I love travelling to new spots for weddings. Its the thrill of hunting out awesome locations, the enjoyment of working and making friends with new suppliers and of course I do enjoy taking wee Florence for an adventure through the country.

I first met with Sarah and James at their friends wedding earlier this year in Ohau. As soon as I saw them busting some serious moves on the dance floor that night, I knew their wedding was going to be tops. Combined with a great hangout together in Auckland, I was super looking forward to this wedding.

And it didn’t disappoint.

Have a look for yourself.
