Clevedon Farm Wedding: Olivia and Mark {Auckland weddings photographers}

We so excited to share with you our recent Clevedon Farm wedding where Olivia & Mark get marries in Vin Alto Winery, bride's home full of such a sweet childhood memories. This wedding was shot by Matt, my associate photographer and husband, together with Kimberley, second photographer. I think they done such an awesome job. I could FEEL the atmosphere, emotion and moment while I been editing this wedding in my custom style. It's so great to realise we have such amazing team of talented Auckland wedding photographers!

Couple shared the story of their proposal: "We were meant to go for a walk in our favourite park one afternoon, and Mark had hid champagne and flowers under the bed for when we returned, and booked dinner - but it ended raining - so it was in the lounge!" They love cooking together and their ideal date night "A lazy Sunday afternoon in the kitchen together making dumplings from scratch and eating them :)"

North Auckland Farm Wedding: Sophia and Jethro {New Zealand weddings photographer}

Fantastic time with Sophia & Jethro in North Auckland at their farm wedding near Mangawhai and Puhoi. As a wedding photographer, I love to capture beautiful weddings all around New Zealand and beyond, but farm - barn weddings have such a unique, freedom atmosphere with great spirit. We start getting ready in Mangawhai and then went to the farm at Puhoi, also ha an excellent opportunity to visit Wenderholm Regional park for couple's session with the bridal party, and finished at the reception under the marquee with 200 guests. It was such amazing day with a great atmosphere. 

The couple shared their love story with the proposal: "After an alpine hike in the Milford sound, on a snow-topped mountain at sunset (with wine and cheese) :) AMAZING!"

Gisborne DIY farm wedding {New Zealand destination weddings photographer} Kathleen & Steven

Kathleen & Steven {06.02.2017}

Congratulations to amazing couple who celebrated their special day with close friends and family on their parents farm in Gisborne {New Zealand}. I shoot two destination weddings over those hot weekend in Gisborne {yes, it was over 34 degrees, crazy hot! but weather can't stop love and celebrations :)}.

This wedding had some special freedom atmosphere, unique spirit and great people around on the day, Im always glad to meet open and kind people as it was in Gisborne. Farm DIY environment add to the atmosphere. "Lots of DIY items; my mother gave me a necklace that used to belong to my granny - her mum. The groom's ring is based on the father of the bride's wedding ring."

Couple shared their story:

"We met on a night out when our groups of friends came together. Steve was living in Gisborne and I was just back for a month before heading to Europe for 4 months. We spent about 3 weeks together before I went overseas. We kept in touch the whole time, and by the time I got back we were basically together. I then went back to Christchurch for a year and we continued our relationship long distance with many trips back and forth! I moved back to Gisborne and we lived together for a year before I moved to Hamilton to do further studies. After a few more months long distance, Steve moved up to Hamilton as well. We stayed there for the rest of the year before moving to Auckland so I could work and Steve could start studies. We've now been here for 4 years - together for over 7."

How was made a proposal: "On his graduation day he arranged for us to go up the Sky Tower for dinner. He hid the ring in a handmade box in one of his socks. I'm very scared of heights so he was a bit worried at first when I was so uneasy, he then started feeling a little bit seasick from the rotating restaurant. But after the food came out we got used to it. After dinner but before dessert, he pulled out a card with a poem in it that he had written for me. The end of the poem was his proposal, and he produced the ring in a beautiful wooden box that he had carved himself." Such a beautiful and romantic story from Kathleen!

Happy future together!
