Amelia & Todd {Wedding}

Todd wrote a list. A list containing all the things he’d want in an ideal woman. When he met Amelia, the list suddenly need exist no longer! So he discarded it. …Not so long ago he came across that list again… And grazing over it, he realized Amelia ticked off every single ideal on it!

Amelia is all about history. She loves things of significance. She grew up in the little town of Ward on the way up to Blenheim. St Oswalds Church was the little chapel that sat right around the corner from her parents farm. She dreamed of getting married there one day. She wasn’t sure that was at all going to be possible… So Todd did what he could to help even a smidgeon of the dream coming true, and proposed to her at the alter inside St Oswalds last December. The beautiful thing is… Amelia’s dream did come true and as well as becoming engaged there…. they became husband and wife there!

Last Saturday felt like a burst of Summer and it was our utmost pleasure to be prancing around the countryside of Blenheim with such gorgeous people as each step of their perfect day took place!! :)

In the not too distant future, Amelia’s parents will be moving on from their beautiful home where they have lived for 25 happy years! It was so important to Amelia to have so much of her wedding day where she grew up. The getting ready, the after drinks and family photos… and all of the creative portraits too. And it was totally a treat for us as photographers! :)

 Up in Blenheim, Doug is hanging with his old time friend Todd. I have to say, the t-shirt combined with the expression is price less!!!

I love this shot. As Amelia looks towards her bedroom as a child… This screams to me ‘Never.loose.your.inner.child.’ Between Amelia and Todd, I highly doubt they will!

So cute, so quaint. Beautiful St Oswalds. That little church that sits on the side of the road when travelling from Kaikoura to Blenheim.

Not everyone’s a public speaker.. speeches can be nerve wracking… But so long as you speak from the heart… You can’t go wrong. Amelia’s Dad sure did!
