Elsa + Pete // France

Elsa and Pete and their delightful families were the perfect combination of everything that is magical about French and Irish culture..... cue the dramatic Fort Saint-André in the picture postcard village of Salins-les-Bains in Eastern France. Combine that with incredible local food and wine, a bus load of Guinness including a pump with chiller to get the perfect pint... the most vivacious generations of guests who were all up for the celebration of the year.... during the meal as is custom, every table took turns to start a Mexican wave of cheers, saluts and sláinte around the room...as you can see by the insane amount of glasses raised cheers photos! (every photo shows a different wave) The Craic was mighty indeed!
Such a glorious celebration of life and love that we were honoured to be a part of...

Bec + James // New Zealand

We have just landed in New Zealand for Frank's first trip to meet our Kiwi family so we thought it was pretty appropriate to blog one of our weddings that we shot whilst we were here last time.  The gorgeous Bec and James got married on Bec's family farm and then headed in to Oamaru for the party. We loved being a part of this wedding and there was something so lovely about seeing a London bus carrying wedding guests over the Kiwi landscape.. :)

Liz + Clive // new zealand

Not sure we can sum up the few days we spent with Liz and Clive for their wedding. We were literally taken in by them and their family and friends. We spent the weekend staying in their guest house on the lake.. followed by a day trip on Liz's boat across the lake where Pete jumped off a pretty big cliff in to the lake.. and then later on, in the PITCH BLACK we got taken to 'The Squeeze'.. (very thin rock passages culminating in a magical hot water spring waterfall dip.) which was in equal parts terrifying and incredible..

It was bloody incredible and we hope these photos will give them equally amazing memories because we will never forget our time with them.. x
