Castle Hill has to be one of New Zealand’s true scenic jewells. So when Kitty & Liam told me they were to be married there, I was most excited. Liam’s family have a connection to the village, and with a lot of Kitty’s family travelling, St Andrews School Lodge was an idyllic retreat for a wedding. With generous timings for photos, I was very excited. Add to that the earlier poor forecast changed, and earlier predictions of rain and snow, instead became a windless sunny day. Though still a tad chilly in the shade, so much so, that the bass player had to surrender to the comfort of the main lodge after the ceremony down in the bush line! But simply having the talented Eastern play was in itself special. Well done to Adam for returning from Europe early to do so.
Please enjoy photos here, the unity of two lovely families, and the hard work of many people to create such a special day
