I was very impressed with Jill and Gerry's relaxed yet decisive personalities, starting from when Jill first contacted me, when we met for the first time, throughout the Pre-Wedding shoot and during the Wedding itself.
Actually, they seemed to organize everything of their wedding just as naturally and well as they manage the famous 5-star Tongariro Lodge in Turangi.
Both Jill & Gerry came from the Wairarapa and Gerry told me that he wanted a couple of shots with the Tararua Mountain Range as the background, as this would remind him of when he met Jill. And fortunately, we found a perfect spot with this scenery just two minute's drive away from Brackenridge.
Although the weather wasn't perfect on their wedding day, it still showed some mercy to us with the rain easing off whenever we needed to get a particular set of shots. And in the end, the weather didn't matter at all as it was obviously a wonderful day for them and their guests anyway.
I felt privileged to be a part of this Brackenridge wedding.
