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!”

Wedding Images that push the boundaries…Dolce has it covered!

Win at “With this Ring Bridal Show“ Wedding Photography is definitely something we’d be taking very seriously if we were to ever dive into the world of Martial Bliss…. You see the truth is with a  large percentile of weddings you will find the suits are returned, the wooden rounds, table runners, photo booth props, wishing wells and  mason jars are quickly  auctioned off to the next over zealous brain hunting bride, the cake gets eaten, the flowers wilt in water, and the dress is hung in the unlikely case it will some day don your daughter…. unfortunately photos are one

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
