Kia Ora and welcome!

This is exciting! You are thinking about your beautiful, meaningful wedding in the gorgeous Coromandel Peninsula of New Zealand. You have come to the right place. 

Hi! I'm Rose and I am here to help you create a meaningful day that celebrates YOUR love, YOUR way.

Maybe you already know exactly how you want to spend your wedding day! Or maybe your have no idea, but you know that you DON'T want a Church, an ice sculpture, 150 guests and to start your new life together in debt.

Either way, I would love to talk things through with you, and support you in making choices that are right for you.

So what even is an Elopement wedding?  And why are they so popular right now?

Let's think about  just what Eloping in the Coromandel Peninsula could mean for you!

I believe that an Elopement is a wedding that is deliberately intimate, meaningful to the couple, and focused on the couple and their experience.

It is a wedding that celebrates two unique individuals and their love story, THEIR way.

This usually means that an Elopement involves less than 25 people. Because with more guests, the focus of the day inevitably begin to shift away from the couple and their experience, and onto the guests experience.

Elopements do not have to be adventurous, or cheap, or quick. They can vary as widely as big weddings;
Your Elopement wedding could last all day, it could be at the beach, up a mountain, downtown or at your favorite brewery!

Eloping means that your time, money and attention can all be focused on pleasing YOURSELVES and creating a day that is perfect for you both; it can free you from having to think about pleasing your parents, conforming to traditions, placating your community or your church. You can be truly present in a beautiful place, with your loved one.


Two Day Wedding Coverage

This involves 4 hours and 10 hours of photography over two days.

You could use the 4 hours to cover a special dinner, a visit to the Hot Springs, or another local adventure! Then All  Day Wedding coverage the next day: Getting ready, First Look, Heading to your ceremony, your wedding, a beach photoshoot, a picnic, another gorgeous location to explore...

Elopement Photography... why is it important?

This is your wedding day we are talking about here!

Your Elopement Wedding might look different from a traditional wedding, but it is every bit as valuable, as special, and as important. I believe that your wedding day deserves documenting. I am going to help you plan such a wonderful day, with the perfect balance of adventure and relaxation, packed with fun activities that you two love to do to together.

And while your memories of your  special day will eventually fade, your beautiful digital photos will always remain bright and clear, to be printed again, and looked at again, and loved and enjoyed. Your photos are an investment in your future happiness, and they also extra valuable as they may be the only way for friends and family around the world to get to share in the joy of your wedding day -from afar!
