Alex & Polly | Titahi Bay, Wellington Wedding

A couple of weeks ago I got the most lovely email from Polly. "I just wanted to say thank you so much for the magic you created with your camera at our wedding. I look through our photos almost every week and find something new to see, laugh at, treasure and enjoy every time. We had such a fun, loving day and I think our photos really captured that." Naww! I mean that's the flippen goal right there isn't it. 

Weddings are brilliant celebrations of love, and these two knocked it out the park with this one. But I've got a feeling their marriage is going to be even more awesome.

PS: Overheard guest quote when Mr Whippy arrived: "THIS IS THE BEST WEDDING EVER"

PPS: On another Mr Whippy note, it was pretty big day for Polly, what with getting married and getting her first ever double cone ice cream!

Teresa & Keenan | Sudbury, Kapiti Wedding.

Teresa & Keenan were married at Sudbury. It's so lovely to think about all that's happened since their wedding day, they have a little girl now! A bit has changed at Sudbury also, a new dance floor & terrace area namely. (This is me trying to catch up on two years of blogging by the way!) My favourite things from this wedding were taking T&K down to Te Horo beach for sunset pics, and the awesome cake topper!

A love ballad to the wedding veil & Wellington's glorious wind!

To celebrate me having a totally empty editing pile for the first time in months, and to ease me into the two years of blogging backlog I now have no excuse not to make a start on, here is a blog post that's been an idea nugget in my head for a while. THE VEIL. Endless drama, lols, and frustrated veil wrangling has ensued. Many a veil has been discarded, stuffed into a bridesmaids purse. Sometimes the wind has not come to the party and I have employed a member of the bridal party to 'be the wind' as I like to put it. Whatever traditional use a veil once had has long been surpassed by it's use as a wedding fashion statement, combined with the windiest city in the world, it is a brave choice for a bride to make.

Enjoy!
