As an Auckland wedding photographer, I also love warm and happy Hamilton weddings.
Those are some of the words that I can use to describe Zara and Nick’s love celebration and you can see this Red Barn wedding wedding photos, captured on the 5th of February.
This couple has been together for 6 years and has a beautiful little daughter.
So, their wedding ceremony was a big one with family and friends surrounding them to show their support.
Zara and Nick are kind, lovely, and easygoing, so despite the hot weather, their wedding was a beautiful success. You need to have been there to enjoy the beauty of that day, but I’ll do my best to share some highlights with you in words and pictures below.
Barn Wedding Venue | Hamilton Weddings
Located in Waikato, the Red Barn is a gen venue that would excite any Auckland wedding photographer to work at.
This historic venue was originally built in the 1860s and has come a long way since then. If you’re looking for a venue that has a rustic elegance and rural charm, this is the venue where you should have your wedding.
It is a standout place for Hamilton weddings too. The red barn offers couples a secluded and gorgeous setting for the wedding of their dreams.
You’ll enjoy panoramic views and sprawling fields that are very picturesque. They also offer in-house catering for your wedding, and their staff is very pleasant to work with.
Zara and Nick’s wedding day dawned bright and early and as I said earlier, the weather was hot! I started the day photographing this couple and their loved ones as they got ready for their celebration.
Zara got ready with her ladies and their little daughter while Nick got ready with his groomsmen.
They all looked amazing. For her wedding dress, Zara put on a lovely off-white wedding gown and she looked angelic.
Nick had on a black suit, white dress shirt, and a black bow tie. He looked quite dapper too.
I was also able to capture lovely wedding ideas like the groom’s hip flask, Glenfiddich whisky, the wedding dress Hamilton, and the bride’s bouquet.
Zara and Nick had a beautiful rustic outdoor ceremony. As someone who has captured many Hamilton weddings, this was one of the superb ones.
Their personalized vows were also really beautiful as the celebrant led them in the ring exchange.
I especially loved the use of wooden details in their ceremony, from their altar backdrop to the wooden cask that their marriage certificate was signed on.
It was lovely to watch this beautiful couple shed a few tears of joy as they officially became man and wife. They then walked away from the altar with the gorgeous little daughter.
- Wedding Photo Session | Hamilton weddings
I captured Zara and Nick in their wedding day photo session at the lovely Red Barn grounds. I also captured their wedding party of eight, and it was a lovely and fun experience.
The bride and her bridesmaids looked gorgeous and had fun while I captured them for the wedding photo session.
So did the groom and his groomsmen. I also captured the couple together with the wedding party looking lovely in the background.
The enormous trees made a beautiful background for this couple’s wedding photo session and so did the long winding road on the premises.
You’ll see what I mean when you take a look at the pictures. This couple looked like they were in a beautiful fairy tale.
After the wedding photo session, it was time to head back to the reception for the party.
The rustic charm of Zara and Nick’s wedding really showed at their wedding reception. The decor at their reception space looked amazing, featuring beautiful string lights and highlighting the wooden details at the venue.
This space was the perfect canvass for the big warm ceremony that this couple had with their loved ones to celebrate their love.
The moment of their first dance was so magical that I could not resist capturing several angles of it. Everyone had a great time.
- What I Loved About the Wedding as An Auckland Wedding Photographer
Despite the rally harsh sun at this wedding, I had a splendid time. I loved working with this couple to document the moments at their celebration.
It’s the part I love the most about capturing Hamilton weddings.
From the moments where they got ready to the end of the day, it was beautiful and fun. I also enjoyed the love, warmth, and support shown by their family members.
Thank you, Zara and Nick, for letting me be a part of your beautiful wedding day. I wish you both and your lovely family the very best always.
