Kirsty and Warwick reached out to us around 7 months before their big day. Warwick runs his own landscaping business while Kirsty used to be a professional beauty therapist. Being North Shore locals, we caught up at a cafe in Takapuna and we instantly hit it off!
They hired us to cover both their Markovina wedding photography and wedding videography. Their package included an engagement session so they could get comfortable working with us on their wedding day. We decided on Muriwai for their pre-wedding photoshoot (there are a few places in the world that can compete with Auckland's rugged west coast) and we had so much fun. We mostly walked around Maori Bay letting them do their thing while Laura captured those magic moments. You can see some of the photos from Kirsty and Warwick's Auckland engagement photography session here.
For their wedding day, Kirsty and Warwick chose Markovina in Kumeu as their wedding venue. Markovina is as famous for its gorgeous outdoor space and gardens as it is for the level of service they offer couples getting married there.
Kirsty arrived in style, in a Limo with her bridesmaids. She looked absolutely stunning in her Kenneth Winston wedding dress and as she prepared to walk down the aisle with her dad, Warwick, flanked by his brother and best friends looked a tad nervous! It would be difficult to get a bad shot in the wedding video in such a stunning location. As Kirsty walked down, Warwick had tears in his eyes. The wedding ceremony was beautiful; Kirsty's aunt prepared a touching speech which we ended up including in the wedding video as a monologue. Soon after the ceremony, canapés were served while guests mingled and children played in the beautiful surroundings.
As evening approached, there were speeches where speakers shared amusing, loving and touching stories of Warwick and Kirsty followed by their classy and traditional first dance.
It was a perfect day, blessed with perfect weather with amazing people.
"We highly recommend Laura and Rohan, They are so talented and lovely to deal with. They did such an amazing job capturing our engagement shoot and wedding.
We have had so many compliments on the video and photos we are blown away at how incredible you covered everything. Thank you both so very much!"
