Linda & Craig’s Trentham racecourse wedding 9th March 2013
Our day started at Wallaceville House in upper Hutt, where Linda and her lovely bridesmaids were getting ready. A much organised Linda was dressed ready to go by the time we arrived. This gave us an opportunity to get some lovely pictures of her and her lovely bridesmaids and flower girl around the grounds. Not only did we get some really nice romantic photos on the stairwell, but also some nice fun ones outside at the white pagoda.

Just before the ceremony we sneaked away to meet up with Craig and the groomsman at their house to capture some of the boys getting ready, before heading off to Trentham racecourse for the ceremony.
It was lovely to witness the total family involvement in Linda & Craig’s big day. Craig’s little girl was the flower girl, with Linda’s grandfather driving one of the wedding cars.

The ceremony was held outside on the lawn, with a special afternoon tea set up for all guests to enjoy the lovely summer sun where we got to know a bit more about this lovely couple during the speeches.
After afternoon tea and the announcement of the best dressed male and female guest, we went for a bit of a walk to get some lovely pictures with the bridal party.
My favourite spot of the day was the entrance on the side of the beautiful main building. The colour contrast of the door and the ivy growing made for a spectacular picture.
