It might be late but I couldn’t wait to share this beautiful Homegrown Love of of Leigh and Katie.  Flick the kettle on, grab a cuppa and enjoy the rest of your evening taking in these gorgeous moments caught through the lens by the Bayly & Moore Photography

Here are a few words from Katie to sum up their day;

‘It was a very home made wedding, with lots of help from our amazing friends and family. The flowers were planted, dried and arranged by Leigh’s mum. The marquee was designed and made by Leigh, his brother and father (made from bamboo we all harvested from the farm!). The venue was at the old wool shed on Leigh’s family farm on the west coast of Awhitu peninsula and we married in the local historical church (Awhitu Church).  My parents helped raise the sheep for dinner, which a family friend prepared and Leigh’s step mother made the desserts. Friends and family helped to make everything from the trestle tables to the bunting. Plates and cutlery were bought from charity op shops. I made my own cake and my mum prepared all of the snacks. My dress, something I did not attempt myself was made by Alarobe and the veil is a 180 year old hand made french lace family heirloom that my mother also wore. We had an amazing band called the Hipstamatics and of course Bayley and Moore our wonderful photographers. It was such an amazing day made with so much love from our friends and family. Genuinely the best day of our lives!’
