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!

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!

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.

Little forest gem at Tatum Park

The thing about weddings in New Zealand is that the weather can be shit no matter what the season or time of year. Classic NZ turned it on for Kahli + Ricky’s forest wedding held at a hidden gem just outside of Otāki. The forecast was for 90% rain, the rain came just before the ceremony, but then with a few lucky prayers it held off for the ceremony and even got a sneak of that sweet summer heat.

Here’s a sneaky sneak from Kahli + Ricky’s forest wedding, inspired by a whole lot of pinterest and good old Aliexpress, yeeeeow!
