Alice and Rick's wedding at The Landing, Masterton

What an awesome wedding to kick off the season with! The Landing is a beautiful venue and I was so pleased that Alice and Rick were able to make the most of it. The forecast was pretty rubbish in the run-up to the wedding and it was only at the last minute that it improved, but rain was still forecast for bang on ceremony time. Sure enough it started to spit, and then rain in earnest just after the garden ceremony finished. We were so lucky - after a while we had enough of a pause to do the family shots outside, then more heavy rain, then enough of an improvement to head outside for the bridal party photos. It was still drizzling lightly but Alice announced she was happy to brave the elements, and I quite like the 'fairy dust' effect of the rain in the photos. Thank you Alice and Rick for being so fun to work with, and I wish you all the best for your future together!
