Dockside Wellington wedding venue - Kath and Anthony

Wellington city has a lot to offer if you’re looking for a wedding venue to host both your ceremony and reception. Dockside is a venue and restaurant located on the edge of the Wellington waterfront. The Main Deck downstairs features an opening roof, so it’s perfect for any weather and large enough to host your ceremony and reception.

Kath and Anthony asked for mostly candid photos throughout their wedding as it was important that they could enjoy these moments with their guests and not feel too distracted by the photos. I was able to focus all of my attention to capturing moments of Kath and Anthony with their families and friends.

After the ceremony I joined guests and the wedding party upstairs for speeches, while the team at Dockside set up downstairs for the reception dinner.

Kath and Anthony picked Dockside as they loved the atmosphere and their food/wine menu. Their theme was minimalist and classic, mostly white with touches of greenery.

We were not after traditional wedding photos and didn’t want to be away from our guests for long to take family pics. Jaymee totally listened to what we wanted and we hardly noticed her roaming around taking photos throughout the night. She was also warm and engaging, we had lots of comments from our guests about how great she was. So happy with our photos! Would recommend Jaymee for your wedding photos, especially if you’re not normally keen on having your photos taken. She captures moments naturally when you’re not expecting it.

If you’re not after full day coverage with all of the bells and whistles, we should talk! Each wedding is unique which is why I offer bespoke photography packages, this makes it easier for couples to find what they are looking for.
