Papua New Guinea adventures 2014

So I have been a little quiet for a while. THe main reason for that is that we have spent the last 3 weeks in the jungles of PNG.My parents, Grandmother and Aunty are volunteirs there. They run an awesome hospital in the middle of the swamp. It rained and rained and rained but overall we had a very special trip spending time with my family. Thought I would share some photos from our adventures.

Live like it’s heaven on earth

Sheena and Andy tied the knot in February at the amazing Abbeville Estate. It was a whirl wind romance that brought them together for one of the most amazing wedding days ever. Sheena arrived on time much to Andy's relief. She whispered sweet words to her parents before she was walked down the aisle by them both. A sweet ceremony concluded with hugs and high fives with the guests. Not needing to travel far the bridal party enjoyed homemade lemonade and sweet treats. They partied up a storm late into the night. Sheena and Andy you guys are an inspiration in so many ways. Enjoy a little sneak peek of the day.

Keep Calm and Say I DO

Kellie and Dan were married on a perfect day at Wynyard Quarter in Auckland. There wedding was unique with a slight rock and roll twist.  Kellie walked in to all her guest cherering and clapping.  The photoshoot was epic and we didn't even need to go far. At the reception we walked in to see the guest wearing masks of the bride and groom. It really was halerios seeing a room full of Kellie's and Dans.

Hope you enjoy a little sneak peek into their special day.
