Loads of love and laughter in Sean + Karen’s gorgeous Red Barn wedding! The bridal party got ready at Oar + Paddle Accommodation on the Karapiro river. This accommodation is made for wedding parties to get ready in style and comfort, and it’s a totally insta-worthy backdrop for all your gorgeous getting ready photos and film!
Karen chose rustic greenery, gold, navy and a delicious claret red for the wedding colours. She took some time choosing this particular red, so when grading this film, we wanted to make sure we stayed true to that, so that the bridesmaid dress colour didn’t change drastically in post. It can happen :-O.
A little gorgeous and personal touch I loved was the table numbers which had both the Bride and Groom at the age of of the table number – aged one, two, three and so on. FYI, we found out later that the table setting was missing the guest gift. It was laid out next to the dessert later in the evening, which I think was even better than having it on the table. Not sure what was in it, but it had a cute vintage world map design, and swing tag with thank you messsge. Super cute!
Once again, the Red Barn sunset shoot didn’t disappoint! Nor did the yummy food, atmosphere and friendly staff. There’s nothing better than having a venue that has it all, so you don’t have to spend time driving around for cool photo locations. You can do it all onsite, and spend more time with your guests.
Congratulations Sean + Karen! You guys are so funny and I had trouble holding in the laughter off camera (Gray always tells me off for being too noisy!). We’re so chuffed we could be a part of your day! xox
