Gear Homestead Wellington Wedding | Jo + Nicola Sneak Peek
This was a very special wedding for myself and my wife Jane. We had met Jo and Nicola while living in Rarotonga in the Cook Islands a couple of years ago. Along the way we all became good friends and shared many good meals and laughs along the way.
When Jo called me out of the blue to ask if we would attend their wedding and if I could photograph it, I only had one answer - absolutely.
The wedding was held at Gear Homestead, just outside of Wellington. Gear Homestead is a beautifully restored old building and a perfect venue for weddings. You can hold the ceremony on the front lawn surrounded by trees, while the reception area on the second floor offers commanding views out over Porirua Harbour. If you are having a lot of friends coming from outside of Wellington, the Aotea Lodge is a 10-minute walk away and has plenty of accommodation (it is where we stayed).
