A wedding on Sevens weekend: Megan and Chris’s, The Boatshed, Wellington.

Megan and Chris had their wedding on Friday February 3, 2012 at The Boatshed, which is at Frank Kits Lagoon on Wellington’s waterfront. Megan got ready at the Wellesley Boutique Hotel.

The ceremony started at 4pm upstairs in the Boatshed function centre. 1/2 of the space was set up as a chapel with chairs facing forward toward the large window looking out over the harbour.

Following the ceremony, we did a group shot of the entire wedding party on the verandah facing the city. It was a really convenient spot to get everyone visible while not having to relocate far. I simply walked around the lagoon and got a vantage on the City to Sea Bridge at around the same level.

A fun part of the wedding photo session was the flash mob of fans that came up from the Rugby Sevens and jumped in a photo.

We weren't sure if these guys realized the wedding atire was not a Rugby Seven's costume, but we just rolled with it!

Another cool thing we planned was to have a photo booth set up next to the reception area by the bar. The benefit of this is that we had a place for people to come, dress up and have fun which adds to the experience for all the guests.
