Steph & Kyle | Warm winter promises, partying & people at The Boatshed, Karapiro

Steph & Kyle are two bright humans; eyes sparkly & quick to smile, with laughter never far away. Seeing them together it’s plain to see each is the other’s biggest cheerleader, their greatest fan. The warmth fostered between these two makes being around them such a lovely place to be.

Hē aha te mea nui o te ao?
Hē tangata! Hē tangata! Hē tangata!

Of course, here in Aotearoa, the reality of a winter wedding holds a likelihood of inclement weather but it offered Steph & Kyle the promise of celebrating with all their most favourite people.

What is the most important thing in the world? It is the people, the people, the people!
— Maori proverb

When the day arrived, Steph & Kyle celebrated surrounded by their most dear humans. The morning fog lifted to gift them a beautiful blue sky & that warmth & love I saw in Steph & Kyle was mirrored & echoed through their supporters, family & friends; present in the moment & brimming with gratitude, smiles & affection... What a way to celebrate promises & welcome a new marriage!
