Gabe + Leon


I first met Gabe in 2010 when we both worked in a bar together in Christchurch. We had a lot of fun back then so it was really incredible to get to catch up 10 years later for her and Leons big day and boy – it was magic ✨

We had such a fun morning with Gabe getting ready at her family home (which was SO stunning). She was pampered by the queen Kendall for hair and makeup and in-between I zipped into the city centre to join the lads for a few getting ready shots. I knew Leon was going to be a lot of fun, knowing Gabe but from the minute I joined them it was a bundle of laughs all day long.

They had the most beautiful ceremony under the big tree at Avebury House (ps their amazing celebrant Victoria was AMAZING) with the coolest walk-and-fork reception at The Welder in the city. Everything about the day was absolutely incredible, and I was super excited when these two wanted to adventure up the hills for sunset. They trusted me with the timings and it couldn’t have worked out any more spectacular with one of the most amazing sunsets over the city I have ever seen. We then whisked back down to dance the night away.

These two has the dream team of vendors who made the whole day so chilled and so epic. I honestly couldn’t recommend any of these people more, I still can’t get over how incredible this day was with such amazing people. I could ramble for hours about every little thing, but I will let you view all of the goodness below which includes a pearl cape, the funniest bridal party, margaritas, and SO much more X
