kerry & daniel | corbridge woolshed wedding, wanaka


Kerry and Daniel married on the most beautiful mid summers day next to the pond at Corbridge Woolshed in Wanaka. The Woolshed and surrounding outdoor area was styled with rugs, cushions, festoon lighting and cane furniture - it looked incredible and guests loved mingling on the lawn through the afternoon and evening.

Massive highlight of this wedding was my first helicopter flight. I was equally excited and nervous but loved it so much! We headed up to the Twin Peak mountain range and adventured across the rocks and tussock to find the sweet spots for epic views.

After a few speeches I took Kerry and Daniel out in the super golden setting sun for some more portraits of the two of them with the mountain range in the background. What a dream for a photographer!! I’m so darn lucky!

Congrats Kerry and Daniel, thanks so much for the amazing day x
