Get back in your dress shoot with Kirstin & Matt

Kirstin & Matt had the prettiest back garden to photograph this get back in your dress shoot.

Great big trees, an old glasshouse and shed both giving a great back drop and texture, the sun streaming in was perfection! Not to mention their cute cat who tried to steal the show!

I love the detailing on Kirstin’s dress, very unique and gorgeous designed by French Designer Ugo Zaldi.


This lovely couple wanted an outdoor marquee wedding choosing to marry at Millars Vineyard, Mangawhai.
They had a live band and enjoyed seeing all their friends and family in the one place
Honeymoon destination was India and the Maldives.
Dress designed by French Designer Ugo Zaldi.
Grooms attire was Calvin Klein and Top Man

To Kirstin & Matt – All the best for your married life together and thank you for allowing me to share these photo’s. x
