Our Engagement Shoot...

Considering it has been over a year since I last blogged or shared any aspect of my life with you all I think we need to back peddle and start back in February of 2015, there is a journey we have taken and we better not leave any part out.

February 24th, a week after my 27th birthday, saw us jet setting back to paradise. Queenstown was waiting for us and we couldn't get back sooner. 
With three days and a full schedule of wedding planning appointments we started our short skip, hop and jump over the pond to our beautiful neighbours in New Zealand. 
We were delayed on our flight into Queenstown so we were running late for our first appointment that evening and one appointment that we had been hanging out for, our engagement shoot with an amazing local photographer Dan Childs, but God was on our side we just with a couple of minutes to spare made it to our stunning accommodation, at the Commonage Villas, before he arrived. 

We spent the night exploring the outskirts for Queenstown, from parks to rivers, from wineries to mountain tops. We captured our true love like we had never had the chance to do before. 

Dan Childs lives in Queenstown but he is actually Australian born, it was great to have a photographer that we were so at ease with, there were no awkward parts at all. Because of the calm and the laughter he bought us we both agreed there would be no one else we would have to capture our wedding day, and we made the best choice but you'll have to wait for those beauties, but for now here are some that were captured on that night, Summer 2015. 

These are just a few from that night, there were quite a few more but these are just some of our favourites.

The journey continues and but all great stories are worth the wait, till next time...
Be kind and spread your light and love through the world.

Hello it's me again... and I have a new name!

It has seriously been ages since I have even gotten chance to sign onto this blog account, I would estimate around a year. So much has happened so I thought I would touch base with you all and say a huge "hi". 

So if you haven't already noticed by the name of this post, I am now married! 
Scott and I got married on the 24th of September 2015 in the magical town of Queenstown on the south island of New Zealand. It's been just over three months and it's still hard to believe that after 11 years we are finally husband and wife. Every time I see my name on a letter or on a Facebook status I have to do a double take and after a few seconds I realise that it's me and a huge smile covers my face, it's the greatest feeling. 

So other than getting married this past year we have traveled to New Zealand twice and then went to Japan later in 2015, I started a uni degree in design focusing on photography, we moved into a small unit together and had many many adventures, some good and some hard. 

I will share with you all our magical adventures in the time to come as I slowly get back into writing and sharing my world and mind with everyone again. For now I will leave you with a happy snap from our wedding, but the details of our fairytale wedding will come another day! 

Take care everyone, and remember you are the sprinkle on top of a cupcake!
