Jo & Jordan's wedding at Northbrook Park, Surrey

My first wedding back in the UK this year, and what a gorgeous day! Perfect spring weather, a stunning venue, exquisite flowers and decor, and a super lovely and relaxed couple surrounded by their loved ones. The pretty hidden gardens at Northbrook are magical, and I found a couple of gorgeous off the beaten track spots too, for variety. Have a look...

Lena & Nick's wedding at Castaways Resort, Karioitahi Beach

No more lovely place to spend Easter Sunday than beautiful Krarioitahi beach. Lena and Nick first met when Lena arrived in Auckland from Germany as an exchange student and stayed with his family - they fell in love. So romantic! Their small and informal elopement style wedding was filled with so much love and warmth, and I absolutely adored Lena's water colour dress!

Dani & Dylan's engagement session at their secret beach.

On a Monday night, couple of week's a go, Dani and Dylan left the kids at home and we went for a walk on their favourite beach near Titirangi and took some beautiful photos. It's their hidden gem beach, so I won't say where exactly, but it was a magical evening and I can't wait to capture their big day in March!

Farah & Mario's wedding at The Lodge, Mudbrick

I'm always excited to shoot a wedding on Waiheke. Even though I'm working, getting on that ferry and travelling to a beautiful island feels a bit like going on holiday. Especially on a glorious summer's day that we had for Farah & Mario's wedding earlier this month. It was also the first time I visited the new Lodge at Mudbrick Vineyard. A totally perfect place for a stylish family wedding.

Samar & Joel's wedding at The Officers Mess, Fort Takapuna

I loved the style, warm family feel and wonderful mix of cultures at Samar and Joel's wedding last month. It was rather windy (hello Auckland spring time!) so they couldn't have the wedding outdoors, which I first felt a little disappointed about. But having the ceremony in one of the old Barracks was just so beautiful...

Samar & Joel's engagement session at Bethel's Beach

Ahh it is good to be back in Auckland! I've always loved the West Coast beaches, but after 5 months in London, I was totally blown away by the beauty of Bethells Beach on Tuesday night. Samar and Joel were the loveliest couple to photograph. Like most my couples they said they weren't good at having their photos taken... well, I beg to differ!

You'd be surprised how many couples tell me that they are super camera shy. If you are worried about posing for your wedding photos, you're certainly not the only ones! Most of us aren't used to professional photo shoots, so the prospect may be a little daunting, or you might not know what to expect...
