I met Zoë about seven months (?) ago when I finally decided to join the gym and the two of us bonded over exercise machines. Yes, really.

However, by the time I had met Zoë she was already engaged to Paul and was busy planning her wedding. Of course, I was very excited to hear that my good friend Moira would be the main photographer for her day, so naturally I jumped at the chance to second shoot.

And what a stunning day it was- despite Wellington throwing one of its signature scorcher days at us! Zoë and Paul made just about everything for their French-themed wedding, including the table favours that Zoë painted herself! All of them! :D

Of course, I have to mention what an absolutely gorgeous and relaxed bride Zoë was- it really shows on the photos! 
It was a beautiful day and an absolute honour to have been able to share it with Zoë and Paul - congratulations to both of you!

When my good friend Altus called me up a while back and asked me if I could help him out with a wedding I absolutely jumped at the chance! This would be my first morning wedding I have ever shot and it ended up being a nice change as well as challenge and I really enjoyed it! 

Stephan is one of Altus's oldest friends and I must say I was pretty honoured that Altus entrusted me to help him out at such an auspicious occasion! Alicia and her maid of honour Anne-Mi were lots of fun to be around and they happily let me go about my business while I was running around taking photos and soaking up the athmosphere.

Alicia was quite a relaxed bride and it shows in every photo! 

Congratulations, Stephan and Alicia! I wish you only happiness ahead and enjoy your photos!
