Julie & Alan’s Big Day – Settlers Country Manor, Kumeu

On Friday, we were lucky enough to photograph Julie & Alan’s wedding out at the stunning Settlers Country Manor, in Kumeu. Well the weather didn’t play the part, but what a bunch of troopers this wedding party were. Not only did they brave the rain, but they also climbed out on slippery planks for the shot the bride and groom were after. This just go to proves that the weather won’t limit you from getting those photos you want. Because Alan is from the UK, they decided to go with a London, theme which was carried through all the small details – from the transport for the guests, to the cufflinks and even the table names – I love when couples make their wedding day unique and all about them.

I hope you love your sneak peek guys and can’t wait to show you the rest.

They say a picture tells a thousand words, well I reckon a video must add a thousand more. I am now really excited to be able to combine both photography and video together into a new exciting product for my clients so we can tell the whole story. I’d love to say a huge thanks to Ruby and her family for allowing me to have a play with this new product, and I am really excited to share it with you here.


Ruby is such a character and a huge lover of dance. She is currently dancing with Jayes Dance which is how I meet her mum, and I knew as soon as i meet her she would be perfect for this type of session. I hope you all love her video and stills as much as I have enjoyed creating them.

Check out her little video here


And now onto some of my favourite stills from the session. There were so many to choose from that it was hard to limit it down
