Christchurch Harbour Hotel Wedding photographer – Beth & Simon

A wonderful working wedding photographer wedding day at Christchurch Harbour hotel. Well what an absolutely lovely couple Beth & Simon were, their wedding had so many imaginative details to it and Simon wont mind me saying this but Beth had done a wonderful job of organising everything. Beth arranged the best wedding suppliers around her which gave her the complete confidence to just sit back and let her big day unfold without any stresses.

The total guest numbers were 30 and only 8 of those were from Christchurch and surrounding areas, everyone else had travelled from all over the world, but mainly from my MOST favourite place in the world Australia, which included Beth & Simon, who organised the whole wedding from a few trips to and from the UK, and from afar via the net. I actually started once the process of emigrating to Oz but various things happened in my life which changed that, and also I realised it might not be the done thing to carry on supporting England when the ashes is on!

I loved all the little touches on the day, the little union jack cases for the polaroid film and batteries and bubble bottles which were to be used instead of confetti. Also on the point of bubble blowing, well done to everyone for braving the Arctic temperatures to supply the fog of bubbles. The guest book was very well done by the guests, lots of polaroid photos taken and beautiful messages inside. Also have a look at the invites, really in keeping with the large traveling group of Bride & Groom and other guests which I just had to photograph.

We had allot of fun, and I am sure you will see that from all the photos from start to finish!

The tables for the wedding breakfast looked awesome arranged in the banquette style, which by the way makes for easy photographic access, looks amazing, and saves many headaches when arranging your seating plan!

Les doing the Father of the bride speech was overcome with emotion, and his son Jerad stepped into the fold to help out, Les then came back into the speech with a renewed vigour! For all those Dads out there who will one day be at their Daughters wedding, the experience is an intense one, it really is one of those massive forks in the road in life, and all those wonderful memories can come flooding back to you in an instant, which is always overwhelming. These memories and emotions are what make a wedding day memorable and one of the most special days in a families life. Standing up in front of everyone reeling off a flawless speech is fantastic, but when the emotions come through it just shows everyone the words come from the heart, and it is a real tear jerker for all involved.

Shout outs for the suppliers on the day who all played their part in making the day flow smoothly  – Natalie at Flowers by Design who supplied all the wonderful flowers and bouquets,  Bridal Beauty for doing the makeup for the girls, Big Day films for the videography, All Aspects for providing the wonderful Rolls Royce which I got a ride in to Christchurch ruins for the romantic shoot, Absolute Fun Casino who I have worked with so many times and always get great photos from, Jess the Harpist who provided such beautiful music throughout the ceremony and wedding breakfast, and last but not least, all the wonderful staff at Christchurch Harbour Hotel, who all were on hand when I could not get an answer to Beth’s room (she was at the hairdressers) to try and find out where she might be, also special thanks goes to Chris who is the one of the hands on Managers who liaises with all involved during the wedding day, and I have worked with many times now which means we both find it a breeze to work together to help the day run smoothly.
