Leon and Lucy held a two day Weddstival at Pukarunui Bay and River Ridge Retreat in the Catlins. There were so many very meaningful parts to their wedding celebration, the place, the gathering of people, the musicians who are all people very special to them, plants from Lucy’s parents local nursery. Lucy even gave the caterers special family recipes to make for the night. I’m still thinking about the apricot crumble almost 2 years later. I do have to admit to not lasting through the all night line up, but falling asleep on a bean bag under a disco ball at about 2am.

Matt proposed to Alex high on this hill, which is just near their home in Kurow. Alex had never heard Matt say this, but during the shoot he told me that he knew he was going to propose right away when they first met, because when you know, you just know.
