Shelley and Dean's Waikanae wedding

When I met Shelley and Dean they told me they were petrified of the camera and would be very hard work indeed, but as you can see they lied through their teeth. There was so much happiness and laughter at this wedding, and, as the fridge magnets say, sunshine - not to mention a beautiful garden setting (with lovely, helpful owners), a Vespa, turquoise Converses, a crazy bridal party, a cute ringbearer who had a spot of bother digging out the bling from his deep pockets, a gorgeous beach sunset, some hot dance moves from the groom, and lovely reception staff who made me flat whites (the way to my heart).
