West Coast beach wedding from Vela Images...

Ella and James are so hip it hurts!!! From her Kathryn Wilson shoes to the adorable flower girls vests this wedding is infused with a casual yet sophisticated vibe. I love it when I find out my clients have booked one of my favourite photographers and in this case with the fabulous Greta from Vela Images, I knew that Ella and James would be in safe hands. And when Greta told me that Ella was rather gorgeous... well she wasn't kidding was she!! Ella you look simply stunning and from what I know of you, the day looks like it fit you perfectly!

From Greta... Ella & James wanted a relaxed and intimate wedding with family and a handful of their closest friends somewhere near the ocean. Being passionate surfers they choose Raglan on the west coast of the North Island of New Zealand. Raglan is one of New Zealand best surf breaks and it is a spot that Ella & James often visit. This wedding was very unique to the couple, Ella & James already have a one year old son called Jake who they wanted to include as much as possible. The family wanted to be relaxed so they spent the morning together before the ceremony and James and Ella even whipped out for a morning surf together before coming back to finish off last minute DIY details and get ready for their wedding together.

The ceremony took place up high on a ridge under a bamboo structure made by family which overlooked the one of the couples favorite surf breaks. The aisle was made from sack cloth laid upon the grass and was sprinkled with white rose petals. The scenery was breathtaking and the ceremony was very intimate and romantic.
