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.

Lizzy & Luke

Lizzy & Luke, celebrating with their closest family & friends.

And some chickens, geese, sheep, some goats and a peacock or two. And a laughing donkey.

The Staglands Wildlife Reserve is officially the most fun you could possibly have for a wedding. The most fun. Ever.

The Wellesley Country Park down the road from Staglands also provided a stunning reception venue, to compliment the rustic outdoors charm of this spring wedding. Lizzy & Luke, this was awesome!
