Sarah & Daniel | Sudbury, Kapiti Coast Wedding

Sarah & Dan were married at Sudbury on the Kapiti Coast. Many personal touches added meaning to their day, from the rings they made together with gold they had fossicked for, to their Dad’s vintage cars that made the journey up from the South Island. So much love, joy, and sweetness.

Helen & Jono | Cuba Street, Wellington Wedding

Helen & Jono were married at {Suite} art gallery, and had their reception at Loretta . These two are total gold, and so are the insanely supportive family they have surrounding them. The speeches were brilliant, laughter, tears, hugs, take a hot minute to compose yourself, brilliance. I loved taking them for a lap around Cuba street precinct for photos, and oh ma God the courtyard at {Suite} with the Ans Westra photo murals is amazingness. Do weddings your way folks!

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.
