Love Story


Arie & Justins beautiful Vilagrad Winery wedding was such an amazing day to be a part of. If you haven't heard of it yet, Vilagrad Winery is a beautiful Vineyard set amongst the Waikato Countryside. It's all inclusive with ceremony, reception, photography and even accommodation options! Every time I have been to this venue the staff have been so so lovely and the food is always delicious. My favourite time for photographs at this venue has got to be when the maze is out, just like this day.

When I first met this couple, Arie & Justin had told me they were going to be super awkward in front of the camera. I think they lied, just look at how amazing these two look in their photos!

This day was so full of love, family and so many big grins of happiness. I absolutely loved being a part of this beautiful day, from all the fluffiness of Barkley their furbaby and the chubby cheeks of their little boy through to the laughs during the ceremony and amazing sunset this has got to be a top wedding for me.

Weddings always have some things that don't quite go to plan, that's pretty normal. There are a lot of things that we can't control. Having a 2022 wedding though, that's a whole new level of stress but I can honestly say, these two didn't let that stop them. No matter what was thrown at these two on the day they took it in their stride and just looked like they were having the absolute best time regardless. And that I believe is what makes the day!

Enough about what I think though, just check out their beautiful day below!
