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!

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

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.

Rebecca & Mike

Martinborough Hotel, Wairarapa

Rebecca and Mike brought their family & friends over to Martinborough for Mike’s birthday. Just a casual birthday celebration at the Martinborough Hotel.

SURPRISE!!! Wedding time!

Tears flowed, wine was consumed, fun was had, and to top if off, there was even birthday cake. :) 🎂

Venue: Martinborough Hotel

Lucy & Ants

Worser Bay Boat Club, Wellington

Have you ever seen anyone enjoy their wedding day more than Lucy & Ants? Smiles and laughter and love ALL DAY & NIGHT LONG.

With possibly the loveliest friends you could meet, the greatest taste in music, they achieved the greatest transformation of the Worser Bay Boat Club and celebrated in style.

Oh, and Lucy designed and crafted their wedding rings. Yeah, you read that right.

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!

This is their day.

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.

Veronica & Deon

Black Barn, Havelock North, Hawke’s Bay

What I remember most from Veronica & Deon’s wedding is the celebrations. The laughter. The fun. The love. The Singapore wedding toast, delivered by Wei and Rob.

This was no ordinary wedding toast.

Here’s to a blissful marriage, eternal love, and fertility.

Yum seng!

Venue: Black Barn
Celebrant: Father Kevin
Tears: Veronica & Deon’s own

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
