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!

Wallaceville House, Wellington
Phoebe & Nick were married in a Humanist ceremony outdoors at Wallaceville House.
This is their story.
Sacred Heart & Te Papa, Wellington
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.
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.
The Lodge, Pauatahanui
Amy & Tim were married at the beautiful Lodge At The Inlet, Pauatahanui.
I could have blogged the whole wedding. You’re lucky I stopped at 100 photos.
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!
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!
Breaker Bay, Wellington
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!
Wow. What a stunner. Here’s some teasers of our weddings, as shared all through the summer on Facebook. More to come!
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.
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:
Claire & Nick were recently married at Zealandia. We were privileged enough to be asked to capture their wedding. It was as awesome as it looks – more soon.
A few cheeky preview images from Greer & Caleb’s Tarureka Estate wedding last year. More soon!
Summertime holidays at Ruakaka beach with the Evans and Martin families. No internet access. No deadlines. Sun. A few cheeky homebrews. More sun. Refreshed and ready for 2013 – here we come!
“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.)
Erskine, we’ll miss you.
“I not only love Verity with all of my heart, but I love loving her.”
Under a large tree, in front of their closest friends & family, amongst the vines of one of the greatest wineries in Martinborough, we witnessed Verity and Nathan’s wedding.
Here is their story.
(this wedding also featured this week on Love My Way)
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?
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!
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.
Coming soon, a little more from Hannah & Zac’s Erskine wedding.
There’s a lot of beautiful venues in the Wairarapa, but none may be quite as special as Kowhiti House. For Josephine & Thomas, returning from the UK, it was the perfect spot to spend a few days with close friends and family and celebrate their marriage. For their guests, the perfect spot for a fantastic day and an even more amazing night.
Ladies & Gentlemen, Josephine & Thomas!
