Ben + Sarah's Waiheke elopement

I love to photograph elopements, so simple, heartfelt and incredibly romantic to head away and get married. just the two of you.

On a stormy summers afternoon ( a passing cyclone ) in a remote corner of Waiheke Island Ben & Sarah chose to tie the knot at the cottage they were staying at ...nestled into the hillside right by the waters edge.

They had travelled from London here to New Zealand, where Sarah had spent her youth growing up.

Sarah did her own hair & makeup, and Ben set up the cermeony scene with driftwood off the beach and when i left them they had a local chef come and prepare them a delicious degustation menu matched with Waiheke wines. 

So simple, so beautiful.
