Vintage wedding photo shoot at The Rippon Hall Wanaka

Here's a wee taster of a photo shoot I was involved with last Sunday… a story of love & loss, lust & betrayal. Orchestrated by the fabulous Tracey from the The Vintage Hire Co. and Crimson - Wedding Flowers by Tracey Morrow and using the amazing talents of Deirdre from Road to Beauty for make up, Shannon Vanwalt van Praag for hair and our 3 wonderful models Ashleigh, Miriam & Jamie, this was an afternoon I'm still buzzing from even a week later.

Watch this space for the remainder of the photos to find out the whole story.

Thanks to Laura at the The Rippon Hall for the loan of their stunning venue.

Slammerman: Conquering Wanaka and Beyond

Slammerman made a guest appearance at the Wanaka Wastebusters's 10th Year Anniversary carnival to promote his fabulous tool The Slammer. An awesome tool, The Slammer is a combo of an axe, spade, crowbar and grubber all in one.  It's a robust tool which makes difficult tasks easier. It's also simple to use and good for the posture, plus it's made locally in New Zealand.

Check out The Slammer ( website for more details.

Go, Slammerman, go!!

Tuatara Pizzeria Wanaka - End of an Era

Tuatara Pizzeria - one of Wanaka's oldest established restaurants - closed its doors to the public on Friday (24th October 2008). In its farewell night, demand for a last piece of the famous pizza was apparent as the restaurant was full from early evening right up to closing.

Many locals came to show their appreciation and respect for proprietors Craig and Al, who opened the restaurant in 1992.
