Pete wore a beautiful feather cloak known as a ‘kakahu’ gifted to him by his family, to wear at the wedding ceremony. This wedding was also on Easter weekend, so the wedding favours were Cadbury Cream Eggs and there was a sweet table with Easter chocolates.   0316_Pete_&_Ellie_Wedding_Fitzleroi_Barn_Pulborough_Sussex

We had a little wander in the rape field next to the barn to capture some of that rich yellow that is always scattered through the English countryside at this time of year. The yellow crop rape rubs off its pollen onto anything it touches, so we had to tread carefully.

And in the later evening, we had some surprise Maori dancers, who performed dances and songs for the crowd, including the famous ‘Haka’. I love the gentleman watching in the background, dressed in his kilt, bow tie and drinking a nice cup of tea… 1098_Pete_&_Ellie_Wedding_Fitzleroi_Barn_Pulborough_Sussex
