Hannah & Yasmin tied the knot on Sumner Beach in front of Cave Rock. The weather on their wedding day wasn’t perfect, but they were determined to have their ceremony on the beach – rain or shine! They had some massive umbrellas in case the drizzle didn’t clear, but as luck would have it, the weather cleared just in time, leaving moody skies and somewhat miraculously… a tourist-free beach!
Yasmin’s sari is by far my favourite wedding dress from this season, so luxe! It set the opulent gold and black theme that was carried over into the reception at The Beach Bar nearby.
Here’s my highlights from Hannah & Yasmin’s wedding…

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing Oscar & Felix on the beach at Sumner. Doing portrait sessions with kids is always heaps of fun, and the beach is the perfect spot for it, even in winter – and we had a perfect Christchurch winter’s day for it too, with loads of warm sunshine & blue skies.
There’s really no better spot to make sure the kids are having a great time during the shoot, and I had heaps of fun with these two gorgeous wee guys!
