Christchurch Wedding with Ruth & Mike

Christchurch Wedding with Ruth & Mike, at Ferrymead Heritage Park.

I met Ruth and Mike earlier in the year. When they told me they were getting married at Ferrymead Heritage Park and that it was an early 1900s township, I knew I had to go out and have a look around prior to the wedding.

Given my love for things that aren’t too modern – like our Formica table or my film cameras – I instantly fell in love with the Heritage Park, as I wandered around getting a feel for the place.

The church is a wonderful old building, complete with wooden pews, wooden floor and beautiful tall windows. Then there is the old shops around town, the tram line and my favourite, The Friendly Societies Lodge Hall. This makes for a great wedding venue reception, as it is a 300-metre walk from the church and has a great 1970s feel to it. Ruth’s family decorated the hall with lots of beautiful lanterns, which looked amazing later on in the night as the lights were dimmed.

Apart from hiring me as their Christchurch wedding photographer, Ruth and Mike also hired a photo booth from Classic Photo Booths.

Okay, I’ll be the first to admit it – photo booths are a LOT of fun. There is nothing like a bit of a party to get people in the mood for some self portraits, with say a horses head on (see photo far below).

All up, a wonderful wedding to photograph. Big thanks to Ruth and Mike for hiring me as their Christchurch wedding photographer.

Thomas.
