I recently was luckily to marry Lisa and Kane (pictured) in a medieval style wedding at a real castle! Most of the guests were dressed up and it was great. My bespoke wedding ceremony I created for them reflected the theme. I have a steampunk wedding coming up which will be fun!
I was first approached by Glenn as he wanted to do something special for Kelly. Life had been busy for them both he wanted to make sure Kelly knew what she meant to him. After 15 years of marriage it was time to renew this lovely couples' wedding vows.
We had a wonderful session where I heard their love story and all about their journey. Glenn set about making arrangements for possible ideas for their Vow Renewal Day.
Donna and Sean awoke to a stunner of a day in February. They created a magical ceremonial space at Seven Oakes in their gardens. Donna's favourite colour is purple so varying shades of purple were used in the bridal part and the decorations. Family is important to both Donna and Sean so they made sure their wedding was going to have all their nearest and dearest involved.
The setting was breathtaking in rural South Canterbury for Anna and Hamish. Grace Bolton, from Grace Bolton Photography, captured some fantastics memories of this gorgeous large, rustic wedding. Their whole day flowed beautifully. Anna and Hamish had a bespoke, personalised ceremony that featured a live singer, a horse and their fur baby
There were some clouds in the sky which helped cool the searing sun, creating a beautiful summers day. Anna arrived on a magnificent horse, led by her father, followed by her bridesmaids and fur-baby, Macy.
It's often a funny part in the movie.
The couple have just said their vows and the officiant asks for the rings. The best man pats down his suit, looks shocked and confused when he realises he doesn't have them. Everyone scurries around looking until a substitute (like a coke can tab or cheezel) is found last minute to replace the ring.
