At the start of this year I travelled to New Zealand to photograph the wedding of Sam & Karin. When we arrived in Gisborne a couple of days before the wedding and I met their families, I very quickly realised how special this wedding was. Myself and my family were very quickly invited in to be a part of the preparations and celebrations before the wedding had even taken place. The warmth and hospitality of the Jillett family is second to none. Nestled in amongst sweet corn fields and mountains on the other side is the house where Sam grew up. A house that has been in the family for many generations and that his uncle and aunty now live in. I felt so very honoured to be invited to capture this day and also so so excited to shoot in this incredible landscape.
This is the wedding of Sam & Karin.
