Peter and Ashley Dowzall's Wedding

On the 19th of March, 2017, my sister Ashley and her fiancee Peter Dowzall got married. Naturally they picked me as their photographer – and not just for convenience!

The special event was held at Ohiwa Beach Holiday Park, a neat little spot nestled in the Ohiwa Harbour at the base of the Onekawa Pā. The natural backdrops of the beach and the harbour provided a stunning and unique location for our portraits.

The nearby settlement of Kutarere provided the characterful church that also featured. The caretaker even mowed the grass for us!
