cinematic wedding films


Simply put, our goal is to create a beautiful and emotional piece of film that will make you both smile and cry at the same time. A film that, in 30 years from now, will take you back to the happiest day of your life and remind you what it felt like to look your best friend in the eye and say "I do".


our couples

Ashley and Aaron

Location: Private Residence, Karaka

These two were so sweet together. Aaron was obviously made quite speechless at how amazing Ashley looked because he had a wee bit of trouble getting his vows out! There was so much emotion on the day, happiness, excitement, love and laughter.

Enjoy :)

Maddy and Leighton

Location: St Michaels Church, Remuera

"I thought I had prepared myself quite well for today, but nothing could have prepared me for when I saw you walk down the isle"


Fraser and Anne

Location: Kumeu Valley Estate

1 Corinthians chapter 13 is a staple among wedding ceremonies. As someone who goes to a lot of weddings, I hear it a lot, but when someone says it with passion, like Fraser's Mum does at the start of this film, it can still ring true.


Allie and Logan

Location: Abbeville Estate, South Auckland

"It's all new... and I guess that's what's quite exciting really, seeing what the day will bring."

Watch and Enjoy as Allie and Logan tie the knot on a windy Spring day at Abbeville Estate in Auckland.

Angela and Sophie

Location: Jack's Point, Queenstown

These girls are simply awesome. They flew over from Brisbane because they couldn't wait any longer for Australia to sort out its marriage equality laws. NZ welcomed them with open arms and the Queenstown weather put on a show like you wouldn't believe.

Danielle and Reece

Location: The Wharf, Northcote Point

These guys have three parts to their relationship, Danielle, Reece and God. Such amazing energy on their day, especially from Reece and his boys as you'll see at the end of the film. Enjoy!

Dharni and Nikhil

Location: Manukau

WOW... What an experience filming these two beautiful people! Four days of glorious festivities, food, love, laughter and dancing (boy was there a lot of dancing!).

Katy and James

Location: Mudbrick, Waiheke Island

These two were just the sweetest things to witness on their wedding day. I don't think James' eyes left Katy after he saw her for the first time in her dress. So many gorgeous words were said and a simply perfect sunset to top it all off.

Joe and Margaret

Location: Miarangi Bay & Carrington Pump House

I love these two. Margaret and Joe have been good friends of mine for a long time and I was lucky enough to film their special day. Their love and trust in God was such a strong part of their wedding and their fun, bubbly energy infected everyone in the room.

Amanda and Jamie

Location: Fiji

Strolling down the beach on a tropical island at sunset sounds like a dream for most people but for Amanda and Jamie it was just one tiny part of their stunning, romantic and heart warming wedding day. 

Sarah and Vinnie

Location: Hawkes Bay

No matter how you pointed a camera at these two, they looked simply amazing on their wedding day. The spark between them was such a privilege to witness.
