In order to maximise their time Laura and Mike chose to spend a couple of hours having their photos taken before their ceremony, at an insanely beautiful forest location behind Muriwai beach, north west of Auckland, NZ. Their ceremony was held at a private farm which also happens to be a sought after film set location for scenic stunners such as Xena, Warrior Princess. Guests were directed to the location by handpainted signs and and sat under the shade of a grand tree. The ceremony area was framed by a persian rug and homemade material strip bunting – a beautiful labour of love. The forecast was for a cyclone. The sun gods smiled and our cameras danced with joy. After the gorgeous ceremony guests were entertained with lawn games at The Tasting Shed whilst we made the most of that soft, glowy afternoon light taking more portraits. Please feel free to leave us some comment love if you enjoy this feature. All the essential vendor details are below. A huge thank you to Laura, Mike and their lovely families for making us feel like we are part of the family.

Were you in Auckland yesterday? It seemed like we had more rain in one day than we have had all year! Claire and Sam had huge smiles despite the inclement weather and somehow managed to make everything seem sunny. Below is a little preview to show why it doesn’t matter if it pours with rain on your wedding day. It is still possible to get great pictures with the right location and an amazing couple. Thanks Claire and Sam, you were fantastic!
Also a huge thank you to the lovely Keri-Anne from Dilworth Photography for her amazing help and skills!
Anna and Mundo chose Auckland’s Abbeville Estate for their big day. The historic buildings, exquisite grounds, friendly staff and no curfew make it the ideal location! We thought the light was gorgeous in sun and shade and it had a huge variety of beautiful settings for the photography.
We loved the orchard setting with it’s vast green backdrops and flattering light. We brought along a traditional apple picking ladder to help set the scene.
Mundo is from Mexico so the couple decided to have their post reception celebration fiesta style in Abbeville’s country barn! The decorations complimented the already quirky decor. Some of our favourite photos were taken in here.
The reception room at Abbeville is simple and elegant with lots of pretty white light. It was easy to move around the tables and get great shots of all the guests.
Thank you, Anna and Mundo – we had a wonderful time and were thrilled to share in your day!
Venue: Abbeville Estate
Flowers: Blossom Wedding Flowers
Here is a little post on a magazine shoot we did during our winter months. We gave our models those yummy little heaty hand warmer things but unfortunately they can’t be used during photo taking time. The girls were real troopers because it wasn’t nearly as warm as they make it look! Toward the end of the shoot we noticed someone had lit a fire across the way (not us, we promise!). It created THE most beautiful foggy effect with the late afternoon sun! “Um Ladies… would you mind trekking across that muddy field into the patch of light where you can’t see a thing???” …. PERFECT!
