Weddings are a beautiful mix of love, family, and culture. Eilidh and Liam’s wedding at Mudbrick on Waiheke Island was a perfect example of this, blending their Scottish heritage with the stunning backdrop of New Zealand’s Tāmaki Straight. As a wedding photographer, I have the privilege of capturing these very special moments, but this celebration was truly an unforgettable one!

Embracing Heritage: Bagpipes and Tradition

Eilidh and Liam moved from Scotland to New Zealand, bringing with them the rich traditions of their homeland. The ceremony was beautifully infused with their heritage, beginning with the ethereal sound of bagpipes that set a very special tone. As they exchanged vows, they partook in a traditional Scottish drinking ritual, sharing a special drink from an ornate cup that symbolised their unity and shared journey.
