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!

Chloe & Carter

Whitemans Valley

Chloe & Carter were married, in the middle of winter, on Chloe’s family farm in Whiteman’s Valley.

No *ahem* fake wedding barn here – this was an authentic, working, careful-where-you-stand, sheep shearing shed.

Chloe’s family are renowned for their infamous Whitemans Valley parties, and this evening was no exception.

Congrats Chloe & Carter!

Rosie & Neil

Old St Pauls & The Boatshed, Wellington

Marry Me! Marry Me, my wonderful, darling friend.” ~ Jane Austen

We loved Rosie’s gift to Neil: Ron Swanson inspired Lagavulin scotch whisky.
We loved Rosie & Neil’s love of books and literature.
We loved Rosie & Neil’s appreciation of architecture, archways, and silhouettes.
We loved Rosie & Neil’s walking bus to their reception.
We loved Rosie & Neil’s homebrew – something borrowed, something brewed.
We loved Rosie & Neil’s infectious smiles, and their guest’s willingness to have a great time.
We loved Rosie & Neil’s style.
But most of all, we loved Rosie & Neil’s love for each other.

As Rosie said to Neil, “Plan A was marrying you a long time ago.” It was meant to be.

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!

Venue: Foxglove
Florist: Best of the Bunch
Celebrant: Miranda Grange
Catering: Foxglove, Wellington

2014 NZIPP Wedding Album of the Year

Rachel & Sam

In addition to the Wedding – Classic category, Jason also took home the trophy for Wedding Album of the Year.

The judges called it “great photography meets great design“, and that’s something we pride ourselves in. It’s even in our name! We’re not just photographers, we’re an all-round creative team, and every aspect of our presentation is carefully considered.

 

As with previous years (2012, 2013) we’re always aiming to create something different, something unique, something not seen before.

Rachel & Sam’s theatrical wedding was an obvious choice, even before we’d started on the design, and during brain-storming and concepts, we started creating the idea of a movie/theatre “storyboard”.

The following design was born. Rachel & Sam, in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream“.

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!

Paul & Trent – Making History in Wellington, NZ

Because of you no dreams can ever splinter

To fragments, you are the magic that bonds each part.

Paul & Trent, one of the very first same-sex couples to be married in New Zealand, after the passing of the marriage equality bill. This is marriage equality history.

All we are doing with this bill is allowing two people who love each other to have that love recognised by way of marriage.

Here are two people in love. Enjoy.

Ceremony and Details photographer: Penny @ Inspire Photography

Creative and Reception photographer: Jason @ WE DO Photography & Design <- that’s us!

Videography: Jono @ Jono Tucker Photo & Film

Photobooth: Dion @ The Amazing Travelling Photobooth

Planning: Paula @ Paula Bevege Events

 

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.
