Country practicality took over during Saturday's wedding of retired All Black hooker Andrew Hore and Francine Lister at their Patearoa farm.

While making their way to one of the sites for the wedding photographs, through high tussocks and speargrass, the bride's high-heeled shoes made walking difficult, so the groom picked her up and carried her.

Photographer Barbara Newton, of Dunedin, said the couple ''just took off'' and she had to run to keep up before snapping the photograph of the newlyweds.

The afternoon ceremony, held on the front lawn of Hore's ''Hot Friday'' property, was followed by a woolshed party with about 100 guests.

Several All Blacks attended, including Richie McCaw, who flew the bride in a helicopter from Wedderburn to the ceremony, Tony Woodcock, who was a member of the wedding party, and coach Steve Hansen.

The newlyweds have a son together, Tyrell James Hore, who is almost a year old.

Hore (35), who played 83 matches for the All BLacks, retired last November.
