Katie + RobSt Georges and By George! Auckland Wedding

Alternative urban wedding Auckland

 

Katie and Rob were married at St Georges in Epsom- the one with the actual wedding bells.

Having known Katie and Rob for some time I knew that they would have a well-considered yet unconventional approach to their wedding and they did not disappoint. The whole day was packed to brim with their individual style helped along by friends and family. Rob’s Mum and Aunt Ruth crafted the foraged flower bouquets using colours picked from Rob’s family tartan while Katie’s Dad married the couple in a hilarious and relaxed ceremony that suited them just right.

The bridesmaids were decked out in deep shades of gold, sky blue and navy while Katie’s dress was the definition classic simplicity; a perfect combination of vintage lace with a modern cut.

I love the joy and laughter Rob and Katie shared throughout their day despite the pouring rain that graced us half way through the photos. Playful and generous in their the love, the pair have no pretense about their life together. Shaped by years of friendship, the whole day was a reflection of their togetherness, where their unique personalities both find a home.

Twenty FifteenA Year In Review

2015 Year in Review- NZ Weddings-042

 

Yesterday I put the finishing touches on my final wedding of 2015.

And while last year didn’t bring us self tying shoelaces and hoverboards it did bring me personal growth, a new home town and encounters with some true blue people. So thank you all you beautiful humans for inviting me into your magical and unique worlds and allowing me to capture it through my eyes.

Here’s to you guys.

Special thanks also to Greta at Together Journal  | Everyone at A Bit More Soul | Kate at Magnolia Rouge | Soph and Si of Bayly and Moore | Natalie McNally | Homestyle Magazine | Sony at Truly and Madly | Urbis Magazine | Blackbird Gem and all the vendors, blogs and amazing photographers who have supported me and given me a thumbs up emoji when I needed one.

Mark + ChristyCentral City and Kumeu, Auckland Wedding

Christy + Mark- Urban Auckland Wedding-044

 

Mark and Christy were married at Mt Albert Methodist.

She rocked up in a friend’s classic Mercedes- grey blue and packed with memories they shared together. I could tell that Mark and Christy were a couple that everyone adored. Those that attended their ceremony couldn’t seem to contain their joy. Matthew Hutching, a groomsman and member of Christy’s band The Bonnie C, played Amazing Grace on the pedal steel guitar during the ceremony and the peaceful hush that feel over the church was beautiful.

I absolutely loved the casual nostalgia these two brought to their day. The super 8 film cameras panning the background in every shot, classic cars, tea and cake in the church hall and I’ve never seen a guy pull off a cravat like Mark did. Christy oozed grace and ease in her amazing two piece dress, and I had a blast cruising the city with the bridal party, drinking Giant craft beer and Champagne.

Christy and Mark brought something to their wedding day that you can’t conjure or learn from a Pinterest top ten list.
They brought authenticity and pure childlike joy and it was an absolute pleasure to capture.
