Niki and Steve's wedding at Erskine

I just loved this wedding. Niki is elegance personified and also has a great eye for detail (she teaches graphics and design, so it's perhaps not surprising). Everything from the asymmetrical strap she added to her wedding dress down to the gorgeous floral arrangements on the reception tables (which included sprays of common weeds) was a pleasure to photograph. Niki and Steve were married at Wellington's historic Erskine College, and in fact had the honour of being the second-to-last couple to be married there before the building, which is an earthquake risk, was shut down. They are very down-to-earth people and declined the opportunity to be married in Erskine's beautiful chapel, preferring the more relaxed feel of an outdoor wedding in the venue grounds. Likewise, instead of a formal end to the wedding meal they went for an icecream sundae bar, which was a complete hit with the guests!
