"Love is a touch of friendship and a handful of dreams" - R.M. Drake
Toni-Leigh and Ben, are the couple every photographer dreams of capturing. Playful, silly and bursting with joy! Toni-Leigh had this incredible way of spreading happiness wherever she went! We had so much fun running and jumping through the vineyards of Vilagrads in Hamilton with these two!
This long-awaited epic love story began a new chapter as Michele and Graeme became Husband and Wife. I am not sure who was more excited this couple or their beautiful children.
Their wedding took place inside Michele and Graeme’s Murray Bay home. This was our first time capturing a wedding ceremony in a suburban home and we were blown away by the results! Michele’s talents exceeded our expectations as she transformed her home into a unique suburban ceremony venue!
Besides the incredible attire, spectacular flowers/table set-ups and amazing food! This wedding felt like spending Christmas with your family, relaxed, warm, and surrounded by love.
Set against the incredible views that Kauri Bay Boomrock has to offer, fur shawls, warm fires and autumns hues created an elegant but cosy ambience.
As we stood in awe of the table settings and chatted amongst guest waiting for mike to arrive. We heard the rumble of a helicopter in the distance, swopping in like James Bond, Mike and his boys made a spectacular entrance.
Even with all the excitement, everyone was anxiously waiting for Amy, as she stepped down the aisle, the tears began to well and a few hearts skipped a beat! She looked so stunning! I am not sure who was more emotional Mike or her father.

“Her heart was wild, but I didn’t want to catch it, I wanted to run with it, to set mine free” - Atticus
When Pamela and Stephen said they love triathlons we were not expecting them to bring their bikes to the wedding. But we loved that they did! Their special day unfolded at the The Stables in Matakana, where rustic charm meets modern character.
This couple was cheesy, competitive, fun loving and up for a good time! Adored by their friends and family, we feel so grateful to have captured their wedding day.
Their constant laughter says it all!
Sometimes we forget to acknowledge the now but these two showed us how to live in the moment and love every second of it! Ana, One, and their entire bridal party were bursting with life. Their love for each other, their children, god and their culture was present in every little detail!
We spent the afternoon adventuring around Muriwai, hiking through sand, woods, and tall grass, it was incredible and unforgettable!
The moons of her eyes, lit up the stars in his, tucked away on a private island, Francesca and Ben took on the greatest adventure of all as they became husband and wife.
It took a tablespoon of blunders, a cup of love and a sprinkle of god to create Robyn and Chad’s perfect wedding! These two had an enormous amount of love and support and it was reflected in every little detail. I have never meet two people more beautiful both inside and out!
Love is a spectrum of magic and there is something very magical about these two! Nettled in the rugged west coast landscape, Sophie and Brad crossed the ditch to share their intimate journey into Husband and Wife with their closest family and friends. It was a stellar day with the sun burning bright, as we crossed into the blanket of the night sky, the wild at heart came out to play!
Settled amongst the magical gardens of St Margarets Cafe Owen & Leely began their Journey as Husband and Wife.

Nestled on the romantic hilltop on Waiheke Island, two families joined together to celebrate the gorgeous wedding of Hazel and Nicholas.
With Hazel taking the opportunity to take in the morning sun at the newly-made lodge at Mudbrick, Nicholas opted for a grandeur-house overlooking the Hauraki Gulf.
The sun shone and laughs filled the reception as the pair listened to tear-jerking speeches about the impact they had made on everyone's lives.
A wedding we will cherish forever!
Alana and Caleb had taken on the weather gods and conquered the day! Rain came and stopped just before Alana made her way down the isle and stayed away for the rest of the day! Nothing was stopping these two Alana and Caleb are beautiful kindred souls who's gratitude for each other is beyond admirable! As the sun set the inner party animal of each guest came out to dance! Complimented with some stunning/talented performances! A night to remember!
Have you ever meet two people and thought "wow you two are perfect for each other!" Well Becky and Jharaiz is this couple! Their playful banter and sense of adventure sparks inspiration into any by stander! With the sun peaking through the west coast clouds, we followed this gorgeous couple along the rustic beach side and forest.
Sarah and Robb set sail together as they journeyed across a sea of emotions into becoming husband and wife. Their passion for the high seas are like no other and their sense of adventure, playfulness and love for each other is awe-inspiring! Sarah and Robb had the difficult task of transporting everyone (including themselves) to a private beach for their ceremony which was only accessible by boat! Then for the reception, they got back on to a boat with all their guests and enjoyed a magnificent sunset! It could have been a logistical nightmare but with Sarah's organising skills the day was nothing short of perfection!

A winters sunset on the west coast was the perfect spot for the gorgeous couple to waltz around the forest and beach!
