Belinda & Andrea's wedding

Belinda and Andrea live in his home country of Italy and came back to New Zealand to get married, bringing with them eight wonderfully crazy Italians who added a great atmosphere to this wedding! Belinda and her bridesmaid (also called Belinda, so that was easy: we just referred to them as B1 and B2) got ready at the bride's parents' home in Judgeford, and the ceremony was held in the beautiful St Alban's in Pauatahanui, a little timber Gothic Revival church. The photos were taken at a lovely little vineyard nearby, and the reception was held at The Lodge at the Inlet, where Karyn looked after everyone in style. I loved how Belinda and Andrea had matched all the little details for their wedding: the red gerberas, the the ties and waistcoats, the red Italian alligator-leather shoes, and even the best man's sunglasses!
