Milk Station goodness for Laura and Garry in Otaki

Having the time of their lives - Laura + Garry

Having the time of their lives - Laura + Garry

Coming into the home stretch of weddings to take me through to mid June and I was back at The Milk Station for Laura and Garry’s bloody brilliant wedding. A huge bridal party, with Bridesman Patty doubling up as celebrant. The giant Chad rocking as MC and little Stanley busting out the greatest tiny dinosaur impressions ever. Oh and Laura, that dress, wowee no words, just that.

A gaggle of sneak peeks, more to come!

An incredible day Penelope and Mikey were surrounded by their nearest and dearest with effortless and simple styling details. We love the natural surroundings of the farm and lake setting making for the perfect backdrop. This wedding was captured beautifully by the talented destination photographer David Le.

A dreamy countryside wedding in Waikite Valley, just south of Rotorua at the Groom’s lakeside family farm.

We absolutely adore Penelope’s Grace Loves Lace off the shoulder dress with beautiful lace detail!!

Jessica + Dylan at the foothills of Mt Ruapehu

Everyone loves a good haka, up the boys!

We’re finally finished up for summer but that doesn’t mean weddings stop. Jess and Dylan got married on the family farm, the morning turned on a blinder of a day, but roll round to the ceremony at the foothills of Mount Ruapehu, and oh lordy did it piss down. About 20 minutes later, a bunch of guests who looked like they had been for a swim in their clothes, the clouds softened and we were back in to the game.

Good yarns, the best hakas, wrong gang affiliation references, paua for days and the biggest Cray I’ve ever seen, here’s a few snaps from their beautiful backyard wedding, check back for a little sneak sneak film too, yeeeow!

Accountants have better work stories, as a Rocketman

February is coming to an end and it’s been hectic. With me travelling all over the North Island, it was nice to get one back in my hometown. Aimee + Philip married at Roseburn PArk (formerly known as Wakefield Lodge) just on the outskirts of Palmy.

A few gnomes, a clothesline of Rosemary Beads and remembering Emily’s dog, it was a beauty of a day. A few snaps from these classy kids wedding.

The fine 9 at the Milk Station, Otaki

New Zealand Wedding Photographer David Le | www.davidle.co.nz

I finally managed to have a Friday off for the first time in the last 6 weeks and that’s because Kelsi + Cam got married on a Thursday, at the beautiful grounds and probably up there with on of my favourite venues in New Zealand, the Milk Station in Otaki.

A little mid ceremony rain, a quarter of a chippie sandwich and a bit of youtube tying tutorials, as always, this wedding was a goodie, a few quick frames from these high school swethearts big day.

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!

#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.
