A little love at Sudbury

Photobooth goals right thuurrrrr

Photobooth goals right thuurrrrr

Elizabeth originally contacted me way back around mid 2017, I was booked for her date and I gave her a few referrals and that was that. Fast forward, she changes her date and venue and 3 weeks before the wedding date she gets back in touch, I’m available and yeeeow the rest is history.

Held at the stunning Sudbury just outside of Wellington and teamed up with some the best vendors in the Wellington region, this was a party for the ages. We smashed out bridal photos in under 10 minutes and Charlie + Elizabeth were back up to the party, to eat, drink and dance the night away.

A few frames from this awesome gig, you beauty!

Squid facts at Makoura Lodge

A little sunset frolic mixed in with a first dance practise with Ali + Tyler.

The Big Fin Squid species has ten arms while all of the others only feature eight of them. They are also all the same length which is interesting because other species feature arms that are of various lengths.

But enough about Squids, Ali + Tyler smashing out a sweet summer wedding at Makoura Lodge. From a little project in their garage to a little sunset bliss. A bit of an axe and a couple frames from their wedding, more to come!

Gingernuts on special at Melody's New World

Pretty much no vendors because they did it all themselves…

This valentines day, head down to Melody’s New World for the special on Gingernuts and coke. Not really, but that’s where Mark met his gingerbird Elle. After a lot of behind the scenes wingmen work by his sisters, boomtown, now they’re married.

Not really any vendors to speak of as Elle’s mum made all the dresses, they got married on her parents farm (paddock to Garden transformation just for the wedding), Mark’s sister did the catering (Crafted and Co) and Elle’s friends did the hair and make up. Such a good day, so much shit talkin’ coming from all sides, just how I like it…oh and here’s a few pics from their backyard wedding, yeeeow!

The rays strike back at Wharerata

February is my peak of the season, and this year is no different with the next 3 weeks of double headers. The first of the double this weekend took me back to Wharerata were Nicky + Nevin held the most relaxed and chilled wedding day. A little bit of Star Wars, a tonne of Tip top Trumpets and a gorgeous sunset, was a treat.

Here’s a few frames from their little beaut of a day.

#SmithenbyPenny in Rotorua

#SmithenbyPenny
As they say back in my homeland. Shit a brick. I travelled up to Mikey + Penelope's wedding held on the backyard of their amazing family farm in the wops just south of Rotorua.

I loved it. No words. Just that.

And holy hecka it’s ridiculous that January is already over! February is a super hectic month for me with 7 weddings and it doesn’t slow down until June, so bare with me, I’m going to be going hundy, if I take a little longer to respond to your email or ya DM’s it’s probably because I’m asleep or hanging with my kids.

Can’t wait for more of the goodness stuff for 2019, yeeeeeow!!!!!!

Christina + Matt | Greenhaugh Gardens

Getting a bit smokey in here with Matt + Christina

I get to shoot at a bunch of locations all over New Zealand, but it’s choice when I have a new hidden gem to explore in my home town. Matt + Christina married at the beautiful curated grounds of Greenhaugh Gardens just outside of Palmerston North. We had a lot of aliexpress, a couple of confetti cannons, a few tears, some nice eye brows and oh a smoke bomb or three.

A quick frame of these two babes getting all smokey in the forest…..

Looking like a piece of art at the Dowse Museum

New Zealand Wedding Photographer David Le Design & Photography

Wellington Anniversary weekend brought me down to the Lime Scooter capital of New Zealand Lower Hutt, specifically the Dowse Art Museum. Hannah and Mike did things their own way and caught up with guest during cocktail hour before the ceremony and married in the courtyard in the heart of the Dowse.

Good wine, great artwork and good vibes, how weddings should be.
