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!

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.

Mikalah + Rory at Makoura Lodge

I headed back out to the back blocks of the Manawatu to Makoura Lodge in Apiti, New Zealand for the wedding of Mikalah and Rory. But instead of taking photos, I switched my tools over and shot a little film.

Make a cuppa, grab some snacks and sit back and check out their sweet wedding day at Makoura Lodge!

Polly + Rhys, looking bloody stunning!

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!

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!

Lisa + Callum and a little baby bump

I’m about halfway through wedding season. It’s been an eventful month and quite mentally draining. My heart goes out to the innocent people lost in Christchurch and all the people who have been affected by such a horrible tragedy.

In amongst it all though, I still need to be a dad, go about my day to day tasks and also keep taking photos, and in some cases this helps me focus on the good and love that still is around us everyday.

Lisa and Callum, too beautiful souls, two loved up people and one beautiful baby bump. All the best for the upcoming birth and hopefully we can provide a better future for our littles ones.

Jessica + Dylan at the foothills of Mt Ruapehu

Everyone loves a good haka, up the boys!

We’re finally finished up for summer but that doesn’t mean weddings stop. Jess and Dylan got married on the family farm, the morning turned on a blinder of a day, but roll round to the ceremony at the foothills of Mount Ruapehu, and oh lordy did it piss down. About 20 minutes later, a bunch of guests who looked like they had been for a swim in their clothes, the clouds softened and we were back in to the game.

Good yarns, the best hakas, wrong gang affiliation references, paua for days and the biggest Cray I’ve ever seen, here’s a few snaps from their beautiful backyard wedding, check back for a little sneak sneak film too, yeeeow!
