New Zealand Wedding Photographer David Le Design & Photography

Jumped on that charity bandwagon once again. This time I hung out with the awesome peeps from Civil Defence and got involved in their charity calendar that they’ll be releasing at the end of the year. I took my shot for the calendar plus a few more from the evening out with these super heroes.

Looking forward to seeing what the other awesome photographers create and give a high 5 next time you see one of these volunteer cats doing their thing making our lives safer.

That sweet Palmy rain at Wharerata

Oh my lordy, when Palmy turns it on it really turns it on. It pissed buckets on Saturday but lucky for Sarah + Nav, they planned their wedding inside at the beautiful Wharerata hidden away in the gardens of Massey University.

Chilled, styley and fun loving peeps - more people like Sarah + Nav pretty please x

Oh and here's a quick gazillion multiple exposure wizardry because everyone likes a little Harry Potter magic .... (disclaimer, I have never watched or read Harry bad)

Leonie + Mark and their dog Bruce

The last week of February and the last back to back wedding until December. I spent the day with these babes, and their wickedly lovely and talented friends and family.

They married in the tiniest church in Aokautere and held the party celebrations in the most amazingly setup on the backyard of their beautiful property in the outskirts of Ashhurst.

Can't wait to share more from this beautiful wedding.

Sam + Ruth, a Deloitte-ful wedding

I've been looking forward to this wedding ever since Sam + Ruth got in contact with me back in June last year. The reason being they were having it at the "Chapel in Aranui" easily the best venue in Palmy (it's a cow shed, sooooo good!)

Supported by super talented, super lovely and super generous people, this wedding was the beeees kneeeeees! I went a bit overboard and have thrown up a whole heap of sneaky's, enjoy!!!

Amanda + Hayden's wedding in Pohangina Valley

Amanda + Hayden kicked off my 2018 wedding season. Pohangina Valley treated us to some scorching hot summer sun, buckets and buckets of rain and a whole bunch of thunder and lightning. 

Check out the full preview below!

Summer is finally here....wait a minute

Summer finally arrived in New Zealand in the middle of autumn in April! No cyclones, rain or wind in sight!

Kerrie + Ewen married out at the always beautiful Caroline Creative Interiors in front of a wicked bunch of people from as far as Pohangina and other exotic places. With the best local vendors in Palmy supplying all the goodness. 

Take that autumn, we just gave you the Boutique Bash! Booyah-kasha!

Jacob + Karmin's wedding is now up on the blog!

Jacob + Karmin's wedding is now up on the blog!

When Karmin first contacted me asking if I'd be available to shoot their wedding, I checked my diary, and noticed the date was only 4 weeks away!

Fast forward to the wedding day, the venue had changed, the wedding numbers had increased and Jacob was full guns a blazing setting up the reception venue. But, wow, the effort and work they put in showed, it was amazeballs. Farmers market, food trucks, chinese tea ceremony. This wedding had it all.

Check out the full preview below.
