beautiful people, beautiful venue. a few photos from ellie and alex’s wedding day.
Smile 🙂 That’s what seemed like the motto for Matt & Lenas wedding day. They are some of the most smiley people we know and it’s just infectious, making for a wonderfully relaxed and easy going shoot. Following an intimate ceremony surrounded by their nearest and dearest, we made our way around the Whangarei Heritage Museum which had a ton of neat outdoor locations. We rounded the day off with a quick visit to the wharf and then headed to the Settlers Hotel for the reception, as it was getting dark. These two are such a calm couple who don’t sweat the small stuff and really soldiered on with us even though it got freezing cold! Thanks for having us guys, we wish you all the best.
A beautiful crisp autumn day was the perfect scene for Mel and Ike’s wedding day. Their special day was full of fun personal touches like heading to the Manukau Golf Course for a few shots, not to mention hooning round on golf carts, turning more than a few heads and interrupting several games to get some shots! A more civilised portrait shoot followed at the Auckland Botanical Gardens with the whole bridal party. All the orange tones of the season were such a beautiful backdrop for this multi cultural couple. An intimate reception followed at the Mt Richmond Hotel with lots of good food, good company and lots of laughs and dancing.
Avy and Zach met in Thailand of all places but their wedding day had a very handmade kiwi feel about it. There were even some sheep much to Zachs delight as he is from the US. After an intimate garden ceremony at Couldrey House in wenderholm, we got the opportunity to take some beautiful portraits in the golden afternoon light around the regional park. We also stopped by the magestic line of trees losing their autumn leaves for a few more shots before heading to the nearby Puhoi Centennial Hall for the reception. It was a pleasure to shoot such a beautiful couple. Congratulations guys!
Caitlin is one beautiful bride and Micah is one lucky groom. So much gorgeousness in this wedding! Stanmore Bay on the North Shore set the scene for the best family shots ever and was a perfect match for the vintage Beetle wedding car, hired as a gift to the couple from the brides brother. We found some cute back streets off the Coatesville-Riverhead Highway en route to the reception to shoot portraits. The setting was so good we were shooting until there was no light left! Music from the bridal party vehicle had run the battery flat so we had to give them a running push start to make it to the Riverhead Tavern in time! A top-your-own-cupcake bar was a delicious way to end dinner before the dancing started. Caitlin and Micah were so gracious to let us pull them away from the dance floor for a few fun shots with sparklers. Overall an amazing day with so many memories. Thanks for having us as a part of it!
