Christchurch Trents Wedding

Samuel & Melanie

Sam and Mel’s wedding day was beautiful. With a vintage theme, every detail was carefully chosen. Lace details, pale pink and white flowers and tea lights in cute little jars matched perfectly.

The wedding ceremony was held at Cashmere Presbyterian Church. When Mel entered the church she was glowing. Sam couldn’t wipe the smile off his face and there were many teary eyes. These two were so happy to be getting married! It was a heart warming ceremony.

After the ceremony and of course some family photos, we headed up the port hills to the Sign of the Bellbird for some wedding party photos before traveling to Trents Vineyard for a few more. It sure was a hot day – stunning for photos though!

Nick, Mel’s brother was the MC for the night. He is an awesome magician and performed a few tricks for the guests to enjoy – along with many hilarious jokes! The speeches had everyone laughing and crying at the same time. Many beautiful words were said.

Before long it was time for the first dance and for the guests to dance the night away.

Mel and Sam – thank you so much for inviting me to photograph your wedding day. It was so awesome to be there to capture all the moments you had. Congratulations Mr and Mrs Frei!
