Lee and Stephen chose a classic wedding at the Boatshed Café on the shores of Lake Karapiro in the Waikato. This is a Waikato girl after my own heart, opting for floral gumboots under her delicate tulle gown; Shelley by Maggie Sottero, not to mention a sleek GTS featuring prominently in their wedding shoot!

Lee visited the Hamilton Astra Bridal salon where Dee assisted her to select the Shelley gown. “I loved the delicate detailing of this gown, from the beading to the buttons.”

The couple wanted a stress free and fun day, which was evident in these stunning shots captured by Jay Drew. Lee admitted that the fun and creativity of bridal shoot was actually her favourite part of the day!

With the cake, flowers and makeup all done by family friends, this is yet another incredibly lucky couple who have fabulous people in their lives to help with the details of their wedding!
