Phillippa and Matt chose a do it yourself approach to their wedding in Hawkes Bay and I was so lucky to get to photograph it! Roys Hill is known to many as the old Hawkes Bay dump but in recent years it has been covered up and cleaned up to one of the nicest ceremony locations I have ever taken photos at! It is simply stunning! In mid summer you have the golden grass underfoot then there is the border of native plants and a backdrop of vineyards and Te Mata Peak. It just doesn't get any better than that! After the reception we headed to Te Mata Peak for photos and then back to Phillippas parents house for the reception in the apple orchard. Matt brewed all the beer with home grown hops and every detail had been thought out to make this the perfect wedding! Phillippa's make up was done by Alana Taylor Hair and Make Up and hair was by Claire Wynn Hair.
