I literally love these men.  I've only known them for a few short hours, and in that time I fell in love not only with them but there insanely great families and all the people that surrounded them to support and love and hold, as they told each other that they did, and will forever.  

My heart raced, I cried way too many times, my mascara ran ferociously down my face, I think I inherited 14 new smile lines from grinning so much.

I want to thank you AUSTRALIA for sending these fine men my way, you snooze you loose, perhaps its time to re-asses the meaning of the word love because your missing out on seeing great humans tell each other just how much they care and adore one another, and as we all know, love is what makes the world go round.


xxx  Thank you Fabian and Anthony, you will forever be in my heart.


P.S the rainbow featured at the beginning followed me (or perhaps I followed it??)  all the way to Queenstown.  A sign perhaps xx

A great way to start the season

If your ever wondering if September or October are good months for celebrating a wedding.... well I high five and say YES.... The weather can be unpredictable however the light when its a good day is MAGIC. Kicking off 2012/2013 wedding season, with beautiful light, beautiful surrounds and BEAUUUUTIFUL people.

Happy wedding day Dania and Scott x

Many thanks to Mr Jim Pollard who accompanied me and my madness for the day and another big thank you to Bendemeer Estates for allowing us to venture on to this piece of heaven.


Sometimes our universes combine and whether it be a person reaching out to say hi or an accidental meeting some random day. Occasionally you have an instant connection with that person and know that somehow you will always be friends.  I felt that way about the amazing Kate Holland.  She emailed me a few years ago and I just felt this incredible bond and fascination with this truly amazing HUMBLE, BEAUTIFUL person.  Not only is Kate a great friend she is also the brain child and dedicated creator of Magnolia Rouge.  She, I believe has offered a product to NZ brides that no-one had tried.  Her eye for details and gorgeousness (is that a word) taste in all things fabulous has put her in the highly acclaimed category worldwide of one of the best wedding bloggers in the WORLD.  Her audience is spread wide and her posse of photographers that share their beautiful weddings reaches from one continent to the next.  Kate has also created the highly acclaimed online magazine Magnolia Rouge Magazine.  This publication has featured some of the worlds best wedding photographers on the covers and is packed with information, beautiful details and STUNNING real weddings.  It's a perfect publication for inspiration and directory to some of the best vendors.

I felt very lucky to be one of those candidates that was featured in the last 'episode'.

Kate you heart is big, your smile is HUGE and your ability to find beauty amongst everything is inspiring..  Thank you for not only being a great friend but also for your insane talent that makes me swoon every time.

Lots of love.


Sometimes you get to be part of magic. Sometimes you get to meet the coolest of cool people, the type of people you want to get to know, who make you laugh, who share your secret obsession with cheesy pop stars, good lovely, kind, FUN, clever people!

This was these people.  Their friends, families, all beyond amazing and fabulous!!!

Kate and James, may you be blessed with beautiful moments daily.  Thank you for letting me be part of your SUPER DOOPER amazing day!!!!!


This just happened

This just totally happened, and I think my lovely (GORGEOUS) couple would high five and double fist pump in agreement that the day could not have been any better, weather wise!!   MAGICAL and totally on cue for what we needed. These two are slightly cool, both talented young doctors.... and fairly good looking as well..... double whammie



So the travel aspect of my job is delightful.  I get to travel to crazy cool locations with mega views and kind hearted people.... My goal is to hit Europe next year... a goal that if I put out to the universe, she may answer.  However for now I am content with my backyard because as said in many other posts, we have one of the most precious scenery in the WHOLE ENTIRE world and I for one am pretty stoked to call myself a Kiwi. Jessica and Justin travelled 9,158 miles to tie the knot.. all the way from one East Coast to another.. in my mind thats pretty damn awesome!!

Just a few xx
