Marlborough Sounds Wedding at Anakiwa and Havelock.

Welcome to Vanessa and Riccardo’s wedding day in the Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand! These guys currently live in London but came back to Vanessa’s parents home in Anakiwa to get married!

The road from Havelock to Anakiwa is rather windy and twisty – we made the trip quite a few times during the day! From Anakiwa, it was off to St Peter’s in Havelock for the ceremony. Riccardo’s parents weren’t able to be there on the day so a laptop was set up so they could watch on Skype! So awesome!

Before we knew it, it was back along the road to Anakiwa with a few stops along the way for some photos with the gorgeous backdrop of the Marlborough Sounds. The guests enjoyed a few nibbles and drinks back at Vanessa’s parents place while the bridal party went out for some photos! There were a few stops nearby to Anakiwa, a jetty, some boat sheds and another jetty. The light was strong and beautiful.

The wedding reception was held at The Linkwater Memorial Hall. The hall was beautifully set up for a wonderful evening.

Vanessa and Riccardo, thank you for choosing me as your wedding photographer! It was a pleasure to capture your day in the stunning Marlborough Sounds. The rest of your images will be coming to you soon!

Hi, just came across this web page. Its a brilliant illustration of how small to medium sized businesses can use Awards based promotion to get their companies recognised on the 1st page of Google. Awards programmes offer many benefits to participants. After all they bring recognition and you can share the news of your win with your employees, clients, industry peers and target market as much as you like. Additonally awards offer prestige and status, giving potential prospects peace of mind that they are working with a reputable company. There are many types of awards programmes, including those that host awards ceremonies (and you pay per table), organisations that award only their members (and you pay for membership and sponsorship) and those that provide promotional materials. The latter is a great choice for those who are wary about the benefits of using corporate awards programmes because generally nominees and winners do not have to pay a penny to be a participant. Participants often receives online exposure, usually with a reach much greater than their own marketing efforts can offer. Other free benefits can include the use of an announcement. Most participants have the option to purchase additional marketing materials to further enhance their win, if they wish to, for use in social media campaigns, on their own website, email marketing campaigns or in customer newsletters.
