WeddingSimon & Rose’s Wedding Day – Cromwell/WanakaLisa Davidson Photography

Simon & Rose's Wedding Day  - Cromwell/Wanaka

Simon & Rose married on the farm at Kidd Gully on a overcast day in March.  Rose and her bridesmaids/bestman were so relaxed on the morning of the wedding, while Simon and his crew were busy running around, picking up chairs that were being blown over and moving the ceremony location slightly into an area out of the wind.  Down in Cromwell we were a little oblivious to the wind as it was not blowing at all where we were.  By the time we arrived at the ceremony the wind had calmed and the boys had everything sorted.  It was a fantastic spot overlooking beautiful scenery. 

The photo’s were all done around the farm.  Time disappeared quickly, and then we headed back to the amazing reception area that they had created under the stars.

The reception area looked amazing.  They had spent so much time creating this amazing setting for friends and family, and they were so lucky with the weather.  Rose had made not one but three beautiful wedding cakes (they all looked amazing).  They arrived to the reception by jet boats to the guest’s surprise.

Thank you so much Rose & Simon for sharing your day with me.  I so enjoyed my time you all, and wish you all much happiness in your future together xx

Wanaka Wedding - Pip & Heath







Another beautiful Wanaka wedding.    It is not often that i get to a wedding and haven’t actually meet the bride and groom – but this happened to be the case with this wedding.  Although we had good intentions of meeting up over Christmas while they were down in Wanaka – we just couldn’t make it happen.  Not that it mattered, as they were such a relaxed couple that it felt like we had meet before and they we just so easy to be around.  A great bunch of friends joined them in the wedding party and we had lots of laughs during the photo shoot – although they weren’t that interested  in having photos done!

The wedding was beautiful, and took place at The Olive Grove in Wanaka.  I hadn’t been to this venue before as they have just starting holding weddings there in the last couple of years – but what a lovely spot, with a beautiful outlook over the lake.  From there it was onto some photos and over to Criffle Station for the reception.

Thank you guys for a fun day!!  It was great getting to know you, and your great friends and family.  I wish you all the best xx

Blair and Peta’s beautiful Wanaka Wedding

From the moment I arrived at Blair’s parents home in Wanaka to meet and discuss Peta and Blair’s upcoming wedding, I was made to feel so totally welcome.  Blair’s parents Fergus and Lynette had just completed building their beautiful new home in Wanaka, and it was such a special spot to celebrate such an amazing wedding.

I knew when I first meet Peta and Blair that this was going to be a beautiful wedding, surrounded by amazing family and friends.  They were such a neat couple.  Kind, respectful, caring – and with the coolest kids!!

The wedding took place down at the outlet in Wanaka with the groom and groomsmen arriving by jet boat, and the girls making an amazing entrance by helicopter.  It was a stunning setting, and with it being the first visit to New Zealand for a lot of the guests – I think they were pretty blown away by our amazing country.  After the ceremony we flew to the top of the mountain for some fun and photos with the wedding party.

Blair and Peta I wish you both a long life together filled with love, laughter and much happiness.  I so enjoyed our time together.  You both have such a kind caring nature, and I hope to catch up with you again when your back in NZ xx
