Mr + Mrs Smale and their beautiful Rosenvale wedding

Mr + Mrs Smale and their beautiful Rosenvale wedding

Wowee! What a day, Nicole and Craig got married at the beautiful Rosenvale on an absolute scorcher of a day. It was one of the most relaxed go-with-the-flow affairs we have ever been to, which meant that these two got to actually spend some quality time mingling with all of their friends who they had incidentally shipped in on a party bus (well a bus, but they brought the party!) They started with a touching ceremony, which had more than a few tears, bridesmaids I am looking at you gals! Before afternoon drinks and nibbles with all of their faves. We snuck off with the bridal party to take a few photos before heading into the reception, the bridal party who I might add were some of the funniest and fun-est guys around. These two were truly surrounded by amazing friends that were stoked to be there, and some of the best were at that bridal table. Their amazing cake was even made by their maid-of-honour! To top it off these guys set up for a good night of partying, nothing ends a wedding night better than a metal band playing all of your favourite songs!

It was such a wonderful day to be a part of guys and we are so stoked you chose us! Congratulations Mr + Mrs Smale!!!

Mr + Mrs Hendricks and their Romantic Willow glen Wedding

Mr + Mrs Hendricks and their Romantic Willow glen Wedding

If anyone ever was truly meant to be, it’s Jenny and Wes. These two and their deep wonderful love and friendship reached out and included everyone around them, they are not only perfect for each other, but they are also the kind of people that everyone wants to be friends with. They celebrated their wedding on a stunning day in the middle of November, getting married where they went on their first date, amidst beautiful gardens and loving friends and family. We had so much fun spending the day with them and joining in the celebrations, and there definitely was not a dry eye (including us!) during their moving ceremony. Jenny not only shared her vows with her husband but also with his two wonderful sons, who were standing by his side as his groomsmen. After a relaxed stroll through the gardens to get a few photos of the fabulous bridal party (which as a side note included Jenny’s mum as maid-of-honour, what a BABE!) and then some with just the newlyweds, Jenny and Wes had a wonderful dinner with their nearest and dearest with some heartfelt speeches, hilarious games and lots of laughter. What a privilege to capture this day and what wonderful people we got to meet. Guys, our biggest congratulations to you both, we love you!

Mr + Mrs Rust and their family wedding delight

Mr + Mrs Rust and their family wedding delight

Labour weekend saw the wedding of Cholena and Alex! These two had the most stylish and relaxed backyard family wedding which saw them truly celebrate their families blending.  The central thing they asked for was photos of the people who were there, those people who made their lives special.  That and photos in the bush and on a train track (that was definitely a nod to Alex being a train driver). The days highlights included their children’s happy tears and tight hugs, Cholena’s 8 day old squishy new nephew and his amazing parents being involved all day, the children and adults playing and dancing together and the continuous sounds of laughter that were heard everywhere. It honestly felt like a cross between a festival, a giant picnic, and one massive family party (with some seriously gorgeous people). It was so much fun to be a part of and so special to witness your day that was uniquely you, we just love it when couples don’t bow to tradition but instead craft a day that fits them as a couple, which is exactly what these two down to earth, relaxed and awesome individuals did. We hope you guys enjoy seeing a wee look into how we saw your wonderful day! Congratulations Mr and Mrs Rust!!!!

Mr + Mrs Tse and their Gorgeous Raglan wedding

Mr + Mrs Tse and their Gorgeous Raglan wedding

The newly established Mr + Mrs Tse were a perfect beginning to our wedding season, we have known (and loved!) Grace for years and so to document this incredibly special day was a real honour. Grace, Stan, his family, and a big portion of their friends flew over from Sydney for the Raglan wedding. They got married with a beautiful ceremony that truly gave glory to God which was such a reflection on who each of them is individually as well as as a couple. Grace and Stan followed their ceremony by an afternoon tea reception in the hall, which was filled with lots of laughter, good speeches and delicious food (and cake!) Once they had said their goodbyes we went on a bit of adventure with the bridal party in search of bush, beach and some epic vistas for photos, which, being a raglan wedding did not disappoint!  Finishing up back in Hamilton for the Tse family dinner we also managed to get some sneaky sunset photos on a school field! The family dinner was intimate and crowded, moving and hilarious and a genuinely wonderful celebration of these two. Grace and Stan we so loved spending the day with you both and pray God’s blessing on your life together!

Mr + Mrs Meeske: A perfect winter wedding at Abbeville Estate

Mr + Mrs Meeske: A perfect winter wedding at Abbeville Estate

Oh man! This blog is a long one but boy is it a goodie, there were so many beautiful moments in this LAST wedding for us (well until spring anyway). Nathan and Jaime are the absolute embodiment of delight, they are unbelievably in love and were so excited to finally be getting married. The day started with horizontal wind and rain, and yet when we walked out of the ceremony, God had blessed us with sunshine! Despite the clear skies it was windy and bitterly cold, which kept the girls, with their heels, light dresses and flowy hair pretty busy trying to stay warm, upright and seeing straight!  Despite this, Nathan, Jaime and their awesome crew were absolutely buzzing and were the biggest joy to be around. The reception was pure celebration, everyone present was just so, so happy about this wedding! Nathan and Jaime are BOTH pastors kids and so we were expecting some pretty awesome speeches and they didn’t disappoint! Both sets of parents spoke beautiful words of truth, encouragement and blessing over these two.  Nathan and Jaime finished their evening with dancing in the barn which was so much fun and increasingly hilarious! Mr + Mrs Meeske, you are so beautifully fitted together and have such an exciting future ahead of you. We cannot wait to see what God does with you guys in the years to come, thank you so much for having us as part if your day!
