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!

February is coming to an end and it’s been hectic. With me travelling all over the North Island, it was nice to get one back in my hometown. Aimee + Philip married at Roseburn PArk (formerly known as Wakefield Lodge) just on the outskirts of Palmy.

A few gnomes, a clothesline of Rosemary Beads and remembering Emily’s dog, it was a beauty of a day. A few snaps from these classy kids wedding.

The fine 9 at the Milk Station, Otaki

New Zealand Wedding Photographer David Le |

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.

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!

Squid facts at Makoura Lodge

A little sunset frolic mixed in with a first dance practise with Ali + Tyler.

The Big Fin Squid species has ten arms while all of the others only feature eight of them. They are also all the same length which is interesting because other species feature arms that are of various lengths.

But enough about Squids, Ali + Tyler smashing out a sweet summer wedding at Makoura Lodge. From a little project in their garage to a little sunset bliss. A bit of an axe and a couple frames from their wedding, more to come!

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.
