Inspired by their love of hiking and nature, Adam and Alice flew from the States to New Zealand to get their dream waterfall location for their September 2019 elopement.
They married at Milford Sounds in New Zealand, and spent the day searching for their perfect spot. “We had the best photographer! Kate set up our day perfectly, which had to be hard since she was all the way across the world,” said Alice.
Their biggest expense of their $7000 budget was, understandably, their flights. They kept things simple, with Alice wearing a dress from
Allure Bridals paired with Converse and a flower crown. As a hairdresser, she was able to do her hair and makeup herself. Adam’s suit was from Express. The only DIY project they undertook was painting the back of Alice’s white leather jacket with their initials.
They started their day with a magical boat ride around the sounds, searching for the perfect location. They settled on Bowen Falls, taking their vows privately underneath it. “It was the most magical day. Everything worked out perfectly and was exactly as we dreamed it. We’d recommend eloping to any couple!”

Epic Las Vegas Elopement: Ainsley & Sebastien
January 2, 2014
When I featured Ainsley and Sebestien's engagement shoot in September I dubbed it "the coolest engagement shoot to date". I was pretty sure that their wedding would be suitably kick ass too but nothing (and I mean nothing!) could have prepared me for this.
While I was hanging out with their wedding photographer Janneke Storm in Queensland, she started to tell me more about their upcoming elopement in Las Vegas. I made her promise then and there to send me the photos to blog afterwards. Luckily for me (and you!) she did.

They had a bubble machine on the ceiling, costume accessories, creepy mannequins, sparklers and black silk petals. Their seating was all thrifted to save cash.
A Pink & Leopard Print Themed DIY Wedding: Ele & Raph
July 23, 2012
As soon as I saw the sneak peek of Ele & Raph's wedding on their wedding photographer's facebook page, I knew I wanted to feature them... it's not really that difficult to see why is it? Could these guys be any more Rock n Roll if they tried?! The couple booked Rock n Roll Bride favourite Assassynation to capture their amazing day.
"What a great pleasure it was to have Sassy do the photography on our special day! I felt at ease as soon as I met her", began the bride. "Upon speaking to my (camera shy!) husband afterwards, he said exactly the same about Sassy, that she jumped at every opportunity to get that perfect shot and with simple instructions made him feel comfortable and contented. Ecstatic with the sneak peeks that Sassy had uploaded within less than 24 hours (wow!) onto her Facebook page, we both knew that Sassy is one Rock n Roll photographer and it would not have been the same without her!"

Renee and Micky met while backpacking around Australia. They love the beach and so wanted their wedding to reflect that, but alongside the punk rock edge that defines them both.
