Natasha and Wayne’s Classic Beach Wedding

Everyone loves a classic Beach Wedding in New Zealand!
The warm sand, summer vibes and cool breezes lend them such a chill and inclusive vibe. Someone walking their dog up the beach wouldn’t feel out of place stopping to celebrate for a spell when done right, and boy did Natasha and Wayne do their day right!

We arrived at their incredible place overlooking Papamoa Beach, where white sands ombre into the deep blue of the Pacific to Wayne’s head sticking out the second-story window to say g’ day. We let our selves in and were meet with the hubbub you get when the whole family is there, and everyone’s got a job to do (and yes pouring drinks on a wedding day is a job).
The big sliding doors were open to the sea breeze, and outside the spring sun was doing it’s best to heat the sand.

We watched from the bleaches as the crew began to set up the ceremony location at the foot of the dunes below the house and the good vibes began to flow. So we headed downstairs to find Natasha busily getting all glam and being helped into THE most gorgeous dress by three generations of family. It looked so lovely for her to have that time just before the ceremony to relax and have a few drinks with kin. Then it was time to head on out.

These two lit the beach on fire with their love! Their ceremony was just perfect, with a small crowd, a loving celebrant Kate from As you like it and ALL the emotions. We then got to whisk Natasha and Wayne off down the beach for some “just them” moments, dragging one of their excellent carpets from the ceremony with us – Totally worth the effort Wayne put into dragging it btw, scroll down to check it out!

This is a Classic Beach Wedding in New Zealand done right, guys! The warm sun setting on our stunning couple, so in love and ready to face the world together. We got all the warm fuzzies from Natasha and Wayne’s wedding day, so scroll on down to see how a Beach Wedding in New Zealand is done right <3
