Wai and Cherry at Church Road Winery

Double Happy, Cherry and Wai at Church Road Winery.

It’s not everyday where I shoot a wedding and I have more people who look like me than not. The big and beautiful chinese wedding of Cherry and Wai at Church Road Winery was a goodie. A couple midday tea ceremonies. Plenty of aunties and uncles with their cameras and phones popping up taking snaps. A slideshow business presentation from the maid of honour, three outfit changes and plenty of smile.

Great day on the tools and thanks to my bud Meredith Lord for coming along to shoot with me.

When talented vendors and Waipatiki Beach combine = love

The thing about weddings is you get to meet some wickedly talented creatives.

When Toni, the creative genius behind Magdalen Hill, contacted me and ask if I could be part of this shoot Josie was creating, I couldn’t say no, plus The Pretty Little Details were supplying the cake and donuts and I got to have rbuch and hang out with the talent which is Meredith Lord.

This shoot took the team just a little over a week to set up, but I knew it would come out perfectly even with so little time because I was working with some of the best this industry has to offer.
It always amazes me the talent that these people I work with have and so it was nice to spend the afternoon with these guys and find the time to collaborate..

Here’s our shoot at Waipatiki beach just north of Napier in the Hawke’s Bay, a great spot with some amazing views and some beautiful evening light. Looking forward to working with this talented bunch in the upcoming season!

And along with that you get the opportunity to work with some amazing creatives and vendors, one of them being Jacinda from Pretty Little Details. She makes the most amazing cakes and every wedding she has been involved in has turned to gold.

So it was a nice surprise to find a box of cake goodness she sent, we smashed them back they were so good!! So if you’re on the look out for an amazing cake for your wedding day, look no further than Pretty Little Details!!!

Candice + Henry taking in the views while I catch my breath

As a little rule of thumb to myself, I’ve stopped taking multiple wedding weekends. But along came Candice and her straight good sense of humour and awesome vibes. After a few back and forth emails, I couldn’t say no, and once I met up with Candice and Henry for a brew in Wellington, it just all fell into place.

Fast forward to this past weekend, Hawke’s Bay put on a scorcher of a day and these two good sorts got married at the newly refurbished (and spectacular) Craggy Range Winery.

What I loved most about these two is they’re just real straight up genuine good people. Oh and here’s them at the top of Craggy Range taking in the views and some time to themselves, while I’m catching my breath and sucking in the big ones.

Floral wedding overload at the Old Mill

Sharni + Michael surrounded by freaking amazing floral goodness!

So where to start? So much goodness, not enough words. I got to head up to the Hawke’s Bay for Sharni + Michael’s wedding held at the Old Mill in Napier.

With Sharni being a florist and Michael’s sister being the amazing Toni at Magdalen Hill Florals, plus a bunch more, it’s no surprise there was going to be some amazing florals on display. Pretty Little Details (that cake!) everywhere to be seen, talented awesome friends and vendors and meaning behind everything from the dress to dessert platter, it was hard choosing one frame from the day to share…so here’s two!

I know I say this a lot, but I can’t wait to share more from this wedding, SO. FREAK’N. GOOD!

Confetti for the win…lots and lots of confetti!

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!
