Erich McVey couldn’t have  captured this stunning New Zealand wedding any more perfectly. These absolutely beautiful images of the New Zealand landscapes and rolling hills simply took our breath away. The bride wanted to keep her wedding simple and elegant, and she totally hit the nail on the head. We love all of the organic and natural details of their wedding, and this unreal setting made for the perfect backdrop.

From the bride:

I do event management on the side, so when it came to my wedding, I knew I wanted my wedding to look as natural and simple as possible and I knew just the place. I wanted my photos to look soft and dreamy, so we went with Erich McVey, a gifted man, very talented and very passionate about what he does. He is a professional. A rare find. And his lovely wife! Oh she is just so adorable! So lovable! If you’ve met her you would know what I meant, it’s impossible not to love her. They are such a lovely couple and people you feel genuinely privileged to have met. 

I started with theming my wedding, then created idea boards for each element of my wedding, eg. Table, cake, reception décor, ceremony venue décor, hair, make-up, flower, dress etc. From these idea boards, I contacted vendors and suppliers, and started visiting venues. I love organizing events but it was so much extra fun organizing my own! I just love beautiful perfections. My make-up artist said she had finally met someone who makes her obsessive-compulsive attention to detail disorder look normal. Haha. But I don’t mind being called that, I’ve always been that and it’s a helpful trait when it comes to event planning.

I designed my own wedding invitation but didn’t have the talent to draw, so I hired a graphic designer to draw and design my wedding invitation. It was fun choosing the right font, the layout, front cover and back cover design of the card, everything. It took hours and hours of work but so much fun. I made all my wedding stationery including the program and save the date. 

My very favorite moment from the day was holding David’s hands at the alter. It was just him and I in that moment. We read our vows in Korean and I think my voice was trembling and only David could make out what I wanted to say which made the moment even more special. We were with everyone and we were kinda alone, it was like singing lovers secret song that others didn’t understand.

I would very much like to know if Erich McVey EVER takes a bad photo. These are so beautiful. Elegant yet informal, intimate and yet not intrusive… fluid yet not messy… just perfect. Amazing work, as always.
