Lake Taupo Wedding, New Zealand – Eddie and Jen

Jen_and_Eddie_0074

Eddie and Jen’s Lake Taupo Wedding in Kuratau, New Zealand was flat out amazing. This was not just a wedding day, but a wedding weekend! Friends and family travelled from across NZ and beyond, staying in nearby baches (kiwi holiday homes for all you non-NZers) to hang out, help out and enjoy being in one of the most beautiful parts of the country.

The most important thing you should know about these guys is that they are community builders. They exude so much warmth and welcome that you just want to be around them – they’re magnetic. Their wedding was as much a celebration of their friends and family as it was of their love. While planning the day they got to know and build relationships with people in the local community, some of whom came to the wedding (it was also how they randomly got to arrive by boat for the evening meal – a feat spontaneously organised 5 minutes prior). Food and drink was sourced from local suppliers and made by friends. And like that they just infused every aspect of the day with who they are. We loved how the next day, everyone meandered back to the marquee, soaked up the sun, swam in the river and ate the leftovers.

Check out the rings too. Their surname is Martin, so Jen designed a clever little logo featuring two House Martin birds for both wedding bands. Dang, we love good design! And her dress, and… well everything. Check it.

Northern Quarter Manchester Engagement | Sean and Helen

Manchester_Engagement-_0061

We had a brilliant time with Sean and Helen for their Northern Quarter Manchester Engagement shoot. These two showed us around their stomping ground, bought us a drink and took us to the art gallery. We shot through dusk and into the darkness when the bright lights of the city were switched on – one of the things we love about urban shoots. Big high five to Sean and Helen for hopping on a traffic island in busy traffic and enduring some stares for the final few frames of their engagement shoot!

These guys get married tomorrow! Very much looking forward to joining them for the day and being back in Manchester. It’s going to be ace!

Milton Keynes Engagement Photography | Liam and Chloe

Milton_Keynes_Engagement-15

Liam & Chloe had their Milton Keynes Engagement Photography taken at Ouse Valley Park – an unfamiliar place picked out almost at random from the map because it was about halfway between us (and these guys were kind enough to travel). We were keen to explore as Google said there was a cool looking aqueduct nearby so we walked up the canal, with the occasional stop for photos in the late afternoon sun. Liam & Chloe were a little nervous to be in front of the camera to begin with – most people are, including me! – but they were open to ideas and willing to try stuff, which is how the best photos are made. Thanks guys – you didn’t anything to worry about!

Somehow we managed to time everything perfectly, reaching the Iron Trunk Aqueduct just as the light became crazy good – the sun spilling it’s golden guts beneath the bridge. It’s every photographer’s dream time but I managed to put down the camera for a few quiet moments as the three of us took it all in from the top of the aqueduct – it felt like the right thing to do. We found a couple of other cool spots shooting through sunset and into twilight and then popped inside the local pub for a drink in front of the fire. A nice way to end the day!
