Christchurch Wedding with Sarah and Savo. Sarah and Savo's wedding was the first Christchurch wedding I have photographed in the Hagley Park Botanical Gardens. The Botanical Gardens is a beautiful outdoor wedding venue to exchange vows at, assuming you have good weather.
The day dawned bright and clear and by mid-morning the sun was blazing. Ideal for a picturesque garden wedding, but not so ideal for photographs. Mottled light - a mix of sun and shade - is some of the hardest light to photograph in as the contrast range challenges even the most sophisticated digital camera sensors.
After the short ceremony, the small wedding party moved to Rosebank Winery wedding venue for a celebratory lunch.
