Donna & Scott

Tarureka Estate, Featherston

Donna & Scott, getting married at Tarureka Estate. Donna & Scott did 4 of my favourite things at weddings: 1) they involved their kids; 2) they got married at one of our all-time favourite venues; 3) they included the Kombibooth, which is the second-most fun you can have in a stationery vehicle; and 4) they brought all the emotions to the party. This is how you do weddings!

Venue: Tarureka Estate
Catering: Chef On Demand

Charlotte & Peter

Castlepoint, Wairarapa

Charlotte grew up in the Castlepoint area, so this location was completely apt for their wedding.
This working woolshed was completely transformed, Peter hunted the game for their meal, and they threw the biggest party in town.

Venue: Woolshed, Castlepoint

Jess & Hayden

Lacewood Tuhitarata Estate, Wairarapa

After Sarah & Mike’s wedding a couple of years ago, it was an absolute honour to be asked to photograph Mike’s sister’s beautiful wedding at Lacewood.

Jess and Hayden made this day their own: a westernised wedding on the lawn; followed by a traditional Chinese tea ceremony; cocktails and canapés with their guests; rip-roaring speeches; and hard partying through the rest of the night.

Congrats to Jess & Hayden, it was an honour, we loved spending time with both you and your families.

Jess & Hayden’s wedding is also featured over on one of NZ’s best wedding blogs: Paper & Lace.

Greer & Caleb

Tarureka Estate, Featherson

What the boy felt at that moment was that he was in the presence of the only woman in his life. He was more certain of it that anything in the world. And that with no need for words, she recognised the same thing.

Greer & Caleb at Tarureka Estate. Page 1 of Chapter 2.

Simply a perfect day.

Videography: Photo & Film by Jono Tucker

Complimenting our photographic coverage was the always-awesome Photo & Film by Jono Tucker, take a few minutes to watch his cinematic film, we dare you not to shed at least a small tear:

Lizzy & Luke

Lizzy & Luke, celebrating with their closest family & friends.

And some chickens, geese, sheep, some goats and a peacock or two. And a laughing donkey.

The Staglands Wildlife Reserve is officially the most fun you could possibly have for a wedding. The most fun. Ever.

The Wellesley Country Park down the road from Staglands also provided a stunning reception venue, to compliment the rustic outdoors charm of this spring wedding. Lizzy & Luke, this was awesome!
