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!

TranzAlpine

2.8.18  POST CATEGORY  :  Together | Personal | Lifestyle | Family

The end of the school holidays saw us take a train trip across the Canterbury planes to the West Coast on the Tranz Alpine. It was lovely to have extended family with us, let's just say the tubing that took nearly a whole hour just to get into ones wetsuits, wouldn't have been nearly as much fun without everyone there! No one would know who we were talking about when we drop 'Mr Green' a newly invented term, into converstations from now on either unless you were actually there ;-) The Tranz Alpine is one of the top ten train journeys in the world and I can understand why, although being a fellow kiwi, it just seems 'normal'.

The cloud formations as we left Christchurch were pretty impressive...

Long grass and little legs

2.3.18  POST CATEGORY  :  Baby | Together | Children | Family
These days we don't just have 'urban sprawl', we have 'international sprawl' where one's family's can be spread far and wide. That often means we're not together that often and when the opportunity does come along, it's nice to 'cease the day' and get some photographs taken.  Click to view full blog post
Look at those lashes and cute little lips... its hard to wake anyone who looks this cute when they're asleep let alone a toddler, so we gave River as long as possible...
