Riccardo and Vanessa
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!
