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!

Memories. Moments. Family.

My grandfather passed away last week, quietly, in his sleep, after a battle with illness.

The family were gathered, reminiscing, chatting, remembering all the good times. Then my sister spoke of one of her lasting memories of him: this touching photo that Aneta captured at her wedding. During the post ceremony hugs & kisses, champagne and laughter, they shared this small moment.

Memories. Moments. Family.

This is why we do this.

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.

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:

Jono & Emma – bespoke invitation design

Jono and Emma were really keen to have a photographic invitation. They had hunted around to find vintage clothing in colours to match their wedding colour scheme of maroon and sky blue. One warm mid-winter day we headed out to the Silverstream Railway Museum to take some engagement photos, which set the scene for their vintage travel inspired wedding. More from the wedding coming soon!

The invitation was a simple card incorporating their colour scheme. It featured a collage of the photos on the front and the wedding details on the back. These details included the web address for the wedding website we also created for them. This allowed them to give more information about the wedding day, the bridal party, show off some more of their photos, and even gave their guests a place to register their attendance.

Featured Love

We learnt a lot over the last weekend at the NZIPP Infocus conference. We even managed to pick up a few print awards in the Wedding category (but that’s the subject of another post).

But one of the things highlighted to us was that Kiwis are terrible at SSP – “Shameless Self Promotion”. We’re far too modest to jump around proclaiming how good we are, so this blog post is going to break that mould, just for once!

We’ve been getting a few features on wedding blogs recently, so I thought I would share them with you all.

The Australian bridal blog Polka Dot Bride featured Katrina & Ant’s Erskine wedding yesterday:

Polka Dot Bride

 

The amazing and always beautiful Wedding Chicks blog featured Leigh & Giles’ Wairarapa wedding at Tarureka Estate:
The Wedding Chicks

 

And New Zealand’s very own Wedding Wise featured Nat & Brett’s Wellington wedding:

Enjoy!

Leigh & Giles

You may recognise Leigh & Giles from earlier, here.

You may also recognise Leigh from here.

Or maybe you saw Leigh & Giles’ feature over at Wedding Chicks today here.

Either way, you’ll want to stick around to see a little more – these say more than our words ever could.

Ladies & Gentlemen, the beautiful Leigh & Giles at Tarureka Estate, Featherston. Enjoy!
