When your a Photographer its hard when you have to find someone else to capture your Big Day! in the way you want it to be captured, in the same sort of style you would capture it your self!. I spent the last 2 1/2 years searching for that one Dunedin Photographer who i could know and TRUST to capture my special day that i my self had envisioned!, i spent 2 years going through blogs, websites, and Facebook and enquiring on prices looking for that perfect Dunedin Wedding photographer but just couldn't find one i really liked or that was in my price range, so i decided to visit my old polytech tutor and as we were chatting i mentioned how hard it was trying to find a photographer and that i wished he still did weddings and with that we had finally found our photographer!
As you could only imagine it was very hard to not pick up my camera and start shooting my own wedding and just sit back and relax while my photographer was taking my photos!!! but i couldn't hold back that itch and took some images of my own with the help of mum (Tina), my Makeup Artist Kristy Wood and my 3 beautiful Bridesmaids and of course our dear photographer :)
i now understand how our brides feel on and leading up to their wedding days
The EXCITEMENT, Stress and worry and a little bit of BrideZilla,
Will the weather be perfect? will the day go with out a hiccup? can i hold back the tears? and will our guest enjoy themselves? all things i know you other brides will be going through and the fact is nothing ever goes to plan
we had some hiccups along the way a bridesmaid dress went missing in the post for 7days when it was meant to be on an overnight courier, then when it finally got here it had to be re fixed as it was all out of shape and the ruching had come out because of the way an alterations company had taken it up as it was a bit long, then finally on the friday b4 the wedding we were missing a pair of groommens shoes, i was about to pall my here out
So here is how i spent my wedding day!!!!!!!
The Date of our wedding day was a very special date it was the birth date of my late father Ronnie Watt who passed away when i was only 10 on March 13th 1998 of a Heart attack in Auckland's Greenlane Hospital.

Tim's Mum & Dad came to see how we were getting on and to let us know that the boys had just left of the ceremony
Tina, the Girls and i + the boys and Tim's Family Helped set the reception up the night before the wedding and did a fantastic job at it! it turned an old boring rugby club in to a dream wedding reception
I had such a lovely day and can't wait to get the rest of my photos and Videos :)
