Wairarapa Weddings

Ryan + Charlotte wedding at Poppies Martinborough

Winter weddings in New Zealand. You get dreamy blue hour light after sunset, the skies and clear and the full woollen suits actually make sense to wear. Back at it again with another Stills + Motion collab with Sink or Surface.

Ryan + Charlotte, looking dapper, married in the tiny church that is Burnside and partied the night away at the beautiful Poppies in Martinborough.

So many goodies to share, so little time…check back for full blog post

Meredith + Braeden winter wedding at Tarureka Estate

Braeden + Meredith soaking in that sweet winter light

Winter, when you get to rug up warm, wear cardigans and snuggle in front of the fire. And that’s what Meredith and Braeden did for their winter winter at Tarureka Estate. So relaxed, so much chill and a lot of singing and rapping by the ladies made for a stellar day in the Wairarapa.

Here’s a few frames from their sweet day under the winter sun, so good!

Huggles at Orui Station, Riversdale

Orui Station under the stars

March has beeeeen hectic, a couple weddings that ran over a hour late, some torrential rain and bad stuff in the world. Sooooo was awesome to finally be able to settle back into normal transmission. Aleisha and Hugo’s beach side wedding was held at Orui Station in the back blocks of Riversdale Beach about a hours drive from Masterton.

Stunningly styled, from the hand made tables, to the family tradition of building the archway to the funky surprise denim jacket from Aleisha’s maid of honour.

Check out a few snaps from this beautiful New Zealand wedding!

I love weddings!

I’ve had a busy off season with commercial work, charity and the odd wedding, but I’m pumped for the upcoming summer where I get to smash out some more awesome. Hanging with choice couples, working along side some super talented vendors and travelling around to some sweet locations around New Zealand.

If you’re wedding is coming up, I’m looking forward to being a part of your big day! And if you’re looking at getting married or eloping or have some choice creative event you want covered, give me a buzz, let’s make awesome! Yeeeeeeow!

Victoria + Sam // Brackenbridge Country

I don't really have a "wedding season" that I work too, which means I shoot weddings all year round, in all weather conditions that little old New Zealand throws at us.

Victoria + Sam got married on a brisk winters day, down in the Wairarapa utilising some of the best venues, all mixed in with sun, rain, wind and fog. The ceremony + reception was held at Brackenbridge Estate, we did the first look at Burnside Church and drove into the back blocks of Pirinoa to Pallisters Ridge for the bridal photos.

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.
