“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.

Polly + Rhys, looking bloody stunning!

Was back at it again for another Stills X Motion collab with the brother Sink or Surface at what is arguably the best wedding venue in New Zealand, The Milk Station in Otaki.

Polly and Rhys, two bloody fine looking specimens married with their finest friends and whanau they could physically squeeze in. Summer was well and truly gone, but these two where smokin’ hot. Confetti cannons, smoke bombs and a frenchie - so good! Can’t wait to share more of these beauties soon, ka kite!

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!!

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.

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!
