The French Country House Wedding

Holy moly! What a whirlwind! Where do we begin? On a late Saturday evening, we received an email from Bhavna and Jeremy – would we be able to photograph their wedding – in one week – IN NEW ZEALAND? Heck. Yes. We most definietly can photograph their French Country House wedding in Tauranga! 24 hours after the email, Joel and I were rapid-packing, running from Trudeau Airport in Montreal – to O’Hare in Chicago – to SFO and finally, to Auckland – a full 48 hours of travel, a 12 hour power nap, and then another 3 hour drive after that, we’d make it to Tauranga. And needless to say – please take us back!

Bhavna and Jeremy were the most gracious hosts, and beyond their beautifully planned day, of all the groups of guests we’ve ever photographed, our Kiwi hosts were incredible. Thank you SO MUCH for making us feel instantly welcomed and at home. Back to their French Country House wedding: pulled off in a week, with the most beautiful, intimate and sentimental touches. Thank you to the moon and back for having us – we can’t wait to return one day soon!
