Mel & Phil

28.11.18  POST CATEGORY  :  Together | Wedding | Celebration

Online dating... we've probably all got a friend who's dipped their toes into this online world and meet some potential serial killers, but Phil is definitely not one of them. He's a genuine, bubbly, loveable guy who's whole face lights up when he smiles. After much long distance driving to get to know Mel, the rather smitten Phil had trully fallen for miss Melanie and it wasn't going to be long before he popped the question...

Fast foward to a stunning day in pretty Akaroa, a day calm and warm and plonked between endless amounts of rain, it couldn't have been nicer. I was doing a little internal dance exclaiming to myself over and over "the light, the light, it's so lovely!!" Mel you looked beautiful and Phil you were suitably dapper and finished off with your Grandmothers hat, made just for the occasion. How proud she would have been to see you wearing it on your wedding day, 'at long last' I can imagine her saying.

Blair & Amber

20.11.18  POST CATEGORY  :  Together | Wedding | Celebration

I think it's unlikely that many girls would imagine they are going to meet the man of their dreams at the supermarket, but this is exactly what happened to Amber. She meet Blair in the deli section amongst the cold meats... it may have taken a while for Blair to melt her heart and make it his, but I can assure you their hearts belong to each other now, for definite, absolutely.

Stonebridge in Geraldine was the setting for the days events... a warm, slightly windy summery day...

Vincent Turns One

24.10.18  POST CATEGORY  :  Together | Lifestyle | Children | Family | Celebration
Its not every day you get invited to go to an Alice in Wonderland teaparty, of course they really should be everyday events because they are soooo much fun to attend. Vincent got to celebrate his very first birthday with his family and cousins in his Grandparents beautiful garden and although I'm not sure he really new what all the fuss was about, one thing I am sure of, is that he thought the bright blue cupcakes were pretty delicious, along with the little blue candles too!

Bonfires and Chinese Lanterns

2.8.18  POST CATEGORY  :  Lifestyle | Children | Family | Celebration
Genevieve celebrated turning twelve this year with some geocaching around a wetland with her friends, followed by lots of open fire cooking at the beach. Dampa bread, sausages, marshmallows and tinfoil wrapped bananas! Yum!! The girls all lit there own fires using a flint which was pretty impressive. The cake was a bonfire of course, and naturally it had to be on fire, a left over box of sparklers provided this element. The evening was finished off with eating cake and lighting Chinese lanterns, watching them float out to sea. A lovely way to finish a perfect evening. Click to view full blog post

Balloons at Elephant Rocks

21.6.18  POST CATEGORY  :  Lifestyle | Children | Family | Celebration | Landscape

Sophia has just turned four, and what better way to celebrate than with some ginormous pink and white balloons!! There was going to be four balloons of course... but maybe one balloon had other ideas. Of course the gas canisters said they'd fill 30 balloons, but managed a sum total of four. It didn't matter... you know it's going to be a good day when the lighting's stunning, the sky is thunderous and someone declare, "Can we do a funny face" a great family day out with a story to tell for years to come :-)

Happy Birthday Miss Sophia!!
