One frame from Lesa and George’s wedding

We have spent a lot of time overseas in the last two years. Coming back to New Zealand and travelling around the country to photograph so many amazing weddings really reminds me why we actually come back. The landscape is stunning and the people are lovely. But mostly I love being able to wonder around in fields without having to worry about snakes.

I took this shot at Lesa and George’s wedding in Napier. Highlights included Lesa forgetting to bring a certain important document to the ceremony and George out-dancing everyone. There is some great stuff to come from this wedding.

Pukehiki Wedding | Erica and Jesse

I have only ever been to Dunedin to photograph weddings, so maybe my perspective is a bit distorted, but I find the city and the surrounding area a little bit charming. The landscape, tattooed with old stone walls, hedges, and old ruins, reminds me of somewhere in Scotland.

 

Erica and Jesse decided to have their wedding just outside Dunedin City on the top of the ridge that runs along the Otago Peninsula. The Ceremony was at the Pukehiki Community Church and the reception was at the Pukehiki District Hall. This wedding was full of colour, handmade awesomeness, very happy people, and crazy group dancing. So yeah, I still have a pretty idealistic view of Dunedin. Below follows a photographic account of Erica and Jesse’s kick ass wedding.

I was actually very grateful that the weather turned in the evening. The contrast between the freezing windy landscape outside and the warmth and cheer inside was fantastic. The bad weather did mean that our flight back to Wellington was very very bumpy, but it was well worth it.
