Every Single Day



For our last destination wedding in the Far North, Lisa and Dan exchanged their vows in the idyllic Karikari Peninsula.   The secluded shores of Whatuwhiwhi Beach provided a picturesque backdrop for the ceremony overlooking clear turquoise seas, followed by an enchanting reception in Karikari Estate Winery’s Barrel Room. It was so well suited to their casual but elegant wedding.

Lisa and Dan took on a lot of the final wedding tasks themselves and when editing the footage I was reminded just how relaxed they were and how smoothly everything went for them.   While Lisa and her bridesmaids busied themselves doing each other’s hair and make-up, Dan was in charge of the setting up the ceremony. Armed with rakes, saws and a cricket bat, the groomsmen set to work clearing debris and preparing a make-shift aisle in the caramel sands, yet they still managed to find time for fun in the sea before the ceremony.

The ceremony reflected Lisa and Dan's casual theme with a touch of class perfectly.  Overlooking the clear sparkling waters, Dan with is trousers rolled up and Lisa with an exquisite gown with bare feet, exchanged their vows in front of an intimate group of family and friends.

Their reception at Karikari Estate’s Barrel Room was transformed into a magical romantic wonderland with twinkling fairy lights, candelabras, rustic place settings set amongst wine barrels.  Dan’s speech was a breath-taking reflection of a truly lovely couple and provided the perfect narrative for their highlight film.  As Dan so beautifully puts it…

“I have always made my attentions known, to fall in love, to enjoy each other’s company, to have kids, to build a life together… things I just know we will do together”
