Kareshma and Raj II by Catherine Te Reo

Here is Part Two of Raj and Kareshmas Wedding celebration.  Kareshma wore the most beautiful Anna Schimmel long sleeve gown, the beading and details were just exquisite (we had to be careful around Bosley the Cat - he loved it just as much as everyone else).  Raj and the boys turned heads with their very suave Working Style Suits. They said "I Do" at St Georges Church in Epsom and then had the party at Villa Maria Winery at Airport Oaks.  We had ample time for photos and worked up a photo storm at Cornwall Park and in Mangere Bridge.  It was another very cool day and I have to thank everyone for being so friendly, welcoming and generally just amazing to be around - so much laughing, cheering and warmth.

Special mentions to Kate Wark of Kate Wark Photography for being that special second photographer gal who helped me with the boys and ceremony.  Cant wait to work together again (Mexico? Japan? Tahiti? Any preference? Hehe) and Rachelle Fisher for the amazing makeup!  You are so good at what you do, I can't wait to see more work of yours!

Kareshma and Raj by Catherine Te Reo

Kareshma and Raj are the craziest most fun couple ever - as soon as I met them for our first meeting I knew we would be friends even well after the wedding.  Easy to talk to, easy to laugh and joke around with.  I was lucky enough to spend two amazing days with them for their two-part wedding celebration. For the first day we started off at Cornwall Park for their bridal session where Kareshma arrived in the most beautiful White Sari I have ever seen.  She looked absolutely stunning! Raj was looking very dapper rocking his suit like a Prince.  We then followed up Cornwall park with their Ceremony at the Mahatma Ghandi Centre in Mt Eden.  As my first time shooting an Indian Ceremony I was completely taken back with the explosion of colour.  All the women looked stunning in their colourful Sari's and as a photographer who loves colour - this was a dream come true!

Devonport Engagement by Catherine Te Reo

This was the cutest engagement shoot.  Jodi and Matt were so nervous and I have no idea why, they were really playful for the camera and were so natural.  We shot their engagement in Devonport.  The light was just so pretty, and there was hardly anyone on the beach - except for a couple of Cats cruising around on the sand (I have never seen cats on a beach before!)

Markovina Wedding by Catherine Te Reo

Where do I even start with this beauty of a wedding? Kate and Tane got married at one of my favourite venues Markovina Vineyard Estate. Kate is famous for her hair extensions, she has a salon called Loxy's in Grey Lynn and she has a massive following.  She is not only good at what she does but she is the most genuine, optimistic person you would ever meet.  Her smile is so infectious - if you are ever having a crappy day, just go visit her!  

Claire from One Lovely Day did an amazing job of styling their wedding.  They had the coolest painted wooden signs, giant games like Jenga and pick up sticks to keep the guests/photographers entertained.  Claire is also a florist - all the flowers and bouquets were made by her too.  Amy from Loxys is the guru behind the luscious locks of hair, and Kate's girl friend Lizzy is the lovely lady who did the make up.  The boys did well too - looking all dapper in their suits and retro red car that matches the jug and toaster.  Actually - the beers they were drinking in the morning were the same colour haha.
