New Zealand Winter wedding goodness at Makoura Lodge

They already had a Foote in the door, so they made it a Shaw thing at Makoura Lodge.

I kicked back into my New Zealand wedding season with the winter wedding of Victoria and James out at the always good Makoura Lodge.

Plenty of rain, a tonne of dark clouds but a whole heap of morale boosted the spirits and smiles pumping all day long. If this the first wedding back from my little break then I can’t wait to get stuck in for the rest of the season.

Here’s a few pics of their beautiful wedding.

PS rule no.1 it’s your wedding day, if you want to have or do something, then do it, don’t let anybody talk you out of it!!!

Polly + Rhys

Rhys and I met online (before Tinder) and from our very first date he had me in fits of laughter. A few wines later, I found myself piggy backed along the Wellington waterfront by this gorgeous, incredibly funny guy, I’d met just hours before. The rest they say is history…see the full feature

“We have actually been best friends since we were 15 years old. We both grew up in Wellington with the same friends group, and created a loving supportive friendship we both grew to rely on over the years. It wasn’t until we both lived in London did we decide to take a leap of faith and risk our friendship to see if there was something “more” between us…”

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!

On the rark in Whanganui with Harriet and Lindsay

Was back on the rark in the back blocks of Whanganui country out in the wops in Upopkongoaro. Lindsay and the lads were the most kiwi blokey bloke male NZ farmers you’d ever come across (Tux wonder dogs + Speights + Stubbies and Redbands type) and Harriet was an amazingly beautiful bride, that Kenneth Wilson dress was woweee material.

Wangaz put on a stunner of a day, we explored the family farm and plenty of bottles of liquor were consumed. Here’s a few snaps from this stunning of a rural New Zealand wedding.

Stone the flamin’ crows.
