A Nightmare Before Christmas Inspired New Zealand Elopement

Kat and Chris, from Australia, were married in New Zealand in 2019 and this year, on their anniversary, did a commemorative photo shoot and and vow renewal. We loved both sets of photos so much we’ve decided to share them both with you today. We think you’ll understand why when you see them!

“For the wedding we wanted a Nightmare Before Christmas theme with black, kooky details and for it to be cold”, Kat told us. “Think Disney if they made a horror movie! We turned the normal on it’s head. Fuck tradition. We wrote our own rules for the day. Our wedding day is most important to us not anyone else. We did what we want, how we want, when we want.”

Fifteen

rocknrollbride 9 year anniversary

When I tell people we’ve been together for fifteen years, they’re usually either surprised, impressed or a combination of the two. “Yes he was my first real boyfriend”, I say, “No we didn’t go to school together” and “Yeah, actually, I did get married pretty young.”

When you’ve been together as long as we have you find yourself counting on your fingers to work out exactly how many years have passed. Fifteen took me by surprise though. I was just sixteen years old when we first met (although we started dating shortly after my eighteenth birthday because it took you a while to convince me to go out with you!) so that means that on our next anniversary I will have known you literally half of my life… HALF OF MY LIFE! How is that even possible and when did we get so goddamn old!?

An Inked 10-Year Anniversary Session

Krystal and Jarrod have been married for ten years and so wanted to do a photo shoot which would document them and their relationship as it stands today. Jarrod owns a garage which is where the session took place.

“I knew Krystal and Jarrod were celebrating their upcoming 10 year anniversary and wanted to do a shoot for them capturing the love they still have for each other, especially showing their comfort together”, explained photographer Kelley. “Engagement photos tend to be so over-the-top with love and affection – it ’s new, they’re excited to be getting married, life is some what easy… But having been married for 10 years is an accomplishment – still liking (and loving) each other after all that time even more so!”

Lauren and Erik’s anniversary shoot is so damn cute, I just couldn’t resist featuring it even though they’re already married and know you all usually prefer to see actual weddings!

Colourful 10th Anniversary Party

Tenth anniversary party on a marsh (27)

Today’s feature isn’t a wedding, but I think when you see these photos you’ll understand why I’ve made an exception to share them! Jade and Matthew’s 10th anniversary party was held at a friend’s house. It was a completely DIY event. The couple are wedding photographers, so they even shot it themselves!

“When we decided to celebrate our 10th anniversary we knew we had to include some of our favourite things!” said Jade. “When we got married 10 years ago things were a little different, so we wanted to put our own little spin on our anniversary.”

“We decided to celebrate with a small group of friends with a backyard BBQ feel – no stuffiness, just good times. We wanted our friends to eat, drink, and be merry!! There were a lot of laughs. Matthew made sure of that with this two signature cocktails – a homemade strawberry infused gin fizz and smoked pineapple mezcal cocktail. They were delicious!!”

To My Husband on Our Anniversary

Blushphotography-brighton-19

To my computer game playing, gym going, kitty obsessing, sleepy head husband:
You are my rock, my biggest supporter and all of my happiest moments. I’m so proud to call you my husband.

When I try to think about what to write to you on our eight year wedding anniversary, I’m not ashamed to admit I’m a bit stumped. How can you adequately put into words a love that completely engulfs you, that makes you a better person, and that truly makes life worth living?

12th April 2008 feels like eight lifetimes ago, not just eight years. So much has changed, yet nothing has. On the outside our lives could not be more different, but inside everything is completely the same. I’m still insanely in love with you. I still get excited to see you every morning. I still want to cover you with kisses every night. You still drive me nuts with all of your ways. I still can’t load the dishwasher properly.
