Yuthika and Steve – A wedding at Simunovich Olive Estate

Part two of Yuthika and Steve’s wedding was held at the stunning Simunovich Olive Estate.

We took the photographs before the ceremony as these partiers did not want to miss a moment with their guests who had travelled from around the globe.

I love this because it allowed us to do some ‘first look’ shots, always such a magical moment!

The grounds on the Estate are so gorgeous to just wonder around and take endless photos.

After a beautiful ceremony and cocktail hour, the evening was filled with delicious food, wine, a hilarious version of the ‘shoe game’,  brilliant speeches and Yuthika’s very contagious laughter, which made me smile all night long.

A huge congratulations to you both, thank you so much for sharing your journey with me.

Jody and James – A Wedding in Dargaville

Once a tomboy on the farm, Jody was on this day a stunning, sophisticated bride ( fortunately still on the farm! ).

The family property was beautifully manicured and transformed into a perfect outdoor ceremony location and reception.

I could have spent all weekend roaming the farm, taking photographs, but as ever, time is short and there was a party to get back to!

The fickle weather turned out to be a blessing as the rain poured down, we cut short our photo shoot in the back paddocks, and took refuge in the wool shed which was a gorgeous setting in its own rugged, utilitarian way.

A gorgeous day and rowdy celebration that went well into the wee hours. Congratulations, thank you so much for having me!

Yuthika And Steve – An Indian Ceremony

From worlds apart, Yuthika and Steve have united together.

This was the first of their two weddings and it was truly a feast for the senses, and the heart.

From the stunning details of henna tattoo and brightly shining jewels, to the all-encompassing aroma of incense burning, heat thrown from the fire ( in the lounge room none the less! ) to the echoes of chanting and gorgeous Hindu scripture filling your ears.

You could not hep but be swept up and bowled over.

These two and their families ooze laughter, compassion and love. It was evident in every moment and every photograph.

Thanks you so much for sharing your day with me, here is just a small selection of images from the day.

Samantha And Andre – A Wedding in Pukekohe

It is always such a privilege to see the enormous amount of planning and effort that goes into a wedding day.

Family and friends gather not just for the celebration, but for the preparation, the anticipation, the ticking off of each item on that long pre wedding to-do list.

Within the space of a few days, a simple field on the farm was transformed into a stunning wedding destination with home made alter, gorgeous reception venue and even its own bar.

Not even the promised torrential rain could dampen this day, and somehow we escaped dry for the most part.

Thank you Sam and Andre for sharing your magical day with me, I enjoyed every moment and I hope you enjoy a few of the images here.

Angelique and Glen – A Wedding at Mantells

Angelique and Glens special day was held at Mantells Mt Eden.  Such a genuine couple, surrounded by a close knit of family and friend ensured this day was intimate and heartfelt.

A witty sense of humour all round meant it was also hilarious.

Amazing food, fun speeches and a fantastic first dance ensured things kicked off in style and continued well into the night.

Congratulations and thank you so much for letting me capture your special moments and share in the laughter.

Angelique’s stunning detailed dress is from Rue De Seine. Flowers by Susan Rogers Flowers.
