Erin and Oscar’s stunning Dairy Flat garden picnic wedding!

Erin and Oscar are TOO CUTE! Coralee went to primary school with Erin and when she emailled us asking to be a part of her big day we were pumped! The wedding took place at a beautiful house in Dairy Flat. As Coralee photographed the girls getting ready in Papatoetoe I made the drive out to Dairy flat to catch up with the guys. Just before I got to the house I passed the most amazing red barn and rolls of hay on the roadside. Out of the window went all of our other location plans and I knocked on the door of the house. The old lady was super kind and it turns out I’m not the first photographer to randomly drop by to ask if we can use her shed. She didn’t understand what all the fuss what about…”It’s just an old rusty barn” she told me, genuinely bewildered as to why we’d want to use it. The wedding was incredible. Every little detail was perfectly fitting to Erin, Oscar and their day. Following the ceremony (check out that view!), the guests mingled on the lawn on picnic rugs and ate delicious treats from some great old picnic baskets that had been collected specifically for the day. As we took of for a quick photo session with the bridal party at our sweet shed find, the guests all made their way to Waipuna Lodge where Erin, Oscar and their bridal party rejoined them shortly. Erin, Oscar…we are SO SO happy that we could be there to celebrate with you both and photograph you on your special day. You both looked incredible! Seriously! This blog post is coming at you from Berlin, where we’re currently exploring…but we just had a bit of a moment reliving all the awesomeness of the day as we made this post! Yay! Enjoy! Alex (and Coralee)

Disneyland!

Aaah Disneyland. It really is a place where magic happens! What a treat is was to visit! I got sore cheeks from smiling too much, and the only other time that has happened to me was on my wedding day!
All the below photos were taken on our nifty iphones and processed using the ShakeItPhoto app. The best camera is definitely the one that lives in your pocket!

Alex and I are having so much fun on our wee adventure, we have neglected our blog a little… sorry bout that! I promise more weddings to be blogged very soon! We got some goodies waiting patiently on our hard drive :-)
Love Coralee (&Alex) xx

Crystal and Aaron – Shanghai Lil’s Parnell

Crystal and Aaron had a small, intimate wedding held at Shanghai Lil’s in Parnell. It was a beautiful celebration of their love, with only their closest friends and family present- they didn’t even have any bridesmaids or groomsmen! We loved photographing the two cultures joining, with traditional customs such as the Chinese tea ceremony…and we loved the red Chinese decorations for good luck! Congratulations Crystal and Aaron! We had a blast photographing you, and wish you all the best for your married lives together! C&A xx
