The Wedding of Chris & Anna

Posted by Simon Waterhouse

I don’t shoot alot of weddings these days, which is probably a good thing. Weddings can be pretty full on and stressful, so shooting less means when I do shoot a wedding, I enjoy it alot more. In November 2010 I photographed the wedding of Chris & Anna, which turned out to be a lot of fun. They tied the knot in a tiny chapel in Little Akaloa on Canterbury’s Banks Peninsula – we photographed some bits and pieces in the bay, and then Chris surprised the wedding party with the arrival of two helicopters to collect them (and the photographer) and drop us on the spectacular heads of the Akaroa Harbour. Below is a very small selection of the images I took.
