Henri & Pulu

Old St Pauls & The Pines

If you asked me to describe the perfect wedding day, it would be a mixture of cultures, it would include singing and dancing – lots of dancing – and it would look something like Henri & Pulu’s extravaganza. I never get tired of Siva Samoa!

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!

Sophie & Rory

Tongariro Lodge, Turangi

Sometimes you meet are couple that are so unbelievably lovely, the world would be a better place if everyone could have them in their lives.
Sometimes you meet a couple with a daughter with the same name as your daughter, and it’s like fate brought you together.
Sometimes you meet a couple that are so damn right for each other, it reminds you how beautiful marriage can be.
Sophie & Rory had exactly the wedding they wanted: just their family & a couple of close friends, for a weekend at Tongariro Lodge, and it was perfect. Sometimes it really is.

Melissa & Elliot

Black Barn, Hawke’s Bay

The Black Barn brought the amazing food, the Hawke’s Bay brought the perfect weather, and Melissa & Elliot’s guests from Australia brought the tears and laughter, for the best party the Hawke’s Bay has ever seen. And nothing completes an Australian wedding more than the men dropping their pants during Eagle Rock!

Diana & Tony

Milk & Honey, Hunter Lounge, VUW

Venues: Milk & Honey, The Hunter Lounge (VUW, Wellington)

It’s a great honour to be asked and trusted to photograph a wedding. It’s an even bigger honour when the bride & groom are relatives of previous couples – when we’ve met them and hung out before.

I couldn’t tell you how many weddings we’ve seen Diana & Tony at, and we couldn’t wait to spend more time with them and their family & friends.

Here’s Diana & Tony’s huge celebration!

Hussila & Sameer

Mahatma Gandhi Centre, Auckland

Sameer is one of our oldest friends. Not old in the octogenarian kind of way, rather in the known-a-long-time-and-still-hanging-out kind of way – 18 years after leaving college we’re still friends.

We had the honour of photographing the double wedding of Hussila and Sameer – a traditional Indian ceremony, followed by a civil service.

It was exciting enough to be invited to their beautiful wedding, and an absolute privilege to be asked to photograph it.

Hussila and Sameer, congratulations.

Venue: Mahatma Gandhi Centre (MGC), Auckland

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.

Sarah & Paul

Otaihanga Boating Club, Kapiti Coast

Sarah & Paul were married in a beautifully intimate and personal wedding ceremony in Otaihanga: the venue styled by family; married by an uncle; catered by a sister. Family and friends all chipped in, and followed the ceremony with quite possibly the best 1-2 combination of wedding food: burgers and ice cream.

We then spent the afternoon chasing the even light around Otaihanga and Titahi Bay.

It was a privilege, thanks Sarah & Paul!

Aileen & Kieran

Foxglove, Wellington

This Saturday was a blast. I had sore cheeks by 4pm, and I wasn’t the one meant to be smiling.

I don’t know if it was Aileen’s cats running amok during the morning, the Cardinals beating the Dodgers, those tequila shots during reception, or simply two people in love, but Aileen & Kieran seemed to be having a blast too.

Thanks for kick-starting our wedding season with such a beautiful celebration – congratulations!

Stacy & David

Tarureka Estate – sneak peeks

One of the biggest compliments we can receive is being asked to photograph the sibling of a previous bride or groom.

A few weeks ago we had the privilege of photographing Stacy & David’s wedding at Tarureka Estate? in Featherston.

After photographing Stacy’s brother’s wedding 2 years ago, we knew their family would be kind, welcoming, and plenty of fun.

We weren’t wrong.

I’m 2 weeks late delivering a sneak peek, so here’s 15 of them!

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:

Nikki & Jimmi – Erskine, Island Bay, Wellington

Will you, Jimmi, promise to always reach things off high shelves for her?

Nikki & Jimmi, perhaps mismatched in height, but such a perfect match in so many other ways, married at one of the very last wedding ceremonies Erskine may see. Fascinators and hats, midnight ghost hunts, street signs, handmade stationery and decorations, vintage cars and a beautiful and poignant wedding favours. Tears flowed, laughter followed, and the wedding cake was cut with a sword.

Nikki & Jimmi also featured in one of my NZIPP Award winning prints from IRIS 2012 – more to come on that soon!

(This wedding also featured over on Junebug Weddings this weekend.)

We had the pleasure of working alongside the awesome Jono Tucker, who produced this beautiful cinematic wedding video. We’ll be working with Jono a lot more over the coming summer – watch this space!

So who does wear the pants?

Amanda & Geoff – NZIPP Iris Awards Wedding Album finalist

Boof! POW! Wham.

At the 2012 NZIPP Iris Awards I was looking to enter something a little different. A little unique. A little more rock ‘n roll than a traditional wedding album.

The idea of a comic book came to me, and using Amanda & Geoff’s Wellington wedding I managed to craft a pop-art, stylised comic book artbook. It received a Bronze medal, and placed me as a finalist in the Wedding Album category!

Hope you enjoy the story of Amanda & Geoff’s wedding, as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Thanks Amanda & Geoff!

Hannah & Zac – Erskine, Island Bay, Wellington

There’s always something special when there’s a little one involved. A commitment has already been made, the family is underway, and the beautiful marriage ceremony completes the union.

Part indie & part rock. The Foo Fighters mixed with the Juno soundtrack. Balloons and wind-up toys. Suits & ties and Converse shoes. Hannah & Zac’s style infused throughout the day – and a willingness to have a bit of fun!

To Hannah & Zac & Harry.

Rock on!
