Lisa and Jason's wedding at Foxglove, Queens Wharf

I reckon if I were getting married these days, Foxglove down on Wellington's waterfront would have to be pretty high on my list of venues. The Queens Wharf Ballroom looked so beautiful for Lisa and Jason's wedding ceremony, and then the staff transformed it again for the reception dinner while the guests were all enjoying drinks and nibbles in the stylish Foxtail champagne and cocktail bar next door (which you access from the main bar by stepping into a 1930s oak wardrobe!). Lisa and Jason's wedding was a wonderfully relaxed affair, and they chose to maximise their time with their guests by having what the Americans call a 'first look' - seeing each other before the ceremony. It was a windy day and we managed to find some sheltered spots around Te Papa for the photographs, aaand ... some not so sheltered spots.
