My and my ladies 🤍 I’ve photographed each one of these beauties’ weddings, all friends and guests on each other’s special days. Such a lovely group of ladies and I’m so grateful for the rolling referral system that we seem to have created. Long may it continue!

Just incase you ever wonder how far my dedication to making sure you’re comfortable on the day goes… Yes, it was rainy, muddy and wild, and I didn’t mind handing my shoes over one bit so the lovely Aloma here could stay clean and dry.

For the first time, in my 15 year career of photographing this crazy little thing we call love, I was unable to photograph a wedding due to illness. I’m so incredibly lucky and grateful to have not only a dear friend in Jo Currie] , but she is someone who photographs with a very similar style and approach to me. We have always said we would have each other’s back should the need arise, and last weekend it did. Ngā mihi nui e kare for stepping in for me on this day, making my couple and their family all feel so at ease, and capturing beautiful shots for us all. 📸 Jo Currie] edited by me.

It’s been a while… I know. I have been busy over winter working in my business, not on it, really. This page has been a bit neglected, as has my newsletter, and my verrry overdue website update. But life goes on. As do we. It’s all good. It’s all flowing. I’ve been busy. I’m sure you have been too. I’ll get posting again… maybe… haha. Here’s another because this will always be the one thing I never stop noticing or posting.

My mum recently fulfilled her lifelong dream of opening her own flower shop. But in her own style, and on her own terms. Her garage doors open when she feels like it, for as long as she wants, and with whatever she has foraged and found proudly on display. If you happen to catch her and les fleurs at the right hour of the day there could even be a pot of tea, or glass of fizz on the table….

I often imagine being that age again. That height, having that view at weddings, surrounded by legs and the bottom of champagne flutes, just searching out for that familiar hand to guide you through the sea of tall things.
