“We’ve been hoarding naked and semi-naked cake images over the last few months because, well, who doesn’t love a bit of cake spam! Our Insta feeds are filled with amazing creations from some of our fave cake makers on the daily so we thought why not contribute to the sugar overload with this roundup”
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!

There is a secret hidden gem right in the heart of Palmy and it happens to be part of IPU in Aokautere. Swan House was the venue for the sweetest little wedding of Aaron and Rebekah. Outdoor lounging, trays of glorious Crafted n Co Fried Chicken, and the widest, lowest Porsches you ever did see.
Great day with great people and an awesome reminder that the world is a good place!
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!
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!
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.

I missed the boat with the Best 9 thing, but I love all my couples and the weddings I shot, so here they are, check out the link below for some of my favourite shots from all my weddings from 2018 (plus a couple sneaky end of 2017 after xmas ones).
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!!!!!!
