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!

Sarah and Kieran's Old Church Wedding, Napier

Weddings should be a big party which involves two families, some yummy drinks, quality food and two people who happen to be saying I Do.

That’s exactly what Sarah + Kieran’s wedding was on the weekend at The Old Church in Napier, Hawke’s Bay. Another crammed packed wedding, these guys had the dancefloor going off. Can’t wait to share more of these laid back kids and their dog Frankie!
