Ori & Lauren
People are weird, when we find someone with weirdness that is compatible with ours, we team up and call it love.

Ori & Lauren

I think every time I do a wedding I must subconsciously (hopefully anyway) pick up what works and what doesn't so that when it comes to mine it goes as well as Ori & Lauren's did.

It all started with me dropping my co-photographer Andrew Naysmith (Thanks for your help!) off to the boys in Mt Albert and me heading to Auckland's North Shore. I arrived at the girls house and everything was so calm... The girls hair and makeup was all done well ahead of schedule (Lauren's hair and makeup was done by Gareth Martin) so Lauren even had time to Skype friends and family back in South Africa. This chilled vibe ran through the whole day so was a pleasure to be at.

The ceremony was held at the beautiful Alberton House and was matched by stunning weather and wedding styling thanks to Liz McCready. The couple were looking very spiffy and unsurprising in love. It's always super exciting to see such a couple 'team up' and commit to going on the adventure of life together!

Anyway enough from me. Check out the lovely day below.
