Anna & Tom were married at Brackenridge Country Estate on a beautiful January afternoon. Originally this wedding was booked in for May, but just a few months ago Anna called me to let me know they needed to move their wedding forward as she had been given a unique opportunity with work to spend some time in Japan. So we quickly got it all sorted and luckily all the other vendors could move dates, and it was all systems go. With Tom being from Canada, it did mean it was short notice for a lot of guests, but his mum made the trip over , which was so special for them. Thing I loved about this wedding it that it was all about family and friends - simple, relaxed and super cruisey. Theses guys just go with the flow, and roll with whatever life throws at them. Thanks for having me along on your wedding day. xx

Queensberry Wedding Albums - Tina & David I always feel that a wedding isn't really finished until the album is complete. Its that time of year again when I am busy finishing up all the albums from over summer, and for me this is the best bit. Seeing all the images form the day put together to tell the story of your day as it unfolds. I always so to couples that although this is your album it not just for you. Its also for your children, your children's children. A way to sit together and look over the memories from the day when this little branch of your family starting. I think all to to often, we don't realise just how important photographs are until they are gone. If you want to make sure you still have them in 10, 20, 30 years time then print them. Even better put them in a beautiful album.

Brackenridge, Martinborough Wedding Photography - Andrew & Rachael Brackenridge Country Estate in Martinborough is one of my favourite venues to photograph at. Rachael and Andrew choose this lovely spot for their wedding day celebrations back in December. As part of Rachael's work she plans events and it showed in the attention to detail throughout the wedding! Because of Rachael's meticulous planning the whole day went without a hitch - the only person who didn't get the memo was the Wairarapa weather gods and we were blessed with the wind! It didn't seem to faze anyone though! The day was very special for Rachael and Andrew - they spend a lot of their time travelling with work so its not often that both families get together. Rachael comes from a family of four girls - being the last one to get married. So, who better to have as your bridesmaids than your three sisters who have their own wedding experiences to help add to the mix! Andrew had his trusted friends by his side who flew in the NZ to support him on his special day. Just when I thought the day couldn't be any more special, as part of their speeches Rachael and Andrew had a very special announcement which had all the guests up and cheering. There were tears of joy from the whole room (including me!) Anyway that announcement is for a different post..... you will have to wait and see! Thank you so much for having us along for you day - it really was an absolute privilege!

Brackenridge Wedding Martinborough - Ali and Andrew Ali and Andrew were married in at the lovely Brackenridge Country Estate in Martinborough. I love working at Brackenridge - it is such a beautiful rustic location, and there are so many opportunities for photographs. So many, that Ali and Andrew decided make the most of it and have all their picture taken onsite. These guys were just so lovely! The day was all about family and hanging out with the people who are important to them. Ali opted to do away with tradition and have her two brothers as bridesmen. I have to say I was so impressed - they certainly did an amazing job taking care of Ali. And the attention to detail - they were always there helping out with the dress! She couldn't have asked for more! Andrew and his groomsmen were so much fun - I though I might have my hands full with this many boys in the bridal party, but it was such fun. I don't think I have laughed as much! Ali and Andrew it was an absolute pleasure to be part of your special day! Thanks for having us along!

Martinborough Winter Wedding So everyone is talking about spring and summer being on the way, but if you have just got engaged and everything is booking for the coming summer, how about a winter wedding? The great thing about winter is that you are more likely to find the suppliers you like are available and also the light is awesome! Rebecca and Murray were married in Martinborough in June and it was a lovely winters day. Don't they look stunning?
