First light, Gay Wedding top of The Mount

It’s no secret that New Zealand is a special place bursting with unique scenery and stunning landmarks like Mount Maunganui located in the Bay of Plenty, in the North Island. Wild & Whim and The White Wedding Club put together this styled shoot with some of New Zealand’s finest wedding vendors to showcase this magic spot and to celebrate Australia voting YES to same-sex marriage. They chose to celebrate by creating a beautiful and unique shoot which shows love in one of the most iconic spots in the country.

The talented team of vendors hiked all supplies up to the summit of Mount Maunganui in the dark at 4:00 am! This location, at sunrise made for the perfect setting to celebrate the passing of the Australian law and to celebrate love in all its forms with no boundaries or labels. This was an unprecedented event for the iconic beachside mountain and the vendors received the blessing of the Mauao and local Maori, before setting out to create their magic. Aaron and Shannon who are the duo behind The Official Photographers captured some truly beautiful romantic moments for this real-life Hamilton couple. If you want the quintessential example of a sweet, loving and fun couple then Aaron and Theo are it!
