There is something about a real country wedding, something that is not styled to ‘look country’ but something that actually is at the heart of who these people are. A simple, elegant affair set in the beautiful Paloma gardens hidden deep in the heart of the Wanganui countryside. This was the perfect venue for this country couple. But no riding tractors here – just maybe the odd moo from the back paddocks could be heard. Our bride Suki, a gorgeous half Japanese bride, paying homage to her Japanese roots yet also lovingly paying tribute to the Kiwi countryside that she is settled into. What would finish off a great day in sunny Wanganui? A little trip into town of course – to a historic venue where everyone could have a good ol’ knees up with live music and a decadent menu to fill hungry stomachs. Bravo Richard and Suki, I am very proud to call you my family, these photos make me smile just like you lighten the day of others.
