while Nikita and her crew used the old homestead on the property.


It was the biggest bridal party I have had with 16 all up - which made for a lot of fun.


Both William & Nikita has written each other messages on the bottom of their shoes and had gifts to open before the ceremony. It was so sweet watching the reactions when they read these messages and saw their beautiful gifts 🥰


After a stunning ceremony overlooking the lake we headed up to a higher spot on the station for some photos.


They kicked the reception off with a first dance (loved this idea!) before enjoying and evening of good food, speeches and lots of laughs.


Congratulations Mr & Mrs Benson - what a fantastic start to 2021!

"How can we even begin to explain how amazing Brogan has been over our wedding experience.


Before we booked Brogan as our photographer we were anxious about feeling awkward getting our photos taken and not knowing what to do with a camera in our face. After falling in love with Kiwi captures on Instagram we decided to book her in for our wedding photographer.


Straight away Brogan made us feel comfortable and at ease. She was always friendly in her emails and responded straight away and answered any questions we had no matter how silly they were. Brogan is situated in Invercargill however was more than happy to travel for our wedding in Wanaka.


We first met Brogan with our engagement photo shoot that came with our package this was the best option as we were able to get to know her and see how she works. We instantly felt at ease and as if we had known Brogan forever, she was friendly and professional. She went through all elements to get photos on the beach with us and they came out better then we could ever expect.


On our wedding day Brogan and Amy were on time and ready to get photographing. It was surprising how much you don’t notice the camera there and to see what amazing photos can be captured in real time. Not once did Brogan make us fake it or pose and instead let us be natural and comfortable which can be seen in the photos we received.


Brogan was calm and professional on the wedding day which made for a smooth easy day with no need for a bridezilla moment. Brogan was very fast at getting us photos after the wedding and we really couldn’t ask for anyone better. The photos are beautiful quality and have turned out more than perfect for us to share our memories forever.


We honestly could not recommend Brogan enough as a Wedding photographer."
