L’Orangerie Wedding Photographer
Jeremy + Natalie’s wedding day was an absolute stunner from beginning to end. They were married at the beautiful L’Orangerie Wedding Venue in Ohauiti, Tauranga! It is a dream french venue in the heart of New Zealand. Surrounded by gorgeous rolling hills, a beautiful view with neighbours on the horizon, gorgeous Silver Birch trees, long grass, and a barn which has the perfect amount of rustic elegance, it is a photographers (and brides) dream.
Natalie and her Nana went about organising this venue in secret. As a result it became her wedding gift to her grand daughter. Unfortunately she didn’t make it to see Nat walk down the isle and say I do, but she was surely smiling down upon them both from Heaven. During the reception, Jeremy and Natalie had two gorgeous cakes to cut. One cake was an absolute treasure, probably the most emotional part of the day for me. Natalie’s family has a beautiful family cake topper heirloom which has been passed down from generation to generation. And there on top of a fruit cake covered in fondant icing it sat proudly at Natalie’s wedding. Just as it had been at her Nana’s.
Watching Jeremy’s face as he saw his bride coming down the aisle was a dead giveaway that Nat was everything to him. And the smile on her face in return said the same thing. Their day was full of sweet candid moments, laughs and love. It’s my absolute favourite to capture! Thanks Jeremy and Natalie for having us along. We enjoyed it thoroughly, even if I did have Bronchitis and needed to sleep all day on Sunday xxx
