The Wedding

Here is a quiet moment I captured of my son and his new bride.

The wedding was a wonderful occasion, and from many photos to pick from I decided to show you this one.

It was held at StonyRidge Vineyard on Waiheke Island in Auckland at 5pm. After a wet day the rain stopped by 4pm and never returned. It was a lovely warm evening. And we all enjoyed ourselves.

Waiheke Island is a 40 minute boat trip from Auckland City. And our whole family rented a house on the island for 6 nights.

You can see our whole family, minus the youngest child, as a Workshop. We have 4 sons and one daughter, 4 daughter-in-laws, 4 grandsons and 2 granddaughters.

I love the mood that you have catpured here: the closeness of the couple emphasized by the great frond that curls around the bride and seems to tuck them in closer.

Congratulations Janice! First of all for your sons wedding and may they have a great life together. Also the photo is excellent, very sharp, well exposed, natural colors and details.

Hi Janice and welcome back. I hope your road to full recovery is rapid. A lovely image of the happy couple and very well composed. Good colour and light and I can see the adoration on their faces. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘For Janice’. A long time now Janice in terms of the electronic media anyway. GET WELL!!

Hello Janice,
it is the photography of happiness, that of the young couple and that of the mom who can immortalized this beautiful moment.
The colors are very beautiful, and the choice of the palm tree with in background the landscape with far is excellent.

All my wishes with the young husbands. And you I hope that your health will be better and that one will be able to find you in full form soon

Hi Janice, hope you are feeling strong! Thanks for sharing your family photo. You are blessed with and have a lovely looking family. As an image it is 'strong'. Strong emotion, feminine strong 'arm' and a strong curve up her arm and across the palm leaf and down the trunk of the tree. I like it, a pleasently origional wedding picture. Cheers, Karey

Splendid capture of a tender moment between the newlyweds, Janice. I think it'd look better without the leftmost 1cm, though. There's a bright part that I find somewhat distracting, as it's a look-through.
Apart from that, I think you used the palm tree well as a natural framing.

How very nice Janice. What a wonderfull couple. Good natural colouring, excellent POV and lovely PP work. TFS,

Congratulations to your son on his wedding day. This is a very nice portrait of the lucky couple. Nice to see all the family in the workshop photo.

Congratulations and my best wishes to the newly wed couple! :))

However did I miss this photo, and the one of the whole family? I love the palm behind them in this a beautiful photograph and special memory, sorry I missed it earlier!
