Rivendell | Wedding Inspiration Shoot

The untouched wilderness of Rivendell, where New Zealand's native rainforest spills down steep gully's to the edge of the grey stone banks of the Hutt river, provided the moody location for our romantic wedding inspiration shoot. Sheltering from the rain, under a dripping tree canopy, in your lovers arms.

Inspired by the elegance of Anna Campbell's 'Coco' dress with it's delicate silver, pearl, and crystal beaded bodice, Madame Fancy Pants made custom chain and crystal earrings to complete Amy's look. Richard wears a classic black and white bow tie dinner suit from Crane Brothers. Finished with a wild bouquet by Swoon Flowers, of silvered eucalyptus foliage, with soft cream and dusty pinks blooms to warm, and a splash of mustard to compliment the stone.

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!

Amy & Campbell | Tarureka Estate, Wairarapa Wedding

Amy & Campbell got married in February 2016. (I'm shabby at blogging :/)  Here is the start of their truly, magically, happily married ever after story. A blazing hot day in the Wairarapa, a very fun garden party, quick pop over to an olive grove in the Kombi, back to the party. This is my idea of doing a wedding right, leaving loads of time to relax and catch up with everyone. Keep that bridal party shoot short and sweet! Award for best hugger 2016 goes to Amy. Huge thanks to Melissa Maguire who took a bunch of these photos. #twoeyesontheprize
