Coromandel Wedding: Michael & Amelia

3 weeks ago, I was given another opportunity to cover a wedding in one of New Zealand’s beautiful towns in the Coromandel region.
I already considered myself lucky  to see such a beautiful place again, but I felt even luckier when I met Amelia, Michael and their family, because they were just the most perfect hosts and they made me feel like I was one of the guests.
Covering their wedding was truly a pleasure.

They said their I do’s in front of their friends and family at their family farm overlooking the ocean and the reception followed at the Mussel Kitchen after.

Michael & Amelia, I hope you had a lovely Christmas and you’re enjoying your time with your families! Thank you so much again for having me at your wedding. I had an amazing time and definitely enjoyed listening to the speeches! Once again, congratulations and much love.


Nelson Wedding: Richard and Vicci

It’s hard not to love these two, because they are truly the kindest, nicest and sweetest people I got the pleasure of meeting. It seems almost unreal.
They are the kind of people, who worry if everyone is enjoying themselves and eating something.. on their big day!
No wonder they they just fit perfectly together.

Richard and Vicci’s wedding was a true labour of love.
Everything was almost DIY-ed by Vicci herself, from the origami hearts to the wedding cake and the cake toppers
The end result was definitely breathtaking.
They also made sure that everything was locally sourced.. from the wine to Vicci’s wedding dress!
It was a wedding oozing with lovely and charming details, and that is probably why, up to now, almost 3 weeks after their wedding, I still haven’t gotten over it!

Richard and Vicci, thank you from the bottom of my heart, for everything, especially for making me feel at home.
I loved every bit of your wedding and I had a hard time picking what photos to post here, because everything is just so beautiful!
Your wedding day was truly inspiring and just pure joy to photograph. Much love.

The day started at Vicci’s parents’ place, where she and her bridesmaids had their makeup done by a friend.
I think it’s a blessing in disguise that they had problems with the venue, where they were supposed to get married first and had to cancel, because Vicci’s Mum’s garden was the perfect setting for the ceremony.
All the flowers on the day also came from that garden! AMAZING!

The bridesmaids’ headpiece and all the boutonnieres were also DIY-ed by Vicci.

Absolutely beautiful bouquet. I wanted to take this home!

The guests enjoyed these refreshments while I took the bridal party away for some portraits before heading to the reception venue.

The reception was held at Riverside Cafe, where the food was just mouthwateringly delicious.
The table arrangements were also stunning and I might have just gone a bit crazy taking photos of all the details!

Before going back to the hotel and after a quick change of footwear, we drove to the beach to take a few more photos.

Coromandel Wedding: Ian & Toni

I covered this wedding 2 weeks ago in the Coromandel Peninsula, and it would be an understatement to say that we were excited to drive back to that amazing place.
We have been looking forward to this wedding since Toni and Ian decided they wanted me to photograph their wedding.
That place is just beautiful beyond words and Toni and Ian’s laid back wedding made it all the more special.

Toni and Ian, thank you so much for letting me be a part of your wonderful day. I had such a great time photographing you two, because you  just make such a gorgeous couple! Congratulations and much love!

We started the day at Toni’s grandma’s house in Thames, where Toni and her bridesmaids put on their lovely dresses.
Toni’s gorgeous lace dress was made by her Aunt! A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

One of my favorite parts of a wedding is shooting the bride’s portraits. Toni is such a beautiful bride.

After their morning ceremony, lunch was served inside the church, where Toni and Ian also cut their first cake before everyone left for the reception at Te Kouma Harbour Farmstay.

After lunch we made a quick stop at the Yacht Club before heading to the reception venue.

Then off we drove to the picturesque Te Kouma Harbour Farmstay, where I took their portraits while waiting for the guests to arrive.

It was so much fun photographing this bridal party!

Vienna Lifestyle Portrait Session: Nomar & Caroline

They say there’s nothing better than love based on friendship. It’s almost fail-proof.
Nomar and Caroline are the perfect example of that because they were the best of friends before they became a couple.

I shot this lifestyle session in Vienna just 2 weeks before we left for Wellington. It’s been crazy busy ever since, but good things are definitely worth waiting for, because these photos are just gorgeous. The light, the location, the colors were amazing, but what made this session extra special was definitely the couple.
Nomar & Caroline, you two are absolutely beautiful people and thank you for spending a perfect afternoon with me.

This song couldn’t have been more suitable for these two. For more gorgeousness, please watch the slideshow below.

Kia Ora New Zealand!

We’re back from our long holiday in Europe and last Saturday, we covered Glenn and Susan’s wedding, our first this season. We couldn’t be more delighted. It’s been a busy 5 months and while we’re trying to get back into the swing of things, here are some favorites from our trip and a teaser from Glen and Susan’s wedding and Nomar and Caroline’s lifestyle session.
