Blue Baths Rotorua Wedding | Government Gardens Wedding | Hilary & Stephen


Hilary was surrounded by her family and bridesmaids, parents and siblings on a house with a stunning view of the Rotorua lake and farmland. It was the day of her wedding.

Hilary and Stephen had been dating for some time and Hilary thought of this during the relaxed, sunny morning of December 16th. Happy tears came through as Hilary finally revealed her dress and the family radiated pride, ready to accompany her to her wedding day.

Stephen was waiting for Hilary at the Rotunda. The flower girl graced the aisle. The bridesmaids walked through a flurry of bubbles that the flower girl had left in her wake. As Hilary stepped out, clutching her fathers hand, nervousness and excitement hit all that were witnessing this moment. Stephen saw her and could not hold back his tears. As Hilary reached his side their rings were passed around the guests to be blessed. It was a beautiful ceremony on a beautiful day.

The ceremony was held at Rotorua's Government Gardens and some photos were also taken at the Princes Gate Hotel. The reception close by at the Blue Baths where singing and dancing were held and laughter was had.

Thank you for letting us capture you're beautiful day Hilary and Stephen, we wish you all the best for your futures together!
