Mark and Christy were married at Mt Albert Methodist.
She rocked up in a friend’s classic Mercedes- grey blue and packed with memories they shared together. I could tell that Mark and Christy were a couple that everyone adored. Those that attended their ceremony couldn’t seem to contain their joy. Matthew Hutching, a groomsman and member of Christy’s band The Bonnie C, played Amazing Grace on the pedal steel guitar during the ceremony and the peaceful hush that feel over the church was beautiful.
I absolutely loved the casual nostalgia these two brought to their day. The super 8 film cameras panning the background in every shot, classic cars, tea and cake in the church hall and I’ve never seen a guy pull off a cravat like Mark did. Christy oozed grace and ease in her amazing two piece dress, and I had a blast cruising the city with the bridal party, drinking Giant craft beer and Champagne.
Christy and Mark brought something to their wedding day that you can’t conjure or learn from a Pinterest top ten list.
They brought authenticity and pure childlike joy and it was an absolute pleasure to capture.
