Toni + Ben // Monica Loves // Napier Wedding Photographer

When one of Hawkes Bay’s most talented florists gets married, you know it’s going to be something pretty special. Having known Toni for a few years now, I always knew she wouldn’t go down the ‘traditional’ road when it came to planning her own wedding. With a date set, then began the arduous task of finding that perfect venue – somewhere with a bit of an urban/industrial feel and more importantly, not your typical ‘venue’. Cue Monica Loves which came to the party with it’s back alley vibe and New York loft style interior, right in the heart of Napier City. The space was styled impeccably (of course!) with the help of Toni’s friends and family – one of the many aspects which involved a real team effort on the day that in turn makes a wedding like this even more special.

So in the long alleyway outside Monica Loves, on a casual Sunday, Toni married her Ben with their two boys in tow. I hope you enjoy their wedding day story as told through these images.

BIG THANKS to the wonderful Melissa Mills for co-shooting with me on the day. Details for Toni and Ben’s dream team of vendors are at the end of this post.
