Mantells Wedding Photographer: Melissa & Brett

110410-Brett&Melissa-BLOG-10

Melissa & Brett live in Cananda but came back home to NZ to be surrounded in their closest family and friends on their wedding day. I didn't get to meet Melissa & Brett before the wedding but it didn't matter in the slightest. When I arrived at Melissa's parents house the morning of the wedding, Melissa was calm, collected, absolutely radiant and ready to marry her man. I LOVED that we had photographs before the ceremony - wedding days always seem to go more smoothly when the majority of photographs are taken before. Melissa & Brett, thank you so much for the incredible privilege it was to capture your beautiful intimate wedding. I wish you a lifetime of happiness together xx

Queenstown Wedding Photographer: Melissa & TeMarae

110405-Melissa&TeMarae-BLOG-7

A few weeks ago I was incredibly fortunate to fly to beautiful Queenstown to capture Melissa & TeMarae's wedding at the Heritage Hotel. I photographed their engagement a few months back and got to know a little more about this couple, I saw how they interacted with each other and it was beautiful to watch. Melissa & TeMarae's wedding was everything I knew it would be and more. I love how they chose to do a first look and have photographs before the wedding, to maximize the time spent with closest family and friends. It was such a relaxed, beautiful occasion that I felt privileged to be part of xx
