Love can make you do crazy things ...like exchanging your vows underwater in a fish tank! When I got the call from the Breeze Radio Station asking if I would take part in an underwater wedding as their photographer, I thought yes!! Something a bit different, I'm always up for a challenge! Because the ceremony started at 5.30pm Jay & Emma decided it was best to start the day with photos first, so we took a stroll to Whirinaki beach, where we were lucky enough to capture the beautiful colours and tones of golden hour before sunset. The ceremony & reception took place at the National Aquarium of NZ and I must say, I was immensely blown away with the efforts the creative team & planners, put into creating this special day. Jay & Emma couldn't get in that tank fast enough to say their I WILLS's, or should I say hold up their I WILL signs as words cant be spoken underwater! I loved everything about this day, but there was one hilarious moment that happened while we were at the beach, and I can laugh because Jay & Emma thought it was funny ..lets just say we were misled by how big the waves really were, and when Justin from the Breeze yells out WAVE!..You don't ignore him.. You run! lol. .Jay and Emma I cant think of a more deserving couple to win this competition. You two are both quite spectacular, you were so grateful, appreciative and easy to get along with. Even though the lead up to the wedding was shared with everyone across social media , the radio station, even Television, you still managed to be yourselves, and stay true to what this day was really about, which is two people, celebrating their love for each other...in a tank...with the fish. xx
