Jo & Mark's Langdale Vineyard wedding

Written by Angela Penn on November 28th, 2013.      0 comments



Joanna & Mark are the kind of lovely souls that you know are meant to be together.  You can tell by the way they look at each other that their love is real and strong.  When I was going through their images I got goose bumps looking through their ceremony photos and the way Mark looks at Jo ... well it just melts my heart. You'd better just keep looking for yourself because my words don't do them justice.

When I got to Jo's parents' house a leisurely breakfast was going on.

So I snuck out to get some dress shots.  :)

And then I find the couples' beautiful daughter, Isabella. She doesn't mind the camera, not one bit!

Mark and his best man, Marty, have been friends since they were 3!  Now that's a friendship that has stood the test of time!

kylie & stu {married) - Akaroa 26 October 2013

Written by Angela Penn on November 14th, 2013.      0 comments

Wow.  Wow.  WOW!  I love these guys so much - such beautiful people and gorgeous hearts.  Ok so where to begin....  I met Kylie for a coffee catch up when she was sussing out photographers and we hit it off straight away. Hugged in the carpark type stuff. So she pretty much had to book me based on that.  Then I met a very quiet Stu at their engagement session - luckily for him, he comes with his trusty sidekick, the couple's (then) 10 week old son, Arlo (I know right?  Cute name).  Fast forward a few months and here we are in beautiful Akaroa, getting married at Mt Vernon Lodge.

Kylie & Stu meet when their eyes locked onto each other in a dingy pub one night... kidding, kidding. She's from the West Coast and he's a pom.  He was working over here and happened to go to the Kaikoura Seafest where they met.  Stu was meant to come home 2 months later but hello, falls in love instead!  So glad they did because I got to shoot their stunning wedding!

Stu's awesome ring is made from a 1937 half crown.  So cool!

My lovely friend Kelly Shakespeare helped out on the day and got some great shots of the boys getting ready.

The boys discover no holes for the cuff links.  So using a bit of Kiwi ingenuity (a craft knife) they fashion the holes themselves.

After all that hard work, it's time for a drink.
