Introducing Genevieve & Jon – Mantell’s Mt Eden

Genevieve and Jon might actually be the nicest people that we’ve met…EVER! These two have the most incredible personalities, incredible looks, incredible smarts (they’re both doctors), incredible families and incredible friends! We left Friday’s wedding at Mantell’s feeling all warm and fuzzy inside! Aren’t they just the cutest!? Definitely more of this lovely wedding to come! C&A xx

Stacey and Gareth’s incredibly beautiful Brick Bay wedding! Snells Beach / Matakana

Aah, Stacey and Gareth’s wedding day. One of our final weddings of 2012 and it was pretty much a day full of awesomeness! I dropped Coralee off in Matakana at the cutest little wooden cabin where Stacey and the girls were busy preparing for the day. Definitely an epic place to get ready. I didn’t dare pop my head into the girls’ zone….but quickly dropped Coralee off and headed towards Omaha Beach were Gareth and his groomsmen were staying. I arrived to a relaxed house of boys enjoying a beer. There might have even been cricket on TV. It took them no time at all to get into their suits and they topped it off with some awesome looking boutineers. So far this morning – I actually felt like I was inside Pinterest. Haha….everything just looked SO good!

Arriving at the venue we were, of course, greeted with so much more beautifulness it was difficult to take it all in. The yellow and grey theme just looked stunning! There was cute bunting for miles and the most amazing flowers adorning tables and decks and bars and everywhere imaginable. Stacey and Gareth’s ceremony took place on a lawn, in front of a tree covered in yellow ribbons rustling in the wind. To get to the lawn at Brick Bay you have to walk down a tree-covered lane. The trees have these crazy painted blue trunks. Its pretty surreal.

At Brick Bay you’re simply spoilt for choice with locations to take a bridal party for photos and we explored some of the gravelly pathways with art hiding around every corner. It was a GREAT afternoon. And then there was the reception…the party…the speeches…the dancing. What can we say!? The most good looking, friendly, smiling couple…..an incredible group of family and friends…..the most stunningly decorated venue……it was just a freaking awesome day. We feel blessed to have met these two and utterly honored that they chose us to be there and celebrate with everyone and tell the story in photographs!

Stacey, Gareth…we can’t thank you enough. I’m just packing up a little box of goodies for you now and am going to jump in my truck and pop them in your letterbox in person! We hope you enjoy your photographs as much as we enjoyed making them that day with you both :-)

Mandy and Andy – Engaged!

We love Mandy and Andy. Not just because their names rhyme, but because these two are people you want to be around! Mandy has the most infectious laugh, and Andy is absolutely smitten with his gal. We know their wedding will knock the socks off us. We can’t wait! Until then, we hope you enjoy some of their engagement photos we captured before Christmas!

It’s been five years!!

Today Alex and I celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary! What better way to celebrate than to photograph the lovely wedding of Saskia and Lance… especially when their reception venue (Duders in Devonport) is the same that we used for our big day! How coincidental is that?! But what I’m really looking forward to is our little treat of a holiday to Tonga next month. Seems a bit naughty in the middle of wedding season, but you only have a 5 year anniversary once right?

Wow how 5 years have flown. In that time we have finished student life, had one shoulder surgery, lived in Toronto for a year,  traveled to Cuba, definitely had a fair share of fights and make-ups, left a teaching career and a PhD, moved house 3 times, became parents to our beloved furry daughter, made special memories surfing and beaching together on summer holidays with our friend whanau, missed a plane flight, become Auntie and Uncle again and again, became FULL TIME in our business, travelled and photographed weddings in Europe, and so much more!

I’m not one for much PDA, but what I will say is that life with Alex is definitely an amazing adventure. SO MUCH FUN! Bring on the next 5!
