Avoca Beach, on the Central Coast of NSW Australia, is where I grew up pretty much. I was a Nipper there for a few years, which rather than priming me for my future as an Iron Man really just gave me a distaste for sand and speedo’s. It’s a beautiful area and thankfully Bonnie and Paul asked me to capture their wedding there, because it gave me a chance to exorcise those sandy-budgie-smuggling demons! They had the ceremony at the Avoca Beach Theatre, which was just lovely. We got some keen interest from the fishing community! I love this sequence. Paul is all like “That wave was close!” Bonnie trying to make friends with the locals. Paul actually made his own wedding cake!

Melanie and Dan were great fun to shoot, they were up for anything and even though she cut her foot and it rained on her wedding day she was determined to have a good time. We met in Brisbane, Australia for their Lifestyle/Engagement Shoot and took to the Roma St Parklands where we strolled around and played on the swings whilst Dan  tried to make friends with the spiders and lizards. Back in  New Zealand for the wedding, it was a typical Wellington summer’s day: Cold, Rainy, Foggy. Despite all this we managed to get out and take some great shots. Isn’t that the most awesome cake?! I even got them to jump the railing on one of the best look outs in Wellington and pose on a wee cliff! Congratulations guys, and all the best!

A couple of weeks ago I had the great fortune to follow Fuse Circus and The Circus Trust’s float around the Cuba St Carnival.  They had customised a crane in to a Steam Punk machine, complete with pretty girls hanging from a hoop! The parade was great and although I was complaining about sore feet afterwards I had nothing on the performers who put on a great show the whole way!
