There’s always something completely magical about a wedding held on private property. Whether it’s a backyard, a farm, a beach house or an old aircraft hangar (I’ve actually had one of these and it was incredible!) there is always something profoundly intimate about holding a sacred ceremony on sacred ground. Such was the case for […]

Firstly, I get excited about basically every wedding enquiry I get (even after 8 years of doing this, pathetic, I know).

It was like a video game that got progressively more complicated, each week the boss would be harder and harder to defeat until I reached the final level and was met with Rhiannon and Michael’s 14 […]

Any business book will tell you that to stand out from the crowd you need to be doing something different. Zig when everyone else zags. To that end, when the rest of the world was busy putting together their summary of 2014 at the appropriate time (ie the last few days of the year) I […]
