Hannah and Tom’s Wedding

Hi Everyone,

Here some highlights of Hannah and Tom’s beautiful wedding.

The ceremony took place at one of my favourite churches in Wellington, The Sacred Heart Cathedral.

The reception and photo shoot took place at the picturesque setting of Ohariu Farm. This venue does not only shine with its rolling hills and amazing evening sun but also offers an increasingly beautiful reception venue. Thanks for having us Jude!

Hannah and Tom have been together for around 10 years already and have now tied the knot to celebrate their love for each other with their closest family and friends. It was a magical day for everyone!

To the topic bridesmaids, I have to say Hannah had the sweetest and most helpful bunch. We were joking on the day how she must have had the criteria of “You’ve got to be blonde and look like you could be my sister!” when she made her choice in that. These girls were just great together which is something I wanted to capture for them..

Enjoy their wedding day stills:

Snuggle up with your sunshine on dark and rainy days like these!

Hi Everyone,

It’s been days and days of rain and I feel that it’s really starting to affect people’s moods!

So I took on the wee mission of digging into my stacks of gorgeous shots that may lift your spirits a bit..

I found this magical image of Meghana with her partner that reminded me that rainy days can also be a fantastic days!

Days to stay in together, put the fire on, cook something warming and do the dance of life and romance together. The world can take a spin without you for a day, I’m sure!

To all those beautiful couples out there. Enjoy and have a happy rainy Thursday!

Marisa and John’s Wedding

Hi There

Marisa and John’s wedding was a few weeks ago. I joined them just before the ceremony at The Boatshed and it was great to see the mingling of cultures…The Cook Islanders where present and reflected Marisa’s side of the family and the Irish flew in for John’s. So really nice to hear the different accents. Combined with my Giwi-accent (aka German Kiwi) we had a lot of fun trying to understand each other…haha.

Everything was buzzing and full of life giving me loads of candid moments to capture….so let’s take a look and get a feel for their day..

 

The littlies arrived and hit it off with this cute-as giggling session..

Interestingly enough I also found the time to photograph birds (outside of the wedding love birds ;-) I had a few moments in between so kept my eyes open and connected with those seagulls..

Claire and Mark’s Wedding at Tarureka Estate

Hi All

What a fantastic wedding season this year. Today I want to show you how Claire and Mark spent their St Patrick’s Day this year….they tied the knot at Tarureka Estate in Featherston.

Everything about this gorgeous wedding was about the detail. There was not one stone unturned and no thought and wish unfulfilled in my opinion. It took two of us to capture the depth of this wedding to it’s fullest… From custom bridesmaids bags to stunning scrapbooking and handmade doors signs. Claire and Mark together with their family and friends had a fantastic and unforgettable time creating this weekend of a lifetime to celebrate the love for each other.

With these words in mind, let’s look at some beautiful proofs..

A small and very intimate ceremony at their family’s bach in the Queen Charlotte Sounds which was just the start….so let’s show you some of those amazing images.

The jetty all made up for the ceremony was the first thing I saw when I arrived in our (rescue) dinghy..(long story!)

The way it was made up must have been an inspiration from a fairytale I thought.

Nivea and Troy’s Wedding Day

Hello Everyone

Today I’d like to share Nivea and Troy’s day with you. They celebrated the wedding a few weeks ago. It was an amazing warm sunny day, just perfect for the two of them and their big wedding. Everything was buzzing and whereever I looked where things happening.

Nivea got ready with her five bridesmaids and her flower girls in the Kingsgate Hotel which is nice and close to their church The Old St Paul’s cathedral. I think we literally took up one entire floor of the hotel as there were just so many of us…it was lots of fun and added to the excitement and buzz..

Let’s show you some of the shots I took during the getting ready..

Nivea is one of those super women…gorgeous and smart. She wore this really nice silk dress during the getting ready which suited her so well…here some glimpses of her beauty.
