Kauri Mountain Northland Wedding | Katie + Andy

Overpowering coastal views, endless laughs, wild winds, wilder dance moves, a golden sunset and so much love. Katie and Andy's wedding had it all, and in the most perfect way possible!

After some pretty crazy venue hunting, the bride and groom chose Kauri Mountain Estate in Northland for their big day.  A sprawling estate, framed by jaw-dropping cliffs overlooking the ocean and under the most perfect Pohutukawa tree to say their “I Dos”, it's safe to say their guests were in for a real treat. 

Having been engaged for 7 years, this event was some time in the making, and endless amounts of time and love had gone into making each and every little detail just perfect. From hand-painted signs and all white floral arrangements which covered the tables, to a handmade bar and the most mouth watering grazing table, the day was absolutely jam packed with amazing DIY details and styling.

The reception was held open-air style, with guests seated at long banquet tables framed by strings of festoon lights. A stunning sight! After feasting on delicious mains (rolled pork belly - hells yeah!), we snuck Katie and Andy away for a few sunset shots amongst the rolling hills only a short stumble away.  The night finished off with some pretty great dance moves under the night sky, no doubt followed by a few sore heads in the a.m.

Matakana Stables | Katy + Nick

Winter wedding anyone? Katy + Nick got hitched a few weeks back in the old Whangateau hall and for those who don't know this space...it oozes with so much character and goodness we didn't know how to contain our excitement. So we just didn't. A few minor hiccups in the morning didn't seem to phase these two so we gauged pretty quickly we were in for freaking good day. And that we had! The reception was held in Matakana surrounded by their nearest and dearest with some of the most hilarious speeches we've heard to date. Conclusion - we dig winter weddings. Get amongst! 

Big ups to the team for putting such an amazing day together - Muck Floral , Kaitlin Chapman Hair + Makeup and the lovelies from Two Foxes Styling for the finer details. 

Simply San Sebastián, a Spanish backdrop | Dan + Monica

Dan who is from the elegant city of Bucharest, the capital of Romania first met Monica whilst they were living in Barcelona. These two, we kid you not, are two of the happiest humans we've ever met. They've since relocated to San Sebastián where they've set up an amazing home with doors that open onto the beautiful Spanish coastline and Tapas bars which line the cobbled streets in every direction. We were in heaven! Like two kids with a few scoops of goodie gum drop ice-cream, we oh so excitedly set off to capture their love story amongst this stunning city. What a life! We couldn't stop these two from smiling, it's definitely obvious these lovers are head over heels for each other. We wish them the craziest Mexican/Romanian celebrations when they tie the knot in May.

A city of sails engagement shoot, Auckland | Kirå + Fletch

Take a rugged Kiwi lad and a dainty German gal and you have yourself one pretty perfect match.  Meet Kirå and Fletch, a pair that quietly chuckle at each others dry jokes and share a love which started while they were travelling abroad. Mention the words boat, sun downers and adventure, or any one of the above and we're sold...who cares in which direction, you can count us in. When these two mentioned an engagement shoot we were already eager, then Fletch threw in his old mans yacht into the equation and off we went. Jackpot! These two ended their evening in a row boat (how cute!!) while we continued to sip on our beverages...and take a few cheeky snaps along the way. Thanks for the mission guys!
