Taranaki Bride of the Year 2015

Every year Taranaki’s brides get a chance, again to wear the dress of their dreams . This year it was held at the TSB Show Place, New Plymouth and  I was hired by Irena Brooks of the Live Magazine to cover this special event.

Gilbert-Smith Dance Trust proudly presented, The Taranaki Bride of the Year 2015, and the Major Sponsors were Dobson’s, Taranaki More FM, TSH Sound, The Marketing Company, Pak’n’Save .

I was hired by Irena Brooks who is the editor of the Live Magazine to photograph this Event for her publication.  The Judges Deb Melody, Terry Parkes and Marnie Johnston- Saywell had their work cut out for them this year. All the girls looked amazing, however, there can only be one Supreme Winner. This year I didn’t fully agree with the results, one of my favorite didn’t even get a place and I’m curious to know why not, she was elegant, stunning and beautiful! Which makes me wonder what the judges are looking for. She certainly had the overall look, hair, dress, personality, her walk was elegant and she smiled beautifully. Hummm, I guess I will never know.

The intertainment on the night was,  “Surfs Up” by Arabella Blowfield, “My Philosophy Imogen Hodge”, “Quirky Birds” and “Salute” by LGS Dancers. They were all fantastic!

It was a amazing night and I thoroughly enjoyed photographing it. I hope you enjoy looking through the slide shows and make up your mind to choose your favorites. If anyone would like to purchase any of the images please contact me helen@helenjoyphotography.com
