Central Otago Wedding Photographer - Becky & Mike's Stunning Omakau Summer Wedding

Becky & Mike became Mr & Mrs Holmes on the hottest summer day that I ever remember.

This lovely laid-back couple spent the morning in Clyde preparing for the wedding before heading out to their ceremony at the gorgeous venue of Homestead & Woolshed on Racecourse in Omakau.

St Bathans was our main photo location spot followed by the iconic Omakau railway station.

The gorgeous summer’s evening was spent with speeches, banquet food, games and dancing under the stars helped by the awesome Neil Chilton.

Some of my personal favourite moments of the day include πŸ’– Becky & Mike’s children Luke & Scarlett sharing their first dance with them πŸ’– Mike & his Best Man brother Scott cruising to St Bathans on their Harley Davidsons πŸ’– Luke as the ring bearer for his parents πŸ’– So many tears of joy and emotion πŸ’– The epic landscape of Central Otago πŸ’–

Lisa & Mark's Wanaka Elopement Wedding

Lisa & Mark were in touch with me at the beginning of the year to start planning their gorgeous Winter elopement wedding in Wanaka. Having snow was the big dream for the day.

As everything turned out, they had everything they wanted. A perfect weather day with oodles of snow - how much better could it get! After hair & make-up created by Deirdre from Road to Beauty and completed by stunning flowers & button holes by Tracey from Crimson Wedding Flowers, we headed into the epic snowy landscape. The intimate ceremony was conducted by Liz Maluschnig up on the Pisa Range. Logan - Lisa's son - had a very important part to play during the ceremony and after the 'I dos' had been said much fun was had playing in the snow.

Later on we headed out to Lake Hawea for more photos and to enjoy some time there in the beautiful late afternoon light. Altogether it was the most wonderful and fun afternoon celebrating Lisa & Mark’s big love for each other.

A Central Otago Elopement Wedding

Winter in Central Otago... the most romantic setting for a wedding with stunning snow-capped mountains and the most welcoming people in New Zealand.
