Tiff and Pete have been friend’s of my husbands for years (and mine too!) so it was a really natural thing to end up photographing their beautiful Tauranga wedding. Tiff’s vision for the big day was to make sure it looked elegant, simple yet luxe, and timeless. Tiff and Pete chose Ataahua Garden Venue because of its classy, sophisticated vibe, and together with the talented Shae from On My Hand, they brought Tiff’s vision to life.
The day was full of wonderful moments, it always is when your friends declare their love for each other – but seeing Pete tear up during speeches was the most touching of them all. It showed just how special this union was, to the both of them. When Tiff took over and finished his speech for him there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.
Bucking tradition and staying true to themselves throughout the whole wedding, instead of dancing after dinner, Tiff and Pete hosted a game of trivia (which brought out everyone’s competitive side and had us all in stitches).

Thanks you two for the honour of being your photographer and your guest. We know you have a wonderfully happy marriage.
