Eleisha & Paul were married on their own property in Dairy Flat, Auckland.
When I asked Eleisha what her plans were on the morning of the wedding day, she said “oh – hair & makeup will be around 12 noon”.
“What will you be up to before that?”
“Oh – just setting up a few things here”.
Turns out – ‘setting up a few things’ equals being totally badass. Driving around on the quad bike, chopping bits of toi toi for decorations using a machete, banging up dart boards with a nail gun … these guys know how to do it!
Friends & family pitched in to help in the morning, and within a few hours the marquee was decked out & looking amazing.
Back at home, Eleisha began getting her makeup done – and it was pretty quickly apparent that soft, neutral bridal tones weren’t on the menu today. So many style points!
Their heartfelt ceremony included many tears – and afterwards the rain turned on an unexpected downpour, right as we were heading out to take some photos! Luckily, the sun made a breakthrough shortly afterwards and we had the chance to go play with Eleisha’s horses.
Everyone tucked into delicious paella for dinner, and the cute caravan bar kept the drinks flowing all night long. Even the stars made an appearance late in the night – a perfect way to finish.
This is just a tiny sneak peek of Eleisha & Paul’s photos – there are more than 500 still to follow! Enjoy.
