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!

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!

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!

A little love at Sudbury

Photobooth goals right thuurrrrr

Photobooth goals right thuurrrrr

Elizabeth originally contacted me way back around mid 2017, I was booked for her date and I gave her a few referrals and that was that. Fast forward, she changes her date and venue and 3 weeks before the wedding date she gets back in touch, I’m available and yeeeow the rest is history.

Held at the stunning Sudbury just outside of Wellington and teamed up with some the best vendors in the Wellington region, this was a party for the ages. We smashed out bridal photos in under 10 minutes and Charlie + Elizabeth were back up to the party, to eat, drink and dance the night away.

A few frames from this awesome gig, you beauty!

Gingernuts on special at Melody's New World

Pretty much no vendors because they did it all themselves…

This valentines day, head down to Melody’s New World for the special on Gingernuts and coke. Not really, but that’s where Mark met his gingerbird Elle. After a lot of behind the scenes wingmen work by his sisters, boomtown, now they’re married.

Not really any vendors to speak of as Elle’s mum made all the dresses, they got married on her parents farm (paddock to Garden transformation just for the wedding), Mark’s sister did the catering (Crafted and Co) and Elle’s friends did the hair and make up. Such a good day, so much shit talkin’ coming from all sides, just how I like it…oh and here’s a few pics from their backyard wedding, yeeeow!

The rays strike back at Wharerata

February is my peak of the season, and this year is no different with the next 3 weeks of double headers. The first of the double this weekend took me back to Wharerata were Nicky + Nevin held the most relaxed and chilled wedding day. A little bit of Star Wars, a tonne of Tip top Trumpets and a gorgeous sunset, was a treat.

Here’s a few frames from their little beaut of a day.
