Rosy & Mike – Super fun to hang with and always up for a good laugh!
These two love birds flew from Melbourne to tie the knot on a beautiful sunny March afternoon at Fairfield House. With a 1950′s feel to their day. The men looked smooth and ladies oh so darn gorgeous in their short frocks!
Think confetti, pinwheels, bright colours and few cigar’s making an appearance – it was definitely a relaxed and fun day.
Thanks a bunch guys for asking us to capture your super rad wedding!
Ps. Rosy & Mike’s wedding was the first of three weddings we had over the three days!
Kate & Paul’s ( Aka Olly ) wedding was held at Mt Vernon Lodge over looking the gorgeous French themed town Akaroa – just an hour or so out of Christchurch.
We arrived the day before to very HEAVY rain!! We prayed like hard that the next day would be stunning…Prayers answered! We woke on Saturday to a gorgeous sunny day with a slight chill to it.
We started the day off with coffee and yummy fresh muffins from the local cafe then headed off to meet the guys at their cabin at Mt Vernon Lodge for some pre-getting ready photographs and a drink then headed down the hill to capture Kate and the girls getting ready.
Before each wedding we are always wondering what the dress is going to be like! The Dress is such an important part of the day and super exciting! When Renee and I walked into Kate’s room on the morning of the wedding
and saw her dress our jaws dropped! It was just divine and then when she let slip that she had made it alongside her Mum we were blown away! Super impressive and so beautiful!
Their ceremony was held out on the lawn overlooking Akaroa surrounded by close family and friends who had flown in from around the globe to celebrate them – Did I mention Kate & Paul flew over from Australia for their wedding?!
The Reception was such a blast – Renee and I were felt super blessed to be seated with Kate and Paul’s guests – it’s always fun meeting their friends and answering all their questions about photographing weddings and enjoying the party.
Highlights from the day
- THE DRESS!!
- Paul’s Dad’s speech. At the start of it he ripped of his tie and said ” that is the last time you will see me wearing that! ” Soooo funny
- The First Dance and Dancing. Kate’s dance moves are super rad!
Enjoy their blog!
I had the pleasure of photographing Bex & Grant’s romantic day and also designing their wedding stationery for it as well. Over the months of designing their stationery and talking over plans for their wedding , I felt like I really got to know Bex and her incredible personality. She is one of the happiest people I have meet with so much energy!
One of my favourite moments from their day was early on in the morning capturing Bex’s Mum help her get into the dress. I found myself getting quite teary and emotional!
Bex & Grant were married in the Barrel Room at Witherhills surrounded by their closet of family and friends. We spent afternoon photographing their bridal party around Wither Hills and then finished the evening off with upstairs looking out over the vinery with the sun slowly going down in the distance.
The food was incredible, the speeches were heartfelt and the first dance was pretty darn romantic!
