Anna and Matt - Lancewood Villa

Anna and Matt were two of the most kind, fun-loving, and genuine souls I’ve had the privilege of working with. They were married at the stunning Lancewood Villa in Upper Moutere, but only just… as a mere few days before they were set to wed, a fire ripped through the Tasman region, threatening many homes and farming communities - Lancewood Villa right in it’s flaming path. Despite almost being without a venue only a few days out, Anna and Matt took it all in their stride - they’d be married and celebrate their love no matter what (or where). 

Fortunately, the firefighters were able to get the blaze under control just in time for this wonderful celebration to go on as planned, and oh what a day it was! One for the books I reckon. 

My favourite moment: When A&M ‘s good friend performed an acoustic song he had written entirely about their love story. Hilarious, heart-warming and perfectly executed. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house!

Congratulations to these two fabulous lovebirds - and thank you so much for inviting me along to document all the magic!
