A Wedding like this belongs in a Movie.

He was her rock, and she was his Ruby ….Newlyweds Ciaran and Ruby I don’t really believe in cliches but meeting these two it was love at first sight. With my wedding attendance history its my hope that every day rolls on out like that of a well rehearsed Oscar nomination. With many a run sheet and flow chart available, a back up plan for the back up plan and the bridal emergency kit on board I’d  “push play on this soiree!”

“Whisky in a Teacup”… Newlyweds Rob and Sarah

3 outta 3 aint bad! My love of country music is somewhat frowned upon by some and I find its usually those whom have not been privy to this incredible toe tapping, hat tipping genre that makes us city gals giddy.  The torn jeans, the seductive twang, the country boy manners that echo…yes ma’am…. Its fair to say when it comes to ticking those boxes in search for your perfect lad the answer is simple  “Save a horse and ride a cowboy” and thats exactly what this young las did… meet newlyweds Rob and Sarah.

“It was a 50 shades of Gay Soiree”…. Newlyweds Josh and Mike

“One mans junk is another mans treasure”- Austinvilla Estate Wedding If you had of told me 29 years ago Id be in attendance at this particular wedding I would have assumed I was the one twirling down the isle in layers of tulle about to marry the man of my dreams….truth be told I couldn’t have been more wrong. I’d certainly like to think I had my finger on the pulse but at that age I more likely had my finger up my nose. It appears that Josh somewhere in between those adolescent years he realised that love is far

Do that to me one Moore time – Newlyweds Nathan and Nicole

Good things come to those who wait… Dolce Wedding Photography For Dolce Wedding Photography it’s something we tend to keep to ourselves, the fact we’ve been praying all morning for a cloudy ambush of a fifty shade cumulous whilst singing a powerful grammy winning rendition of “Im only Happy when it Rains” may have been a  little inappropriate for the time and place…. you see every bride has a vision of how their perfect day will unfold, everything will go to plan, the groom will shed a tear as she floats down the isle in her layers of lace and tulle,

Music up Tailgate Down -Newlyweds Cilla and Andy

“Word of Mouth” “I heard it through the grapevine” “verbal evidence” call it what you wish, but to me its undeniably the most powerful form of advertising. On this occasion gossip prevailed and again Dolce Wedding Photography was thrown into one of the most memorable days that ended up a favourite of the season. Over a hill and far away one couple, an entourage of their finest companions, 2 smooth rides and a dog called Maddox proved that sometimes the road of life can take unexpected turns and you have no choice but to follow it to end up in

Mr and Mr Fabulous -Newlyweds Garth and Dan

In the 11th hour… Dolce Wedding Photography was handed the power….. I’m still not at that stage in my life where I’m ready to share everything I have with another human being, but i’ve been shooting for Dolce Wedding Photography for some time now and  I’m not at all shy in saying I have a pretty good handle on how this “I do” gig goes down

Newlyweds Sam and Simon – Dolce Wedding Photography Christchurch

Meet the Marshalls and a Pug called Bug – When tapping in those three words “Wedding Photography Christchurch” or “Christchurch Wedding Photography” as a business you would hope to be making an appearance quite early in the piece…See in my line of work especially in Christchurch its a full-time 6 month gig which lies almost dormant over the winter seasons. If your anything like me scrolling anything past those first 2 pages and I’ve done my dash, believing word of mouth is and always will be the most powerful form of advertising and most successful in making those bookings.

Another one close to my heart- Dolce Wedding Photography One of the best parts of being a professional wedding photographer and the owner of Dolce Wedding Photography  is watching people in love and Brigette and Corbin are the perfect example  🙂  On this occasion there was also a huge part of me that could relate to the position the beautiful bride was in, her dad had become sick and they had to bring the wedding forward…we picked up on the urgency and were there to make it happen!

“Save a Horse and Ride a Cowboy” -Newlyweds Louise and Jimmy

“You and Tequila” and a glass of Sangria. Its something I keep rather quiet as my credibility goes from hero to zero in a matter of seconds so Ive been told. My love of country music is somewhat frowned upon by some, usually those whom have not been privy to this incredible toe tapping, hat tipping genre. That seductive twang, the story of heart ache, the girl you met by the lake whilst peddling a big red tractor…now if that ain’t what dreams are made of I don’t know what is…..

Go Big or Go Home…..

Blue Steel Swag weds a Pocket Full of Dynamite – Dolce Wedding Photography As a Wedding Photographer stepping onto the Air New Zealand flight I knew i’d have my work cut out for me with this one. It was clear to me these two had gone for the the “upsized” option when planning their nuptials and this was going to be on hell of a hum dinger affair with all the bells and whistles. Go Big or Go home sprung to mind when I spotted the 70 something bottles of Moet, the 12 + two bridal party, the 3 choppers, the
