Honeymoon! | New Zealand

I’m back from a much needed break, ready for what 2014 has in store for me! What an awesome year it’s already been. I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph a wedding in New Zealand, and being so close to my own wedding we thought we may as well both go and turn it into our honeymoon. I’m so glad we did, we had an absolute ball. It was amazing how much we could see and do in two weeks. We traveled right from the top of the north island all the way down to the south island. It was a good mix, we did half resorts then hired a motor-home to do the other half in the south island. What an adventure that was. We did a lot of driving, eating, relaxing, drinking, sight seeing and I even jumped out of a plane. I never thought I would ever sky dive, but for some reason something just came over me and it didn’t take much convincing. Jason loves his adrenalin activities so he was in his element in Queenstown. Luckily we got to finish off the trip with some cocktails and lazing by the pool in the Bay of Islands. (My favourite bit)

I don’t usually take a lot of photos when I go on holidays, (I know how strange that sounds) I usually just like to take it all in and live in the moment without my camera. Everyone kept telling me just how beautiful New Zealand was in the months leading up to us going, so I thought I’d better take a few snaps while I was there. Again, I never usually take these types of photos but I’d thought everyone would be disappointed if I came back with nothing to show! So these are just a few places we went…

And back home again… I wish I could just do January all over, it’s been the best time of my life! I’ve seen so many beautiful places that words can’t describe or photos can’t even capture. I feel like a very lucky girl. x
