Frances & Alex’s Rural Hawkes Bay Wedding

An elegantly refined wedding on France’s family farm in Tikokino, Hawkes Bay.

Frances & Alex met while at the Christchurch medical school and they married on the family farm in Tikokino, where Frances’ family have been sheep and beef farming for the past 117 years!

Such a sense of history surrounded the day with the 100 year old homestead for the guys to get ready at, and the family bungalow setting the stage for their elegant and modern wedding styling, which melded together beautifully. The Hawkes Bay plains made a stunning backdrop as they celebrated with family & friends from near and far. I so enjoyed capturing their day as it naturally unfolded and the farm provided the perfect backdrop for photos.

Their fur baby “Luigi” deserves a special mention and i truly loved working alongside so many amazing local Hawkes Bay Suppliers ( listed below ).
