Amanda & Simon's sunny Cossars wedding

Written by Angela Penn on March 26th, 2015.      0 comments

Wow, this day could not have been more different weather-wise! It started off looking pretty miserable but ended up being a scorcher!  These two must be blessed!

So the day started like this... overcast, grey, drizzly. Inside was a hive of activity and the smell of breakfast was DIVINE.

Where do I even BEGIN posting about this beautiful couple? I think I may as well jump right in and show you the photos ...  So many smiles editing these!

When I walked into Hannah's parent's house the first thing I saw were these gorgeous shoes - squeeee!!!!

Trying to get into the dress was the first hurdle! Luckily Hannah had 4 gorgeous bridesmaids to help.

Just stunning, Hannah.

Hannah puts some finishing touches on her mum.  Yes Vanda, you're caught on camera.  ;D

Then time for a special thank you gift from Hannah to her bridesmaids.

And just enough time for some photos with mum and dad.

Dad Alistair, walks his stunning daughter towards her husband to be.  I love how these guys are holding hands. x

These next two images are when Sam just couldn't help himself and went in for a kiss.  And why wouldn't he?

The beach is this couples' favourite place.

A must-stop-at in Sumner was the knitting container.  I'm not sure Hannah's new love for knitting will take over the surfing though.

And to Trent's Estate Vineyard.

Some of the guests played petanque...

While others just took some time out.

The guests were asked to sign ... a surfboard!  Of course!

Hannah & Sam - you make such a beautiful couple, you have amazing friends and a wonderful family. I know this because I was constantly asked if I'd had something to eat, a coffee, or if I wanted a seat.  Lovely, lovely people.  You have such a wonderful support network.  I loved your wedding. xxx

pip + geoff's kate sheppard gardens wedding

Written by on February 10th, 2013.      0 comments

Pip and Geoff met at school, and by all accounts it took them a while to get together.  They are avid runners (possibly doing the Boston Marathon soon, huh guys?) & cheese lovers (check out their cake!).  And they had the most amazing wedding.  It was held at Kate Sheppard House & Garden and is absolutely beautiful there.

Pip goes over her vows ...

While I take some shots of her dress which was made by Amy of Aeon Dressmaking - it is stunning!  Her shoes are from Myer in Brisbane.

Pip's sister Anna gets ready before helping the bride into her dress.  (I'm a sucker for pointy ballet feet).

Then a few family photos inside this gorgeous homestead before the ceremony!

So I leave the girls to it and sneak outside to get some crowd shots and find some man-love going on!
christchurch wedding photography 0012

Geoff sees his gorgeous bride walking down the path and there's hardly a dry eye in the house.  This great shot of Pip and her dad was taken by my second shooter Oswald from Oswald Photography.  :D

Ooh and the cake! It was a cheese cake! Not a cheese cake, cheese cake, but a cake made from 3 types of cheese!  By Canterbury Cheesemongers.

The full moon that night was a beautiful end to a magic day.  What an honour photographing Pip & Geoff's wedding.  I thought it was pretty perfect and I know they did too. x
