Nicky & Toby


Queenstown, New Zealand

“We are without speech (which is rare)!

“They really capture the energy and all our amazing friends and families personalities. You captured the entire feeling and emotion of the whole day, and oh my god the dance floor is so funny!”

INCREDIBLE. Every single photo is amazing.”

Australians Nicky and Toby decided to wed in New Zealand.


A relatively short flight to Queenstown from Sydney but such a change in the landscape!  The mountains of the South Island can only be described a breathtakingly beautiful.  Getting married there in the month of March meant the end of summer and the start of fantastic autumnal colours.

In the world of awesome wedding couples, Nicky and Toby have it sorted:  They planned a celebration that was totally them, with friends playing a major role and all these guys know how to party!

Nicky was staying at Kohara Lodge in Queenstown – an awesome eco building elegantly integrated into the hillside.  I fell in love with this place as soon as I pulled up and it made for the perfect location to start the day

The guys started the day in true Queenstown style – with a FergBurger breakfast. It’s a Queenstown institution, with queues stretching permanently round the block. If you know, you know and if you don’t then go!

The ceremony was held at Peregrine Winery, just a 10-minute drive from Port Arthur, Queenstown. The vast landscape with the backdrop of the awe-inspiring mountains were nothing more than perfect for Nicky and Toby’s outside ceremony.  Nicky’s sister led the traditional Maori ceremony and it was incredibly moving and emotional. The Peregrine Winery hosts a wonderful barn that provided the perfect venue for the meal, speeches and some epic late night dancing.

New Zealand was just their first stop on what was to be an awesomely epic honeymoon as Nicky and Toby spent a couple of months travelling around Europe.  They are the best!

“We can’t thank you enough. You rock, I didn’t even notice you were there in any of this! Can not wait to share with all our friends and family, they will die.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, this means the world – you NAILED IT!”
