Lydia + Brendan // The Old Church // Napier Wedding Photographer

Lydia and Brendan’s wedding was one of those ‘pinch-me’ weddings, where everything was just so incredibly beautiful. After becoming engaged, Lydia had her heart set on The Old Church as their venue – so much so, that they even changed their wedding date to get married there. I love that Lydia and Brendan chose to have a Greek Orthodox ceremony within the Old Church itself… the ambiance and emotion absolutely blew me away! I swear I had goosebumps the entire time as I knew I was witnessing something pretty special. Following on from the ceremony we headed to a nearby orchard in the pouring rain, hoping for a break in the weather to take some photographs amongst the blossoms. I couldn’t believe how lucky we were when the rain stopped just as we arrived, only to start again as we were finishing – the timing couldn’t have been more perfect! Oh, and did I mention how incredible Lydia looked? And that dress… Ah-maze-ing! The love that these two have for each other is like no other and their wedding day was such a wonderful thing to be a part of. Thank you so much for allowing me to capture all the moments xx
