D.I.Y Rustic Bohemian Wedding at Tarureka Estate - Kristen and Glenn

Back in January I photographed this gorgeous wedding and I have been patiently waiting for the right moment to share it with you all.

Kristen and Glenn met in high school and started dating at 17 years old! They decided to get married in Wairarapa at Tarureka Estate.

Their inspiration was rustic, bohemian and D.I.Y, I loved this aspect of the day.  Kristen put so much thought and creativity into her wedding, it felt special to document the efforts she had gone through. The bouquets, cake, reception decor (including the beautiful dream catchers), hair and makeup was all done by the wonderful bride herself. 

I loved the vibe of this wedding. The whole day felt relaxed and fun. We had a bridal shoot before the ceremony, this was all about the bridal party hanging out and having a good time in a beautiful forest setting.
