Julia and Josh ~ Peka Peka ~ Waikanae ~ Beach Wedding

Julia and Josh were married on a fantastic autumn day in Peka Peka, on the Kapiti Coast, at a huge modern house called Peka Peka Paradise. The weather was probably one of the best days so far this year, it was almost too sunny! They had an amazing casual barefoot beach ceremony, a very kiwi wedding, probably a little different from Denmark where Julia’s from and Julia and Josh live. We had our portable studio lighting down on the beach to help get really great colorful photos, it really helped us make great photos!

We spend an hour on the busy streets of Peka Peka taking some photos, then down to the beach for some sunset photos before their reception. Catering was by Ruth Pretty Catering, who provided delicious food and were an absolute pleasure to work with. Julia and Josh braved the cold evening to do their first dance on the picturesque outdoor patio, which was fantastic for photos.

Congratulations to Julia and Josh, it was a fantastic day and we really enjoyed photographing it for you. Here’s some of the photos that’ve caught my eye so far.
