The story of Kyle & Tiffanie's Beach Wedding by the Penguin Colony, Caroline Bay, Timaru
The weather during the day had been terrible with gale force winds and the threat of rain looming. Most of NZ had been hit by the tail end of a cyclone but the sun gods shone bright for Kyle and Tiffanies 6:00pm wedding. A bit of wind still whipped through but it was a hundred times better than it had been hours before.
A simple but lovely set up brought in the colours black, white, red and blue for their beach wedding. A carved love heart and signing table was created for our ceremonial space.
Their Saturday started with showers, that teased us on and off during the morning. By lunchtime the skies had cleared to reveal a beautiful, bright sun with fluffy white clouds.
This loving couple had set their wedding ceremony scene on top of the Caroline Bay Lookout. This lookout gave us glorious views of the Pacific Ocean, the Southern Alps Mountain Range, Timaru township, the penguin colony and our working Port. The workings at the port seem to cease during the ceremony so the sounds of seagulls and waves became our background music.
