So WOW!!! Central Otago - we decided to show you off and all that comes with you! In collaboration with a spectacular new website that launches on 01 September 2016; Silk and Honey, started by the creative genius Carla Munro (Director) of Black Robin Creative. Carla came up with this stunning styled shoot and it was planned and plotted with a few other creative muses in the area.
So off we all trotted to explore a region that I feel warrants more exposure. Central Otago is just GORGEOUS!. People should really flock to this region to get some epics shots. OLD WOMAN MOUNTAIN RANGE - Spectacular, fabulous and a little bit different. The professional team at Heliview Flights know this area like the back of their hands! They took the team up to a spot only the awesome pilot Richard (please see picture of him below) knows exist.
Using the Canon5Dmkiii and a whole bunch of other fabulous technological equipment that is a bit long to mention was the lovely Bel Jones - pretty awesome considering this beautiful, pregnant and glowing photographer jumped around in the snow to get such amazing shots of the lovely Kiera McLeod.
The dress was a 10 year old Astra Bridal number worn by Kiera - which is pretty special as it was worn by her Mum. Thank you Ms Andrea Gooch for all your help and kindness and letting us have it for the day. Lovely Neda of Pristine Steam Cleaning managed to get the dress primped and primed and honestly looking just like new!
Jenny Clark from Studio 24 as always made the most sumptuous bouquet and hair flowers, comprised of: Freesias, Roses, Ranunculus, Anemones, Chrysanthemum, Spray Carnations and mixed seasonal foliage.
The drop - Quartz Reef - oh yes - delicious it was..... Quartz Reef Methode Traditionelle Brut NV was the perfect tipple for these surrounds.

I am so excited about this amazing competition that I am part of. When Bonnie Jenkins, a super talented Australian photographer, came to Wanaka to shoot a wedding I was doing the plan began to form!
The incredible promotional shoot featured above followed with a team of Wanaka's wedding vendors coming together to help make 1 couple's dream wedding come true!
Have a look at the website and please spread the word - let any brides to be know to enter and be in to win this incredible wedding! The team is awesome and, while I am totally biased, Wanaka is truly the most beautiful place to get married.
The competition closes on the 20th April and the winning couple will be announced on the 2nd May 2016.
